Highlights from the Finland Office's Trip to India
Exploring our India office with Sprinters from Finland
This March, after a longer break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Finnish Sprinters finally had the opportunity to visit our colleagues at the India office. The last time we were able to make the trip was over two years ago.
The teams keep in touch daily via video calls and other channels, but there's nothing quite like meeting face-to-face to strengthen bonds and build relationships.
As the Finland team of three -
partner Petri Heino, People Lead Janina Kurki
Team Lead Petra Eloranta
- stepped off the plane and into the bustling city of Vadodara, Gujarat, they were eager to catch up with their Indian colleagues and dive into the work together.
HR Manager Jitendra Pathai
was there to welcome them with developers
Himani Maheta, Dhaval Talpada, Meet Vaishnani, Kamlesh Vadhiya and Hitesh Zala.
Workshopping and onboarding
During the visit, the teams participated in a workshop, onboarded new team members and interviewed new candidates.
"The Indian team greatly enjoyed working and spending time with the Finnish colleagues, it was a pleasant experience. We would like to spend more time with the Finns to understand their work style and expectations more deeply.", says Jitendra.
"There were valuable takeaways for the future, too. One such idea was to prioritize onboarding for new team members to ensure smooth integration and effective collaboration across offices."
