Keskiviikko 16.12.2020 – 

Työ- ja elinkeinoministeriö Valtioneuvoston viestintäosasto

Welcome to listen and discuss about the main findings of the project International Models to Attract Foreign Workers and Talent! The project was conducted as part of the Finnish government’s analysis, assessment, and research activities from December 2019 until December 2020.

The study takes two contextual approaches to the talent attraction. First, it looks at the tal-ent attraction in global context and identifies six emerging trends that are accentuated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Second, the study benchmarks the permit process models in com-parison countries. The report shares the main findings and implications on what Finland can learn from experiences and processes of other countries. 

The findings will be utilized in developing the work and study based residence permit pro-cesses and talent attraction activities in the national Talent Boost programme.
