The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and employment administration have jointly prepared a transitional strategy for public employment and business services (TE services), which outlines the priorities for these services in the coming years. The strategy focuses on ensuring individual services and an employer-based recruitment service. The strategy also emphasises strategic partnership and digitalisation.

Key points of the TE Services Strategy

  • Strengthen the start of job search and provision of individual services
  • Combine employer and jobseeker services into recruitment services
  • Support SMEs in recruitment, growth, internationalisation and changing circumstances in close cooperation with the network of partners
  • Focus on new entrepreneurship
  • Focus on efficient and multi-channel services
  • Reform the service structure of TE Offices and create a multi-channel service model
  • Competent and valued personnel is an important resource
  • Knowledge-based management is a key part of developing the service system

The strategy takes into consideration the ongoing reforms of the structures and organisation of the employment administration. These reforms include municipal experiments on employment, Nordic labour market service model, preparation of a permanent service structure, reform of the service organisation for continuous learning, and expansion of multi-channel services.
