On 22 May, Hotel Almond in Gdańsk hosted the second conference of the third edition of the BBS Tour: Polska. The Poland-wide event was organised by Fundacja Pro Progressio with Torus in both the sponsor and participant role.
For years, the Scandinavian business model has attracted a lot of attention. Harmony at work, economic and ergonomic business environment, workload optimisation, caring for employer’s image and high standards are but a fraction of the features that make Nordic companies an example to follow.
In Poland, Scandinavian companies are growing rapidly and provide some of the most attractive workplaces. It is therefore no wonder that this business model was on the agenda of this year’s BSS Tour. Together with the Scandinavian-Polish Chamber of Commerce, the BSS Tour provided a series of roadshows presenting several case studies across different business areas. The event also served as an opportunity to show off Tricity as the place to develop Scandinavian investments in Poland. The urban partner of the event was the agency Invest in Pomerania. Torus served as one of the sponsors, with our Leasing Director Marcin Piątkowski sharing his experience with the attendees of what it’s like working with Scandinavian companies.
In his presentation, Piątkowski touched on several criteria related to choosing and equipping an office depending on specific corporate needs. He discussed key factors that influence the choice of office location (including, but not limited to: what the desired city and country have to offer, potential of the local job market and available office space) and highlighted some ongoing demographic changes (the decreasing population in Europe and increasing population in North America). He also covered the important subject of what influences job candidates’ decision of selecting their future employer – these increasingly essential factors being the quality of office space, office location (including connections to roads and public transport) and the choice in accompanying retail shops and services. Piątkowski compared the above selection criteria with current investments offered by Torus, underlining their other advantages, such as office arrangement flexibility and Torus’ strength on the market.
