Every year, the Great Place to Work Institute ranks the 100 Best Workplaces in Europe, and while Valamis has appeared in the list for many years now, this is a new record for the company. Last year Valamis ranked 30th. Earlier this year the company was also selected, for the third time in a row, as Finland's 4th greatest place to work.
"During the past year we have targeted our business from IT service business towards the digital transformation of learning and internationalization. This has required a lot of communication, adaptation, learning new things, and new kinds of recruitments from us. It's rewarding to see how well our employees have kept up with all the changes. Also, they do their work with their hearts in it", says Chief Human Resource Officer Maria Vihtkari from Valamis.
Some of the practices and procedures adopted by Valamis create a strong basis for internalizing and receiving changes. The company understands the importance of open communication and gives special attention to employee's input when implementing changes. Valamis also beliefs that work efficiency can be increased by supporting employees in their own development and by strengthening the sense of community inside the organization, for example.
"Valamis encourages you to bring out the best of your authentic self, and as a result, you have great professionals with an amazing synergy with their teammates. Yes, we work hard to accomplish our goals, but also we know how to have fun! Indeed this is a great place to work", says Sales Coordinator Johanna Hiltunen from Valamis.
