Many employees work best without the constraints of time and location, and more companies want to make the shift towards meeting the needs of this New Work. Productive and creative work requires quality resources, facilities and networks. New Work means more than simply working from home; it needs a connected infrastructure to promote this new culture of working. Tampere already has many of the elements & buildings sites needed. Let’s connect the dots and create a networked ecosystem that connects the existing infrastructure to let employees work to their full potential.
