Castrén & Snellman top 3 employer in Responsible Summer Job contest

The Responsible Summer Job campaign, led by Oikotie Työpaikat, challenges employers to offer more summer jobs of better quality and positive summer job experiences to young people. The best employers are awarded each year in the Responsible Summer Job contest. The winners are chosen based on the summer employees’ feedback on their employers, collected in a survey that maps the summer job experiences.

The top 10 summer employers are recognised in three categories. Our firm participated in the category for small and medium-sized organisations, and this year we were proud to place third.

The summer job survey, conducted over the summer job season, covered 552 organisations, 31 of which competed in our category. 11,600 summer employees took part in the survey. They rated their employers using criteria such as the application experience, orientation, meaningful tasks and fair treatment. Our firm received special thanks for the application experience and meaningful tasks, and we ranked in the top 3 of our category in these criteria.

Our summer trainees appreciated the interesting tasks we offer as well as their great colleagues:

‘This summer I was a supervising junior trainee at C&S. I really enjoyed my tasks and being trusted with the orientation of our new junior trainees. My awesome colleagues were definitely the highlight of my summer. We spent many lunch and coffee breaks on the terrace enjoying the summer (and ice cream). Overall, I had an unforgettable summer at C&S!’ says Ida Hukkanen, who continued at C&S as a knowledge management trainee after her summer traineeship.

Our HR Director Outi Ruohola extends her thanks to all of our summer employees:

‘We are very grateful for the positive reviews we received from our summer employees. A good employee experience is something we work hard for. We employed 50 trainees over the summer, and every one of them made valuable contributions and played a role in making sure the summer was a success for our firm. A big thank you to our awesome summer employees!’
