Recruitment Experience Of 10 Years!

Silk Road Workforce Management has provided recruitment services for a decade already! In these 10 years of operation, the company has grown considerably. It has become a leading partner for Finnish companies looking for foreign employees and for workers looking for opportunities abroad. The company started with a small team of 4 enthusiastic family members. They simply wanted to create opportunities for Filipinos in Finland. Nowadays there are over 60 employees working daily to provide the best possible service for the clients as well as for the recruits. 

The Beginning

When we first started our recruitment program, it focused heavily on the Philippines as a source of skilled recruits. We based this decision on the fact that there was a surplus of highly trained professionals in the Philippines, but a lack of opportunities for them to apply their skills. We recognized this and began recruiting Filipino professionals to meet the needs of Finnish companies. The first workers arrived in Finland at the end of April 2013. The recruitment program has been continuous ever since then.

Challenges and Successes 

The path we chose has been challenging at times. After these 10 years in the business we can proudly say we know how to overcome any recruitment related situation. The ability to overcome challenges and adapt to the ever-changing demands of the labor market has been one of the key factors in our success. As the demand for labor has increased, we have continuously expanded our recruitment program, making connecting employers and employees easier than ever. 

Development of the Program 

In the last 10 years, we have continuously refined and developed all the phases of the program into the well-oiled machine it is today. We have a clear path when it comes to finding the best possible recruits for the program. We have learned how to train the recruits so that they can manage with the language and adapting to the culture. Additionally, we have become well-versed in handling residence permit processing. We have also found a way to facilitate a smooth transition for new workers arriving in Finland through our local orientation program. This progress is a substantial improvement from when our first four employees handled the whole process from finding the recruits until picking them up from the airport.

Our success in workforce management is not only due to our recruitment program, but also due our ability to provide value-adding services for our clients. Our language training and cultural orientation programs help with the integration of workers into their new environment. In addition, they also enable effective communication with colleagues and clients. These services are just a few examples of how we go beyond the expected to ensure the success of our clients’ workforce.

Expansion and Global Reach 

The need for especially nurses and caregivers has lately increased a lot in Finland. With this increased need comes an increased interest in our program from employers all around Finland. Back in 2013 we started operating with one key client. Now we have multiple employers that are taking part in our recruitment program. This has created a perfect platform for our company to grow. We continuously keep looking for different options to develop our recruitment program.  

As the recruitment program continues to evolve, we recognized the need to expand our reach beyond the Philippines. This decision was driven by the increasing demand for skilled workers, as well as the desire to offer more opportunities to workers looking for employment in Finland. At first, we started the language training as an in-class study program. From that we have evolved it to be more flexible and accessible all over the world. Today, we operate worldwide, and it is possible for any nationality to sign up to our recruitment program.  

Recruitment Experience with Thousands of Workers  

Silk Road’s growth has been nothing short of remarkable. In our first year of operation, we recruited 31 workers from the Philippines. Today, the number of workers recruited worldwide annually is in the thousands. 

This growth has been made possible by our commitment to excellence in recruitment and workforce management as well. Our recruitment program is tailored to the needs of each client. We ensure that they find the right candidates for their specific requirements. At the same time, we provide comprehensive support services. Those include assistance with residence permit applications, and help with finding accommodation to the workers already in Finland, for example. This has helped us to ensure that workers are able to focus on their work and perform at their best. 

Looking forward, we are determined to continue our growth and expand our services even further. With the ongoing need for skilled workers in Finland, we are well-positioned to help companies find the right candidates and workers to find the right opportunities.

Recruitment Experience Leads to Success

Through it all, we have remained committed to our core values of integrity, professionalism, and customer satisfaction. We take pride in our ability to find the right workers for the right jobs. As Silk Road continues to grow and evolve, we remain committed to these values and to providing the best possible service. 

Our success is due to our ability to adapt to changing demands, provide value-added services, prioritize the well-being of our workers and of course, the ten years of recruitment experience. With a strong recruitment program, a great team, and a commitment to excellence, Silk Road is poised to continue its growth and success in the years to come.

    Moi! I attended an orientation last month, recieved the study kit, submitted my documents, and booked the interview, but was cancelled 2 times, and now waiting for my next booked interview on last week of May. Just want to ask if why did this happen? Hope they won’t cancel my booking again.
    Kiitos paljon.

  17. I booked for the interview on discord app on the 9th of May but could not connect to do the interview when I tried booking again, I could not manage.

  19. Sitembekile Khumalo

    Thank you for the updates that you have made for this programme.I am hoping to be part of the team that will be in Finland soon.I have already signed up again so that I am part of the new tool..

  20. Hi Rowena!
    That’s really weird. Usually our interviewers are supposed to include a message to the recruit if they need to cancel an interview. The most common reason for canceled interviews is the interviewer falling ill and not being able to work. I hope your next interview takes place as planned! If something happens again please be in contact and we will look into this further with the interviewer in question.

  21. Sitembekile Khumalo

    Hi Simon

  26. Hi Dorah!
    Before an interview can be booked your documents must be checked and approved. If there is something missing you will get an email with another chance to submit all the documents needed. If our team determines the documents to be obviously not eligible then you will also get a letter of rejection. If all documents are approved you will receive your booking link.
