HR Approach

We believe that exceptional results are achieved by inspirational leadership based on mutual understanding and appreciation.

SSF has received recognition for our personnel management in “Vuoden Henkilöstöteko” competition organized by The Finnish Association for Human Resources Management – HENRY ry.

We believe that exceptional results are achieved by inspirational leadership based on mutual understanding and appreciation. We listen and respect individuals – and this respect is what enables our employees to make worthwhile contributions to any task at hand. After all, it is the daily effort of people that gets the work done.

SSF has a truly multicultural work environment with employees from fifteen different countries, and with a third of our staff being women we can proudly say that SSF provides equal opportunities for everyone. Our staff strives for excellence and to be best possible experts – a third of the staff has a doctoral degree. We hire technically capable, intelligent people who can take responsibility and deliver in demanding customer projects.

We trust in honest and truthful communication, whether it is internal or external. It is important to hear people’s opinions, give them responsibility, and let them decide and use their skills to their best extent. At the same time no one should be afraid to ask for help from their colleagues. This is what our values integrity, excellence and enthusiasm stand for.

This approach is proven to be fruitful. These our quotes from our employee satisfaction survey, that is conducted on a yearly basis:

“Management overall is excellent. Employees are listened to and it is very easy to approach management when issues arise. People are extremely smart by a huge cap comparing to any other place I’ve seen or heard.”
