The Great Place to Work survey provided Softability with valuable information on employee views and development targets. The certificate is a great indication that we are doing right things at Softability. “Although I claim to have a pretty good idea on how things are going, there’s of course always great anticipation and a bit of anxiety in receiving the results. It is therefore relieving to find out that the gut-feeling was about correct. We know we’re on the right track when 95 percent of the employees say that overall, Softability is a great place to work and they look forward to coming to work and want to work here for a long time. Reading through the open answers makes me feel grateful for the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of people.” says Repo.
