SOLUTION FOR TODAY’S EMPLOYMENT CHALLENGES
Work Pilots Oy was founded in the fall of 2015 by Eija Kiviranta and Jari Raitanen, based on the insights, vision and desire to provide more low threshold work opportunities to young people. Our mission is to be able to give the possibility of work experience to anyone who needs or wants it.
We also want to make the busy day-to-day lives of households and businesses a bit easier by finding them the best workers available, at the right time and without unnecessary bureaucratic hassles.
You can sign up and search for opportunities or find help to your errands.
WORK PILOTS IS BORN IN THE MIDDLE OF BIG CHANGE IN WORKING LIFE
As a result of the digitalisation and globalization of the economy the number of unemployed is growing, and many people, especially young people, are increasingly left with no work experience and an empty CV. The longer we are apart from working life, the more easily we stray away from our normal life and society. As a result of this transition more and more people must find other options to employ themselves.
On the other hand, there are people whose everyday lives would be easier with the delegation of small jobs. The problem occurs where the job and the worker meet. Especially, the current models of short-term work are too cumbersome and bureaucratic.
Most of us, however, have the desire and ability to be involved, if only given the chance. New business models, digitalisation of mobility enable new bold experiments also at work.
Our purpose is to solve youth unemployment – one gig at a time!
THE BACKGROUND OF WORK PILOTS
The idea of Work Pilots was born in 2015. We believe in the power of cooperation, and thus a wide range of companies, public sector operators, young people and a number of other private individuals have been included in our application design and development.
The common goal of our journey together has been to create an easy-to-use, feature-rich and secure mobile application, which would make the provision and accepting of tasks easier than ever.
Strong values and responsibility has been at the center of our operations from the beginning. As we move towards our goal we make sure that with every step we take, all the parties involved are happy and receive what they deserve. We have also made specific efforts in our information security and risk management so that using Work Pilots would be as safe as possible.
The smashing team behind us
Our team has solid experience with entrepreneurship, service development and international business. The inclusion of ecosystems and strategic business management are some of our particular strengths.
As our partner in the technical development of risk management, payment service and the application we have a team of experienced developers and security experts.
Our extensive and potent networks and co-operation models are what is going to drive Work Pilots forward. Our calling is to solve societal problems in new and unconventional ways. We are connected by our passion to help people to move, especially the young, into working life.
