What we do?

We negotiate and we drive change 

We are a powerful labour market operator: we are involved in negotiating around half of all Finnish collective agreements. We want to create a competitive labour market for Finland. We reform working life and promote the determination of the terms of employment company- and workplace-specifically.

We train and we develop 

We offer practical help and advice to our members on a range of matters, including HR and employment relationships. We provide information, training and all the latest updates on labour law. 

We communicate and we influence 

We ensure that the voice of the service sector is heard by our political decision makers and in the broader debate. We communicate to a variety of audiences: we raise our sector’s profile and diversify the image of the sector. 

We disseminate information to our members and create networks 

We generate new information for our member businesses on the latest developments in the service sector, foreign trade of services, economic trends and the labour market. We offer opportunities and working groups for networking and for sparring partners for our members.
