What is Mi Casa for Business?
Mi Casa for Business is a program that helps businesses that want to help their international employees to integrate in to Finland. Part of this process is to help the employee to find a home form Finland.
Only thing is, the information needed isn’t readily available and a business won’t nesessarily have their own resources to do the research. On top of that, a business should find a person to teach the information to the workers who need the knowledge.
All in all the process can be difficult and time consuming…
This is where Mi Casa comes to help
MiCasa’s founder Sakari Tolppanen has done the research and constructed a workshop with all the knowleage he has acquired from his research.
The workshop is a four-hour online course in which Sakari goes through all the nesessary information you would need to buy a home in Finland.
This particular course has been held in other businesses and the feedback has been notably positive (NPS=78), so book one for your business now by contacting Sakari at email@example.com
