Renew & manage competence

When we work together to grow competent professionals and commit them to your company, we create conditions for success.

Open the door to success

70% of companies will face changing competence needs in the coming years.

Yes, you read that right. Seven out of ten decision-makers in the fields of business and HR expect their company’s strategic competence needs to change over the next 3–5 years. This shows that competence management is now more important than ever.

By renewing and managing the competence in your company, you create ways to successfully meet critical work life needs. For some companies, these can mean career coaching on an individual level, for others, finetuning roles and developing the culture of learning and competence. Even though the goal can be achieved in many different ways, the goal itself is always the same: creation of conditions for growth and success. Now and in the future.




In your opinion, do you have the necessary tools to overcome the change in competence needs?

With our help, your organisation will grow to support success at each of its levels.




When competence is managed and renewed on an individual level, potential can be harnessed and even career challenges can be solved effectively. This is one of the key ways of improving employees’ comfort and their commitment to you. The results include benefits such as significantly decreased staff turnover.

Placing people in suitable roles and investing in teamwork create well-functioning and efficient teams and ensure the competitiveness of the entire work community. The work community is both an honest indicator of the company’s well-being and a significant pull factor for the employer. Genuine investment in the work community is a prerequisite for successful goal-oriented business.






Competence management creates savings in personnel costs and has a direct impact on the company’s profit. Even though the impacts can be seen quickly, the greatest benefit will become evident in the long run. When competence renewal and management are included in the company’s strategy, it is always one step ahead of the changes and trends in the work life.

The training days that take place inside the lab are important and create a basis for skills. The training is applied in practice through mentoring by Veikkaus. The biggest thing is on-the-job learning. It accounts for up to 80–90% of the learning journey. We try to support learning in such a way that every time a trainee learns a new skill, they can apply it immediately in practice.

Of course, we all had some expectations about how things would go at each place. We were positively surprised by how well the training courses went and how well they were received.
