About Adiente

Adiente is a personnel services agency specializing in middle management level recruitment, HR consulting and staffing. Our focus is on recruiting more experienced people for key positions and managerial posts at our client companies, but we are also on the look for future talent, i.e. students, recently graduated and young professionals with 5-10 years of experience. DISC-based team development is also one of our key competencies.

Adiente provides the following services:

  • Search-and-select hybrid recruitment: combined benefits of a targeted recruitment search and a broader recruitment campaign
  • Seek-and-retain recruitment: the right match for improved talent retention
  • Consulting: management-level HR-related sparring and consulting
  • Extended DISC and CUT-E analyses: individual candidate assessments and team reviews
  • Team development: improved dynamics for improved business results
  • Temporary staffing: resourcing solutions for varying business situations

When recruiting, we put emphasis on getting to know both the recruiting client and the candidates. Alongside the necessary expertise, we underline the candidate’s fit to the company, its people and culture for a great match and smooth collaboration from the get-go.

The DISC-based team trainings are tailored to the client’s needs and can focus on e.g. developing the team’s sales skills or overall dynamics. The trainings increase the participants’ understanding of collaboration between people, and lead to better business results and improved work satisfaction when the findings are put into action.

Satisfied clients and successful long-term recruitments are our most important goals. With us you will find a HR partnership based on quality, reliability, speed and flexibility.

We comply with the collective labour agreements

Adiente has been a member of the Finnish Private Employment Agencies’ Association, and via that a member of the Confederation of Finnish Industries EK, as well as The World Employment Confederation,  since the start in 2005. We comply with the General Terms and Conditions for the temporary agency work industry and the General Terms and Conditions for recruitment within the temporary agency work sector. Adiente has also been an authorized staffing company since 2011.

General Terms and Conditions for the temporary agency work industry
The Finnish Private Employment Agencies’ Association, HPL, has developed general terms and conditions for recruitments and staffing, that exist to make responsibilities and rules clear to all parties. The terms take into account especially the rights of the employees and the job seekers.

The General Terms and Conditions regarding the service in question are intended to be attached to contracts concluded between a private employment agency and its client company. The general terms and conditions for staffing can be found here, and the general terms and conditions for recruitments, here.

The collective labor agreement
The Finnish Private Employment Agencies’ Association, HPL, has also developed a collective labor agreement, which is applied on employees working in the office of the recruitment – and staffing companies themselves, and also on the employees that work for the staffing companies, but in their customers offices. The labor agreement can be found here.


Authorization

The members of the Finnish Private Employment Agencies’ Association want to highlight that they work with ethics and follow the rules and regulations and abide to the Finnish law. Since there is, and always has been, less honest companies in this sector, there has emerged a need to be able to identify those companies that act honestly and reliably on the market.

The authorization process underlines the importance of taking care of the duties of an employer and to abide to the General terms and conditions and to the Collective labor agreement.

There are strict rules to achieve authorization and authorized companies are monitored and checked regularly.

Adiente is an authorized staffing company since 3.2.2011.
