    Revamping the employability of highly skilled immigrants in Finland2019In: Siirtolaisuus - Migration, ISSN 0355-3779, Vol. 4, p. 20-24Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The employability and employment rate of foreign origin people have been actively discussed in Finland. The phenomenon is also related to attracting highly skilled workers to Finland. While many public and private bodies are working on to attract talent from abroad, the existing foreign origin talent within Finland has been largely overlooked. The official data shows that there is not much improvement in the employability of foreign origin skilled workers in the last decade or so. To what degree is there a pool of highly skilled workers with foreign background available on the Finnish labour market, who are not employed to an equal degree with native Finns? The purpose of this article is to examine the officially available information on this issue. The article also explores the role of the gender and last names biases in the recruiting process. Finally, it discusses the Finnish Government plans and measures to tackle the present situation effectively.

    Working from home: the future after the corona pandemic?2020In: Foreigner.fi, no 28-mars, p. 3Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    There were huge differences in people’s lives after both World War I and II in the world. Those world wars affected all circles of life including social lives, people’s behaviour, crisis management, economic measures and polices.

    The post-war era also changed collaborations among countries, with enemies becoming friends and working together becoming the new norm. By the end of 2019, the world had become a global village with nearly all countries coordinating, doing business and connecting to each other in one way or another. However, 2020 has not begun well due to the epidemic of the corona virus in Wuhan (China) that would later become a global pandemic.
