Why Tampere?

International competence is becoming more and more important for companies and organisations in the Tampere region. International talents bring enrichment, intercultural skills and new ways of thinking to our workplaces. In the knowledge-intensive economy, access to talent is a main driver of productivity, innovation and economic growth. There are a great number of international degree students in our higher education institutes who wish to stay in Finland and in the Tampere region after finishing their studies. Staff at the higher education institutes in Tampere receives an increasing number of questions relating to career issues and working life from international students. In addition to students, international talents who have recently graduated from their studies in Tampere or immigrated to Tampere for other reasons are faced with an unfamiliar working culture when looking for a job and seeking to establish their careers in Finland. Then again, employers in the Tampere region should have the ability to utilise the international talent these students and the recently graduated have to offer. Working life is getting more and more diverse and multicultural, and many companies need to operate beyond the national borders daily. Employers that are prepared for this will be successful in the future. International talents can offer

their know-how and skills for the internationalisation processes of companies and organisations. That is why these two target groups – employers and international talents – should be brought closer together. We at Tampere Region Economic Development Agency, Tredea, believe that skilled talents contribute to creation of knowledge and innovation. Talents and diversity in one place lead to growth and international students in our higher education institutes are definitely a significant part in this. The availability of highly skilled workforce is a significant pull-factor for foreign investors. Tampere has to be a part of the international brain-circulation to maintain and strengthen its reputation as the smartest, brightest place in Finland! I wish you welcome to explore Tampere from the angles of visit, invest, innovate and live in the Tampere AllBright portal: www.tampereallbright.fi
