Culture Connect Breakfast 14.5.2024 klo 8.15 alkaen Salo IoT Campus.

Welcome to the “Culture Meets Breakfast” event, specifically targeted at representatives and employers of companies, with the theme of multicultural work environment and its management.

The event is part of the KotoSalo and KotoSomero projects, where Yrityssalo Oy is responsible for employer cooperation and promoting multiculturalism and diversity in work communities.

In Finland, the population is declining. This leads to a future where our working life is increasingly international and work communities are more diverse.

How do we find solutions to language problems? How do we connect with non-Finnish speakers in the Finnish working life? Did you know that about 10% of the residents in the Salon region are non-Finnish speakers?

During the breakfast event, we will discuss companies’ experiences with multiculturalism and the specific characteristics of diversity.
The event will feature examples from companies such as Vaisala Oyj, Marine Alutech, Hotel & Cafè Mathildedal, and Suur-Seudun Osuuskauppa SSO.
