The future of buildings is empathic

Tieto Empathic Building

Improving employee well-being, happiness and performance

The Circle of good

Tieto Empathic Building is a human-centric digital service and design platform that focuses on improving employee well-being, happiness and increasing individual performance by solving end-user problems.

By automating time-consuming and non-productive tasks of communication and administration, it enables and encourages your employees to straight-forward human interaction, collaboration and co-innovation.

Bridging the gap between workspace and success

Bridge the gap

Tieto Empathic Building includes all the necessary tools for developing human-centric workspace design: It gives an instant view on, not only the physical space and supporting technology within, but also work content and issues affecting work culture.

It helps in bridging the gap between building utilization and employee satisfaction – with the selected KPI’s and data to prove it. This in turn accelerates the transformation from traditional office-based activity towards intuitive, agile and efficient activity-based working.
