Summer Employees Once Again Name Castrén & Snellman as One of the Most Responsible Employers in Summer Job Survey

Castrén & Snellman was once again named one of the most responsible employers by summer employees in an annual summer job survey. C&S rose two positions in the ranking from last year, placing second in the category of small and medium-sized organisations. Respondents gave C&S an average summer job experience score of 3.8/4 and the highest score for the application process.

The summer job survey is part of the Vastuullinen kesäduuni (Responsible Summer Job) campaign. The top ten summer employers are ranked each year in three different categories based on the size of company. The survey was carried out over the summer job season and covered 129 companies. The survey received a total of 9,458 responses. Employers were rated among other things, on the application process, induction, motivating tasks and fair treatment.

‘I’d like to thank all of our summer employees! This was an exceptional summer, as most of our personnel was working remotely. Despite the circumstances, we wanted to provide as normal a trainee experience as possible. We had about forty trainees working for us over the summer, and every one of them played a role in making sure the summer was a success for our firm’, says HR Director Outi Ruohola.

Our summer trainees once again appreciated the interesting tasks we offer and trust we place in trainees as well as our warm workplace atmosphere.

‘This was the second time I applied to C&S for a summer job, one particular reason being that I am always encouraged to do things my way. The firm values the opinions of trainees and encourages us to think independently and trust our own abilities’, says Karin Hentunen, who continued working at the firm as a project trainee after the summer.

‘At C&S, I got to work in a great team  and motivating environment where the work done by trainees it genuinely appreciated and considered important’, says Julius Forsblom, who worked as junior trainee over the summer and continued working as a project trainee in the autumn.

The Vastuullinen kesäduuni campaign, driven by Oikotie Työpaikat, challenges employers to offer more summer jobs of better quality to young persons aged 14 to 29. The summer job survey is carried out by IROResearch every year.
