I founded this Company in 1981. I started in Helsinki but as I noticed that our clients were based all over Finland (and still are), I decided that being located in Kuopio made sense.
After 10 years in business, we started business overseas. Our first recruitment for a consultant overseas resulted in 1,643 job applications, which, in turn, resulted in paper constantly running out of the fax machine, complete chaos in the office and an angry postman for many days. We currently have 26 persons working in Finland and 7 persons based overseas.
We help our client companies advance using the “Ruutanaperä” concept – which is a professional and practical school of thought. Consulting assignments can vary in duration starting from 2 consulting training day courses to projects lasting a couple of years. There are some cases where such assignments have lasted for several decades.
My main focus recently has been in company strategy, business planning and developing leadership as well as consulting/training assignments aimed at Board of Directors and managerial levels.
“Ruutanaperä is not a place. It is a state of mind. It describes our hands-on approach to everything”
