Recommend membership

The more members you recruit, the more you’ll earn!

Recommend PAM membership to your friends. When your friend joins, you’ll receive a reward while your friend will have better employment security.

You’ll receive an S Group gift card worth €250 when you recruit 5 new members (not applicable to student members)! You’ll even be rewarded for recruiting just a single new member – in this case, an S Group gift card worth €10 will come your way!

The more members you recruit, the more you’ll earn! You’ll receive an gift card worth €500 for 10 members, €750 for 15 members, etc.

Rewards for recruiting student members are slightly different.

Employee representatives will be rewarded in a slightly different way. If you are an employee representative, read more here.

Gift cards and taxation

PAM will notify the tax authorities of all gift cards that you have earned. As per the decision issued by the Finnish Tax Administration, gift cards are liable to taxation.

Home delivery of gift cards

Your gift cards will be posted to your home address as a registered letter, which means that you’ll need to collect them from your post office when you receive a notification at your home address.

Gift cards will be delivered with an approximate delay of 5 weeks from the end of each three-month member recruitment period. In practical terms, this means that gift cards for members recruited during the first quarter will arrive in early May, while gift cards for the second, third and fourth quarters will be delivered in early August, early November and early February, respectively.

Here’s what to do when recommending membership:

  • Enter your own name and membership number or date of birth in the ‘Membership was recommended by’ section or ask the friend who is joining to fill in your details. This is crucial, because missing recruiter entries or undelivered admission forms will not be investigated afterwards. If you send a postcard or an e-mail to your friend through the recommendation site, your details will automatically be entered on the admission form.
  • If you use printed admission forms when recommending membership, it’s a good idea to type the same details into the online admission form (pam.fi/join). This then submits the admission form immediately to PAM and transfers the recruiter’s (i.e. your own) details automatically to the Membership Register. If you type in the recruitment details online, you don’t have to send the printed admission forms to PAM.
