Corporate responsibility at Eezy
Socially responsible innovator of working life
Sustainability at Eezy is focused on social responsibility, which is part of our everyday activities and at the core of our business.
We are one of the largest employers in Finland and respond to the changing needs of working life by providing flexible work opportunities, employment training, summer jobs for young people and integration services for foreigners. In 2021, we strengthened our role in enabling the future and working life of young people through the acquisition of Eezy Valmennuskeskus.
With our renewed strategy, one of our sustainability objectives is to use our services and operations to promote the key factors of successful working life, which we have researched by conducting working life surveys. We have an enormous amount of personnel survey data, which enables us to help our client companies and communities grow and renew as well as develop their management and employee experience.
We offer our white-collar workers the opportunity to exercise and do volunteer work during their working hours. We are the main partner of some of Finland’s largest sports federations – together with them, we advance the exercise activity of the Finnish people.

Equal working life
It is important to Eezy that all people are treated equally in working life, regardless of gender, age, origin, religious beliefs, health, opinions or sexual orientation. Discrimination based on personal characteristics is also prohibited in the equality act. We have an Equality plan set for 2020–2022, defining the responsibilities and targets as well as actions for reaching them.
The plan also takes into account the reconciliation of work and family life. As an employer, we want to support employees’ well-being in a comprehensive way, and we therefore apply, for example, different flexible working time models and remote working possibilities in accordance with the needs of employees’ families in different stages of life.
Work for the environment Eezy has an environmental programme that includes the targets, actions and KPIs for daily environmental work. We take into account environmental risks, develop waste sorting and strive to reduce the amount of waste in all our operations. We continuously develop our business activities into a more ecological direction and strive to reduce our carbon footprint in all business operations.
