Finnish company Vincit Oy wants its employees to achieve their dreams. Johanna Pystynen, head of people operations, works to make this utopian ideal possible.
She achieved this goal by creating a human resources department at Vincit Oy, a software company, that facilitates conversations between employees and managers about their passions —everything from travel to video game programming — and figures out how those dreams can be achieved through flexible scheduling.
Pystynen, 35, ensures that the company is doing more than molding well-rounded employees by helping execute Vincit Oy’s “money back guarantee” to clients. Those not satisfied with the results of the software receive a full refund. As a result, the staff remains motivated to produce high-quality work.
Her combined efforts have helped Vincit Oy win Finland’s Best Place to Work award in 2014 and 2015.
