General unemployment fund YTK - open to all salaried employeesJoin here!
We want to share the song given to us as a thank-you gift to all quiet workers in Finland
At the beginning of May, we YTK employees received a surprise gift, a song called Kuva made for us to encourage and thank us. During this exceptional spring, many people are working for the common good – not just in Loimaa but all over Finland. That is why we wanted to pass on the good feeling and share the beautiful song with all quiet workers. Listen to the song on YouTube and share it further!
Case YTK – How we responded to the coronavirus crisis and almost doubled our personnel in exceptional circumstances
It dawned to us early this year that we will soon need a large number of new employees to clear the backlog of applications for daily allowance caused by the coronavirus outbreak. During the past month we have already received some 30,000 applications, while normally we receive around 45,000 applications per year. To respond to that workload we have hired 100 new employees in the midst of exceptional circumstances and remote working. That’s quite a number!
Why can’t I apply for daily allowance for the duration of the entire lay-off in one go?
Tens of thousands of people are applying for unemployment benefits perhaps for the first time in their life. We are then faced with questions about issues that are so self-evident to us that we have not informed about them in the required extent and with required clarity. Questions arise about the practices of applying for daily allowance in particular.
100 new heads, 200 ears and hands
It dawned to Anne Pihlava, HR Manager of YTK, in March that very soon we will need many new employees. The YTK staff of some 150 people is of very permanent nature – the longest employments have lasted for around thirty years – so only 5–10 new employees are recruited per year.
YTK makes it easier to apply for daily allowance
General unemployment fund YTK has revised the applying for daily allowance in such a way that the salary information can be retrieved from the Incomes Register already in the application phase. That will speed up the processing and relieve the congestion of applications.
