Finland - A safe and secure society
Finland is a world leader in wellbeing. We have exceptionally high living standards, a clean and secure environment and one of the best education systems in the word.
With a world-leading education system accessible to all, Finland also outperforms in gender equality.
An outstanding universal health care system and day care for children has also facilitated equality, sustainability and functionality of society. Families with children are especially well taken care of by society, and their lives are made easier by the many types of support and benefits available, such as comprehensive parental leave, Wellbeing for families means wellbeing for children.
Wellbeing from nature
In Finland, access to clean nature and vast forests are everyman’s rights—you can walk, ski or cycle freely wherever you want, irrespective of land ownership. You can pick wild berries, mushrooms and flowers, fish, use boats, swim in lakes, rivers and the sea. You can enjoy the fresh, pollution-free air and forests—the Green Gold of Finland —which are the most important natural resource as well as the source of harmony and peace of mind.
Easy to come and work
Finland is a world leader in communication. An advanced transport infrastructure and smooth-running logistics are key strengths of Finland’s economy. Helsinki-Vantaa Airport is recognized as one of the world’s best international airports by IATA and ASQ surveys. It not only offers direct flights to most of the EU capitals but also acts as the fastest route between Northern Europe and Asia.
In addition, Finland has some of the lowest levels of corruption in the world. A high degree of social trust, respect for agreements and keeping one’s word are ingrained in our culture. Finland’s well-established and functioning state bureaucracy, an effective rule of law and various personal freedoms and civil liberties such as one of the world’s most progressive gender equality legislation—mean that the Finnish operating environment is stable and predictable.
Relocating to and living in Finland is easy. Finns are multilingual, well-travelled and highly internationally oriented. English is the common second language of the business community. Finnish consumers are early adopters of emerging technologies, which makes Finland an ideal place for testing out new ideas and solutions. An international, innovative and lively business environment also offers excellent career opportunities also for spouses of EMA employees.
In short, Finland is a country where everything just works.
