"The cooperation we are now embarking on with Aalto EE, represents a major investment in collaboration at Mehiläinen. This partnership will enable management training that helps us to achieve Mehiläinen’s quality and growth goals, and our aim of becoming the best place to work in the social and healthcare sector,” says Janne-Olli Järvenpää, CEO of Mehiläinen.

"Our experience has shown that employee and customer satisfaction are intertwined. The key factor contributing to employee satisfaction tends to be the manager of the unit in question. Our professional staff deserves a good leadership; that is why we have decided to make this major investment in developing the competences and skills off our managers," explains Janne-Olli Järvenpää.

"Mehiläinen is making on the Finnish scale a major investment in leadership development. A unified language and code can be ensured by reaching out to hundreds of managers through a single program. This will enable effective management of the growing pains caused by rapid expansion. The key issue is that Mehiläinen’s senior management is extremely committed to the program," says Dr. Pekka Mattila, Group Managing Director of Aalto EE and Professor of Practice at Aalto University School of Business.

Aalto EE has trained thousands of doctors, executives and managers in various public and private health care organizations, for example through Leadership in Healthcare program (Johtaminen terveydenhuollossa), Aalto EMBA, Aalto MBA and Aalto JOKO® programs.
