Highlights of the year: How we worked smarter together

Solving complex challenges and moving toward the world we want to see takes more than solitary heroes; it demands a collective effort. That's why we at Etteplan take great pride in working smarter together. "Smarter Together" was not only one of our new values launched in 2024, but it was also a recurring theme in our work throughout 2023. Read further to learn how we worked smarter together last year. 

Together with our customers, we have initiated smarter work methods to enhance cost efficiency and flexibility for business, while enabling greater well-being and competence development for individuals. Central to this service solution is the transfer of industry specific expertise from our customers to Etteplan. Our Managed Service Model ensures transparent task management, freeing our customers’ resources for new responsibilities. This enables ongoing development, leveraging past insight and experience. By combining industry know-how with our technology and service expertise, we drive both business and personal growth. Success in our established outsourcing model is built upon open-minded and committed people.

Our global footprint leads us to expand our horizons through collaboration with talented teams or by pursuing a career abroad, where our expertise serves diverse customers. Engaging in customer assignments is a common path to gain international experience, with durations ranging from a few weeks to several years. Well-established global mobility processes, with support from both the team and managers, are crucial. Smooth cooperation and robust resources facilitate transitions, ensuring continuous connection. Speaking from experience, I highly recommend seizing such opportunities for rewarding and enlightening experiences. At Etteplan, the world is our workplace, offering a dynamic journey toward a truly global career.

In August 2023, we launched our Artificial Intelligence (AI) Program with the vision of transforming our business and services with the power of artificial intelligence. The AI Program’s expert team collaborates closely with all company departments to identify and implement AI solutions, aiming to improve efficiency, quality, and customer satisfaction. In the fall, we conducted an employee survey to collect ideas and feedback on how AI could change the way we work in the future. We were thrilled with the number of great ideas we received and are currently assessing them. By fostering a culture of idea-sharing and working smarter together, we aim to drive innovation and optimize AI utilization in our daily operations.

One of the highlights of the year was the annual Finnish Comms Awards where we, together with our agency partner Netprofile, received recognition in the B2B communication category for our campaign “Etteplan sets the direction for the green transition of industry.” The collaborative effort involved Marketing, and our Software and Embedded Solutions, and Engineering Solutions service areas. The campaign featured content on themes such as Green Design, Electrification, and Industry 5.0. The jury praised the campaign for making complex subject matter accessible through storytelling. The campaign exemplifies our transition from an engineering company to a multitalented technology services company, showcasing our ability to work smarter together.
