Global from day 1

HMD Global was established in late 2016 as a new home for Nokia mobile phones. The operations, organization and business network were to be global from Day 1. HMD Global needed fit for purpose infrastructure and tools to support the global business and massive onboarding program for a fast and smooth start for their hundreds of newly hired employees.

Enhancing the daily work

HMD Global’s fast-growing organization needed a cloud based, scalable and secure solution for enhancing each employees’ daily work with streamlined collaboration tools, clear information handling processes and organization-wide information sharing, especially for onboarding new employees starting on Day 1 and ensuring a smooth transition to HMD Global working culture.

”Co-operation with HiQ was easy and our business got the service we needed to enable a fast start for the company.”
