Norian have sold its payroll business in Finland to Azets

Outsourcing of payroll and HR services is constantly increasing in Finland, both in the private and public sectors, regardless of the size of companies and organizations. To combine the Payroll and travel & expense in Norian and Azets we believe we can offer our customer better services in the future.

“Norian will in the future focus on F&A services in Finland based on its near shore delivery model, local Finnish expertise and leading provider of RPA solutions. This is also the fundament for Norian deliveries in the other Nordic countries as well as for our operations in Poland, Lithuania and Germany”, says Knut Anders Opstad, CEO at Norian Group.

“Norian’s payroll and travel & expense business complements Azets service offering in Finland. Both Azets and Norian are focusing on delivering high quality and automated services utilizing modern technology and RPA solutions. Through this acquisition, we are also able to offer our customers even broader nearshoring solutions”, says Ulla Nikkanen, Director of Payroll & HR BPO at Azets.

As a result customer contracts for payroll services and personnel working for Norian’s payroll business will be transferred to Azets in Jyväskylä and Tallinn.
