VALA Group in a nutshell
Vision of happiness
First things first. Our vision is to be the happiest company in Finland by 2020. The goal is huge and we are aware that we may never reach it. We are also aware that no one can be forced to happiness and not everyone can be happy.
VALA's responsibility as an employer is to do everything in its power to improve the things that it can affect. To mention a few, these things can be affected: meaningfulness of the work, mental and physical wellbeing, balancing work and free time, enabling a culture of self directedness, encouraging self development and warm human relations at the company.
How does the vision of happiness affect on our employees and customers?
To our employees, our vision means that we promise to do everything we can towards our people’s happiness. No doubt, we have very comprehensive benefits and other luxuries, but we believe true workplace happiness comes from the actual work and its meaningfulness. Finding meaningful work for our people is our single most important goal.
To our customers, the vision means that they are number two on our priority list. At first glance, this probably sounds a little harsh, but hear us out! We are certain that our emphasis on employees and our focus towards happiness will indirectly leave all our customers better off.
Firstly, people who feel good about their work and life, perform their work with better quality. Secondly, because VALA people choose their own projects, they are per se in projects where they are highly motivated and thus, feel good. Finally, good company culture which improves itself continuously, keeps its employees satisfied and satisfied people talk about their experiences and recommend the company to others. This way, we get even more first-class experts joining our ranks to offer their expertise to our customers.
