The co-operation between educational institutions and companies is active in the Helsinki Ring of Industry region. When there is a need to train workforce or recruit new employees, educational institutions and municipalities are happy to help. An excellent example is the recently launched Logis project that connects and trains job seekers to fill vacancies in the bustling logistic sector.
Hyria, a vocational educational institution operating in the HRI region, runs the project that involves logistic operators and local cities Hyvinkää, Mäntsälä, Nurmijärvi, Pornainen, Riihimäki and Tuusula. Logis project offers a platform for potential recruits to try out intralogistics work and for companies an opportunity to recruit trained personnel.
“For example, we organize one- or two-day trial periods in partner companies for people interested in the field who have no previous experience of intralogistics work. An employee of the company, together with Hyria’s trainer, familiarizes the potential recruits with the safety practices and different tasks of the workplace. The goal is for people to get excited about the work and go on to study for a degree in logistics, or to be directly employed by the company,” explains Hyria’s trainer Marko Liimatta. The results so far have been encouraging, with enthusiastic students studying for a degree in logistics and motivated recruits finding employment in the logistic companies.
