Where academic tradition
meets the exciting future

Telework in Finland

Reima Suomi, Telework in Finland. Journal of Japan Telework Society 1+(1), 44–47, 2012.


This article summarizes the intellectual, practical and academic development of telework in Finland during the last 20 years. It is not based on any own primarily data collection for this article, but rather rests on the long activity of the writer in telework research in Finland. It is summarized that telework has never been a hype in Finland, but that Finns do teleworking rather actively. The whole concept is at risk, as working at home has become a standard way of working for almost all knowledge workers.
