Feel the values!

By Irma Hyvönen on Feb 13, 2020 11:16:02 AM

Benemen values presented to employees

When your business is growing, the number of staff is increasing and operations and core business models figured out, it is time to focus on spirit, cohesion and values among people. Feeling is important in a growth company.

We had just perfect values before, very professional and valid with every perspective. But no one actually knew them, and somehow, they did not feel right anymore. I don’t know how they were chosen at the time, probably family-based entrepreneurs and a handful of staff wrote them down just because all other companies had theirs on their web sites. There is nothing wrong with that, I am sure those values reflected business needs and those people and their actions at the time. New hires were mainly picked out from the owner’s network and naturally qualified with mutual values too. So, there is no problem at all.

For the last 220 days I have gone through the biggest change in my career so far. For the first time after my studies I am working in a rapidly growing SME. For more than once, I have had to answer questions from people who doubted whether it was worth leaving a big corporation with its good benefits and move on to a company with less than a hundred employees. I haven’t had regrets for one moment. At the same time, I hope that also others would grab a similar opportunity if they have the chance to be part of a well-managed growth company. I think there are three reasons for this:

How did I end up here? My journey in Iceland started many years ago, and the people who know me also know that this is a place I keep coming back to.
