Abstract [en]

The employability and employment rate of foreign origin people have been actively discussed in Finland. The phenomenon is also related to attracting highly skilled workers to Finland. While many public and private bodies are working on to attract talent from abroad, the existing foreign origin talent within Finland has been largely overlooked. The official data shows that there is not much improvement in the employability of foreign origin skilled workers in the last decade or so. To what degree is there a pool of highly skilled workers with foreign background available on the Finnish labour market, who are not employed to an equal degree with native Finns? The purpose of this article is to examine the officially available information on this issue. The article also explores the role of the gender and last names biases in the recruiting process. Finally, it discusses the Finnish Government plans and measures to tackle the present situation effectively.
