Three main findings of the Biethnic Workplace Adaptation in Finland Research:
Biethnic adults adapt well to the international workplace in Finland from their own perspective and also when they contrast their own adaptation to that of the monoethnic majority in the workplace.
Biethnicity and other factors affect how biethnic adults adapt to the workplace in Finland. Being biethnic gives a unique perspective but personality traits, skills, motivation, individual life circumstances, and most importantly the interplay with others at the workplace play a greater role in the adaptation process.
Many organisations in Finland do not have any measures for facilitating the socio-cultural adaptation of employees by focussing on norms and behavioural skills requirements, though they often have normative systems for inducting new employees by guiding them through work processes, organisational systems, and task requirements.
Biethnic or biracial children are born to parents from different ethnic backgrounds. Only about 2% of the Finnish population of 5.2 million are of foreign origin. Most of the biethnic people in Finland are in their childhood or youth. Research conducted for dissertation at Leicester University, UK.
