DRA was founded 20 years ago

DRA Consulting was founded 20 years ago on 1st September 2002. The goal of the founders, Kaija Korpiaho-Haga, Eeva-Liisa Rahko and Eija Hartikainen, was to create a workplace where people are motivated to achieve top achievements together. The company became a workplace that looked and felt like its owners.

DRA has always wanted to share its expertise and take part in social actions having impact on society. Over the years a telephone service has been established for patients suffering from cancer pain, a drug screening software has been created to identify medication problems in the elderly, and an annual cycling day for the entire work community has been celebrated. Hot topics have been raised in societal debate through ÄLY events and podcasts, and issues close to our heart have been supported with various donations, such as establishment of a professorship in sustainable pharmacy, a grant for pharmacogenomics research and a donation to corona research. Important themes, such as responsibility, climate, well-being and atmosphere, have been taken from words to deeds by setting them as operational employee goals. We have also yearly participated in various collections supporting e.g., victims of Ukraine, women in developing countries, young people, and the Baltic Sea.

We hope that all these actions will generate motivation, creative solutions, joy at work and well-being for others as well. Today we are all celebrating DRA.
