Etteplan initiates co-operation negotiations due to temporary changes in customer demand caused by the corona virus pandemic. The negotiations and the possible temporary layoffs concern all of Etteplan’s per-sonnel in Finland, altogether some 2, 100 employees. The possible temporary layoffs would last for a maximum period of 90 days.

“Unfortunately the pandemic has temporary impacts on our customers’ business and demand, which is also reflected to Etteplan. Currently the changes in demand are difficult to estimate, but by reorganizing work and using remote work we aim to minimize the possible personnel effects”, says Etteplan’s President and CEO Juha Näkki.
