Our CEO Artti Aurasmaa describes the great change of work that took place during the year: “The coronavirus pandemic helped to accelerate the transformation of working life that was already in progress. For a long time, it has been possible to work remotely and this has been normal in many companies, but the pandemic forced the remaining organisations and employees to adopt new ways of working very quickly. We believe that the state of emergency caused by the pandemic will permanently change workplaces and the ways people work. The transition to a hybrid work model, which combines remote working and office working, will accelerate and organisations will need to re-evaluate their workplaces and their lifecycle. New solutions are needed to ensure smooth working and to keep office space costs under control in the midst of the transformation. Therefore, the transformation of work will increase demand for flexible workplace services.”
