Meet our new colleague, Sonja Korhonen

Sonja joined VALOR Partners in November 2021. Before joining VALOR, she worked as a consultant at Nordic Healthcare Group and has several years’ experience in healthcare and social care industry management consulting. Sonja has broad experience of the healthcare and social care industry from numerous projects for both private and public sector clients.

Outside office hours, Sonja keeps active by participating in several sports and yoga, and spending time outdoors. To relax, she also enjoys baking and spending time with friends and family.

We asked Sonja about her first impressions of VALOR and her expectations for the coming year.

What have your first impressions of VALOR been like?

The VALOR team seems highly motivated by their work, and multiple different areas of expertise lie within the company. There’s clearly a low-hierarchy culture, which I hope will contribute both to a positive work environment and the opportunity to grow professionally.

Everyone in the VALOR team has been welcoming. I’ve already had the chance to get to know many of my new colleagues while mountain biking, doing aerial yoga and on a company trip abroad.

What are your expectations for 2022?

Most of all, I’m looking forward to interesting and diverse client projects. Especially in the healthcare and social care industry, the ongoing reform in Finland has brought challenges and opportunities for both the public and private sectors. I’m excited to work alongside our clients in solving these timely and important issues. On the other hand, I’m also looking forward to getting to know the VALOR team and company culture better in the coming months.
