Hiring in Finland

Known as the land of a thousand lakes, the Finns are heavy metal-loving, happy folks – Finland frequently tops lists of ‘happiest people in the world’. And for good reason; Finland enjoys a stable democracy, high quality of living, extensive social welfare and extensive civil liberties.

The Finnish economy is highly diversified and transparent, with extensive trading relationships with the EU and neighbours Sweden and Norway. The services sector makes up 66% of Finland’s GDP, and despite a population of only 5.5 million, Finland matches nations like France and the UK in terms of per capita output.

Working in Finland, like other Scandinavian countries, is all about the employee. Finns enjoy competitive salaries at all skill levels compared to other European nations, some of the most thorough employment laws on earth, and systems designed to boost equality. Women in Finland can expect a higher chance of a managerial role and maternity pay is world-leading. Expert payroll services in Finland are recommended to navigate legal and tax systems that aren’t as straightforward as other European nations.
