Eltel and Elisa strengthen co-operation – 19 persons transferred from PPO to Eltel

As a part of arrangement between the Finnish teleoperator Elisa and PPO Yhtiöt, 19 persons from PPO production have been transferred to Eltel’s Mobile business unit. Employees will keep their existing employment contracts when joining Eltel.

Employees transferring to Eltel have been satisfied with the decision. “ Amongst the alternatives, which were discussed, Eltel was clearly the most pleasant one, told PPO union representative Kimmo Marjakangas. Eltel is a big and well operating company and it offers new possibilities for the future.”

After the arrangement Elisa’s operational model and processes will be taken in production.“Elisa has a long and good co-operation with Eltel nationally and we chose Eltel as a partner also in PPO’s geographical area of operations” tells CEO of PPO Yhtiöt, Director Ari Punkkinen at Elisa.

In Mobile business the employees will perform device installation and maintenance tasks. In Fixed telecom they will have planning and documentation duties as well as field works.

“This deal will strengthen Eltel’s regional position and also nationwide role as Elisa’s service partner. It also enables Eltel to unify and rationalize its own processes with Elisa”, says Director Janne Kallionpää at Eltel.

New Employees have joined Eltel on 1.11.2013.
