I am happy and proud to announce that Centiro was announced on the Best Workplaces in Europe 2020-list for the tenth year! The prize was awarded by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.
We have previously received the prestigious title, Great Place to Work Legend™ for our dedicated and long-term approach to its workplace culture efforts. Centiro’s conscious efforts relating to culture and leadership, and our focus on people have resulted in high rankings in Sweden as well as Europe since 2010.
The fact that Centiro placed on the Best Workplaces in Europe-list again and again, is a true testament to how we practice and live our culture every day. If there ever was only one quality to define the Centiro culture, it would be Relaxed Seriousness. It’s a razor-sharp aptitude for problem solving, combined with a personal and relaxed touch. That’s what a high-performing organization is about – a team of committed people acting with equal parts heart, mind and backbone.
Centiro has been a proponent of self-governing teams for a long while. This approach utilizes the drive and potential of each employee and allows many decisions to be made by the employees themselves. The result is sustainable growth – We currently employ just shy of 400 people in six countries and continues to enjoy growth averaging 30 percent per annum. Financial results and growth have a clear correlation with corporate culture strategies and the ability to keep up with changes in the market. Centiro sees a colleague as a whole and values long-term relationships with colleagues, customers, and partners. These are some of the common denominators for the workplaces around the world that have been designated as a Great Place to Work®.
The list of Europe's best workplaces is based on the biggest workplace study of its kind in the world. More than 2,800 organizations comprising 1.46 million employees from 19 European countries participated in the study, which is based on feedback from employees and information from senior managers about employee value proposition and company culture. The list identifies those organizations that are best prepared to produce great results and profitable businesses.
