There must be an easier way
The year was 1994. NAFTA and EEA were established. Finland held a referendum for joining the European Union. Nelson Mandela became the first black president of South-Africa. Michael Schumacher won his first Formula 1 Championship. Justin Bieber was born. In May of ’94 a giant leap for Finland’s internationalization also took place.
International mobility to and from Finland was almost nonexistent, but one woman and her family had already experienced it twice. Upon her return to Finland and facing a seemingly endless struggle with the bureaucracy, while getting reaccustomed to her homeland, one thought crossed her mind – ”There must be an easier way”. That thought gave birth to Finland Relocation Services, a thoroughbred professional in international mobility from its conception.
The newly-founded company aided Finnish corporations in conquering the challenges of international mobility. Residence permit applications, wrestling with international taxation, and apartment search for the new employees as well as the increasingly important role of families in relocations quickly proved to be important services for companies and added value to the organizations. When the competition for the top talent became increasingly fierce, more and more companies came to realize how much easier it is to attract – not to mention retain – talent when relocation services are properly managed from the beginning.
Deep in the core of the company were ingrained personal experience and understanding of the challenges of international mobility and the knowledge of how to overcome them. When the time came for Finland Relocation Services to grow, the new team members were chosen based on international and intercultural understanding and personal international mobility experience. The new blood provided additional experience and understanding from different countries and cultures, allowing Finland Relocation Services to provide unparalleled service to our clients.
One cannot be a part of an international industry without being a part of international communities and organizations. That is why Finland Relocation Services joined the leading global international mobility and relocation networks. As the Finnish representative of TIRA (The International Relocation Association) and a full member of EuRA (European Relocation Association) we are continuously cooperating with the other members of our networks.
It is through these strategic partnerships that large international corporations recognize FRS as the leading relocation services company in Finland and today we are proud to operate as the local representative of the world’s leading international relocation management companies.
