YIT outsourcing its project accommodation to Forenom
YIT is outsourcing its project accommodation services to Forenom – a company specialised in accommodation solutions for mobile workforce. In the business transfer, Forenom will take control of YIT’s current housing stock for project accommodation and its management personnel. This innovative partnership is mutually beneficial and allows YIT to focus on its core competence.
YIT is in constant need of housing services for its project teams during construction projects. Comfortable stay in a new project location guarantees efficiency at work, occupational safety and the overall well-being of the employees. Until now, YIT has been taking care of its project accommodation partly by using its own housing stock and partly by using service providers, such as Forenom.
Forenom’s home-like apartments have been specially designed keeping in mind the daily needs of mobile employees. The company is excited to provide accommodation services to the YIT project teams and to strengthen its ongoing partnership with the largest construction and urban development company in Finland.
“We are very pleased about the confidence shown by our valued customer. Our goal is to make sure that the YIT employees will be even happier with their housing arrangements than before. I see this new partnership as a result of the success of our long-term service development. It also highlights the importance of flexible housing services in the market. We are glad to cooperate with YIT and to be part of the success story of the Finnish construction industry by offering comfortable housing and a good night’s sleep, so that YIT’s employees can do their best in their challenging projects”, says Johanna Ali, Country Director for Forenom Finland.
YIT considers outsourcing the project accommodation services beneficial, because it is transparent, straightforward and flexible, since Forenom takes care of the housing stock and reporting. Forenom and YIT believe that strengthening the cooperation also reflects positively on the job satisfaction of the employees using the accommodation services.
“Outsourcing project accommodation is a sensible and cost-effective solution on our quest towards achieving our goals. We have been using Forenom’s services for a long time, and we are confident that, with Forenom, we can provide our employees with comfortable project accommodation. This will help us ensure excellent work quality, efficiency, safety, and employee satisfaction. We are happy to hand over the accommodation services to the professionals so that we can focus on our own core competence”, says Juhani Nummi, Executive Vice President, Operations Development at YIT.
