How to Motivate and Show Appreciation of Your Employees? 22 Oct 2019, Helsinki

The Finnish and the Swiss Set of Mind

It is a widely accepted understanding that those companies and institutions that value their employees are most often those who experience a sustainable growth and positive image in the market.

Formal as well as informal recognition as an integral part of the company culture is vital. It is easy to identify benefits of employee appreciation such as better motivation, improved work and team culture, better effort, improved customer satisfaction, less absence from work etc.

Employees want to feel valued and know that they are appreciated. New creative ways to who recognition is continuously developed. But how to do it cross-border? Is there anything that can go wrong?

Leading diverse teams for breakthrough performance, Singapore

FBC and INSEAD welcome you to the event "Leading diverse teams for breakthrough performance"!

It seems few of us can escape working in some form of a team if we are to survive in modern organizations. Working in teams can often lead to better decisions than those by people working alone; of course, it may also be true that while stupid mistakes are made by individuals, truly colossal mistakes are only made by teams. In this talk, we will look at what makes for effective teamwork in high-pressure contexts, and in particular how to realize the great potential of diversity in such contexts. 

When: October 8, 2019, at 6.30 pm
Where: INSEAD, 1 Ayer Rajah Ave, Singapore 138676

Baltics and Nordics getting closer together: how to deepen and expand Latvian and Finnish economic relations

Time             12th June 2019 from 15:00 to 17:00

Place            Embassy of Latvia, Armfeltintie 10, 00150 Helsinki

After a period of somewhat day-to-day interrelation if compared to the “romantic wave” of the beginning of the 90ies, one might argue that the Baltics and Nordics are getting closer again. Finland joins Rail Baltica and a Finn becomes the CEO of RB Rail; Estonia, Finland and Latvia has agreed on a common gas market; the electricity market between the Baltics and Nordics is in place already.

Could these new circumstances give a positive boost to the economic relations between Finland and Latvia? Could the objective of the new Latvian government to continue moving steadily to a higher value added economy and proceed with several hard reforms be a helpful driver? What about the perspective and priorities of the Finnish economy?

We wish you warmly welcome to this event to exchange views on the perspectives of the deepening Latvian and Finnish economic cooperation.

The event is organised by the Embassy of Latvia in cooperation with Investment and Development Agency of Latvia, Finnish-Latvian Business Association, Helsinki Region Chamber of Commerce, Business Finland and Enterprise Europe Network.

Finnish-British Chamber of Commerce: breakfast event Holistic Leadership with Dr Sandhya Karpe! HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP

Warmly welcome to join the breakfast event Holistic Leadership with Dr Sandhya Karpe!

HOLISTIC LEADERSHIP

Life is a many-splendored thing…

 

Research indicates that there is a strong business case for encouraging employees to “bring their whole selves to work”, because of a strong co-relationship between the psychological safety that this creates and employee engagement.

As a leader, how do you define your own success? Have you taken the time to enjoy the richness that life has to offer and encouraged your staff to do the same? You may be surprised at how this approach could deliver higher engagement, productivity and better business results. Join us for a stimulating conversation about Holistic Leadership, presented by Dr Sandhya Karpe.
