The intensification of property use has long been on the agenda of the Finnish property market. However, only now do companies' changed working cultures seem to be leading to significant changes in the effectiveness of space use.
Office space is one of companies' major cost factors. This is highlighted in Finland, where the average space efficiency is 25-30 m2 per employee. The equivalent figure in major European cities is just 15 m2. The difference is due to factors such as one-person "cubicles" remaining the preferred ideal in many organisations in Finland. Now this way of thinking is changing, and in addition to companies, many small municipalities are also trying to increase the amount of mutual space in their office, as well as the number of non-personal work stations.
