Employees are the cornerstone of the business

“People are preeminently our most important resource and they mainly define how well we are doing. Everybody knows how big the difference in performance might be if everything is fine or something is bothering you”, says Softability´s CEO Janne Repo. “My job is doing my best to remove those irritations, to bring good feelings and to make sure that every employee in Softability can focus on the reasons why they came to our company in the first place.”

Repo highlights that the work community should be healthy and the working conditions should suit the working needs. ”As one of the most important things I could mention that we maintain all our work tools suitable for the work. We also invest a lot in our work community for example by organizing monthly events for the employees. Also another important thing we have paid a lot of attention to is that employees have a chance to balance work and personal life.”

Softability invests in employees both in present and in future

“My own principle is that everything can be done better and that is why we want to know how our employees feel and make surveys like Great Place to Work. I believe in a logical evolvement where we can systematically piece by piece improve our working environment. The most important aspect is to focus on smaller amounts of things and fix them first instead of trying to fix everything at the same time. In this way things don’t end up unfinished.”

What makes Softability Great Place to Work?

“This is easy to answer – people, of course. The work we are doing is teamwork and that’s why the most important thing is to have a good spirit in a team where collaboration works and people learn from each other. As a company we try to create the best possible circumstances to make this kind of teamwork happen.” says Repo.

“A great workplace doesn’t come by itself, it needs good people around it.”
