Kela is a reliable employer

Kela provides social security coverage for Finnish residents and many Finns living abroad through the different stages of their lives. Our operations are of key societal importance: we produce information and research on social security, build information systems and help to draft legislative amendments.

We are a reliable employer that takes good care of our employees. We employ more than 8,000 professionals from many different fields. Our staff are located throughout the country, from the southern tip of Finland to northern Lapland.

We are an organisation with a long history, but one characterised by a spirit of learning and continuous development.  A customer-oriented culture, service design and agile development are part of our everyday operations.

We take our wider organisational responsibilities seriously

It is important for us to act responsibly as an organisation. We are a large employer, and recognising our staff’s diversity and promoting equality and non-discrimination are key parts of our social responsibility agenda.

We also do our best to build environmental responsibility into our operations, particularly when it comes to the use of our facilities. We encourage our staff to make a difference. All staff members can take one half-day off each year to do volunteer or charity work.

Our values are respect for the individual, expertise, cooperation, renewal.
