Business Kuopio


Employment by purchases

All Kuopio city’s purchases over 200 000 euros must include social employment stipulation. This means that if the city is purchasing service or construction, part of the purchase amount has to consume in employment. The aim is to create new jobs for long-term unemployed and for young unemployed. The model also gives entrepreneurs possibility to carry social responsibility. Our job as Employment Service is to find skilled labor for entrepreneurs and for example to do preselection.
