Every day, millions commute back and forth into their workplace. The chance to do things differently is an idealistic dream for many – but in Finland it is reality.
The Nordic nation has embraced agile working patterns for years. It’s a style of work well suited to the country’s deep-rooted culture of trust, equality and pragmatism, and 9 out of 10 companies now offer flexible-working conditions.
Finland is a small forest-packed country with a sparsely dispersed population of just 5.5 million. It is a major European tech hub which is a magnet for successful IT firms, gaming start-ups and digital financial services.
The Finns recognise that not everyone wants to live in a big city where tech headquarters are traditionally located, but it's wasteful not to utilise the talent living further afield. Greater access to Wi-Fi and cloud-based comms have created new ways of working, but attitudes to alternative work arrangements and the growth of temporary workspaces have also helped.
“I feel as the session has taken place two days before my first trip to China that this course will be extremely beneficial and help to ensure that I can create a good impression and avoid faux pas.”
