What is E-P WIISE Ry?

Etelä-Pohjanmaan Work Integration for Immigrants Service (WIISE) is a social enterprise in the form of a membership association. The aim of E-P WIISE Ry is to create and maintain a positive ecosystem in Etelä-Pohjanmaa, in which immigrants and Finns who move to the area can thrive. In which they integrate into everyday life and settle into working life. The idea is to:

  • act in support of individuals and organizations who seek to pursue their own activities
  • increase the vitality and attractiveness of Etelä-Pohjanmaa
  • support people who have moved from other parts of Finland, or abroad, into employment, entrepreneurship and to integrate in Etelä-Pohjanmaa
  • support organizations in the region in accessing workers and organising development activities
  • take action on a variety of issues related to employment, entrepreneurship and integration 
  • act as a support and link to development projects
  • promote equality
  • promote the internationalization of the region

In order to achieve these goals, the association:

  • provides services to members and stakeholders such as mentoring, sparring, coaching and training
  • organizes meetings and events
  • implements development projects and other schemes
  • engages in information sharing and publication activities
  • may distribute grants or otherwise financially support the development of its region
  • cooperates with municipalities, public administration organizations, companies, associations and other stakeholders.
