We are pleased to announce that in the beginning of 2024 the Tietoevry in Latvia Riga team will relocate to a Riga’s greenest office complex Verde.
In 2023, the Latvian branch of Tietoevry will focus on the development of an interior design project, which will be implemented in cooperation with the architectural firm ARHIS ARHITEKTI. As a result, our professionals will bring a flexible and energy-efficient working environment to life in 2024.
“The team of our information technologies and financial experts on an everyday basis develops IT solutions for organizations and improves businesses to promote and create changes for better. At present we lay the foundation for our own growth for better. Moving our office to Verde business centre reflects our future goals and strategy – modern and possibly the best working environment for Tietoevry employees, as well as sustainable, competitive, and innovative business solutions for clients and partners. We see a huge potential in Riga’s quiet centre and Skanste becoming the artery of the information technologies and financial sector in Riga,” underscores Country Manager at Tietoevry Latvia Valērija Vārna.
The new Tietoevry Latvian branch office will have an area of 4500 m2 and is planned to be located on the 4th, 8th, and 9th floors of the Verde B building. The IT company will invest heavily to create an activity-based office that will be enlivened by a flexible working environment with lounges, meeting, and individual work areas to support everyone's working style.
Tietoevry Latvia Facility Manager Inese Plāte notes that over the past years, the functions of offices and workplaces have changed considerably: “We are confident that activity-based office with smart technologies will help to successfully continue our hybrid work model. The main criteria for selecting the new Tietoevry office were energy efficiency of the building, smart office management system and excellent air quality. Also, the green terrace, fast charging facility for electric cars, parking space for bicycles and other facilities are of the same importance, contributing to wellness of our employees and reducing the ecological imprint of our company.”
One of Latvia's ICT export and innovation leaders with more than 1100 employees specialising in the development of various information systems and payment solutions for clients around the world, signed a contract with Class A complex Verde at the end of last year. The reciprocal agreement has thus become the largest office rent deal in Latvia in 2022.
Iveta Lāce, Verde Commercial Director, says: “As Tietoevry arrives in Verde, Skanste – Riga’s newest central business district is even becoming the technology epicentre of the Latvian capital. Now and exactly here such a hub is developing that will promote economic activity and international attractiveness of the city and our country in general. I am truly glad that the development of this innovative company will take place in Verde. At the same time, I would like to note that building B, which is still in construction process, has already been rented by 68%.”
