#MinussaOnMahdollisuuksia grant

The application period for the #MinussaOnMahdollisuuksia grant expired at the end of October. We received a huge number of excellent applications for developing your own expertise and making your dreams come true! It will be a big and difficult decision when we start to look for those to whom we want to offer an opportunity for further training in ife. The working group for the grant will make its proposal to the Board of Directors of YTK which will decide on the recipient of the grants on 13 December 2019. We will then contact the recipients of grant personally.


Ghosts, robots and heroes of odd jobs in working life

The growing pressures of the working life, the Competitiveness Pact hours, and applicable collective agreements will stay in talks in every week of the year that is coming to an end. People like to see demands of work, robots, algorithms and platform industries as threats and definite signs of the worsening of working life. At the same time, the autonomy of employees, technical aids and inspiring working environments have turned the working life undeniable for the better, although the improvements are rarely reported in the media.


Webinar on 27 November at 5 p.m. - Identifying and developing your own strengths in your career

The working life calls for continuous changes and development from us, but does your strength only stem from demands or your strengths, too?

Sign up for the one-hour seminar in which an expert from Mazhr reviews how your own strengths and natural behavioural patterns create a basis for fruitful self-development throughout your career. 

Webinar is in Finnish.
