Creating an encouraging and flexible environment with the Genuine Method of Working
At the end of 2014, DNA employed some 1,700 top professionals. A motivated and professional workforce is of primary importance to DNA. We are committed to fostering employee well-being and providing our employees with an encouraging working environment, which supports personal and career development. Working at DNA is based on fairness, and appreciation and respect for others.
DNA’s Genuine Method of Working is based on trust and flexibility, and has proved very successful. Using mobile workstations, the employees decide independently where they work without discussing this with their supervisor. The Genuine Method of Working changes not only the working environment but also the working culture, and DNA’s employees have welcomed this change enthusiastically.
Our new energy-efficient and flexible work environment enables us to be innovative in versatile and responsible ways. Improved comfort has been reflected in the positive development of employee satisfaction, as measured by our surveys, and reduced levels of emissions from work-related travel.
Diversity is a resource for us
We value diversity. Each DNA employee has the right to a safe working environment that fosters wellbeing. DNA was among the first signatories of the diversity commitment with 17 other companies at the event organised by the Finnish Corporate Responsibility Network FIBS to mark the launch of the Diversity Charter Finland.
Different aspects of diversity, such as inclusiveness and commitment, equality and leveraging different types of skill sets, are already part of DNA’s everyday working and leadership practices.
A team of top experts
DNA’s human resources management aims to establish a team of top experts at DNA, so that each and every task is performed by a dedicated and qualified person. This is the foundation for DNA’s competitiveness. DNA aims to be one of the most desired employers in Finland.
Leadership that is based on DNA’s values together with a boldly different corporate culture create competitive advantage in the constantly evolving industry. Employee satisfaction amidst the changes is one key indicator that DNA is committed to.
DNA’s employee leadership emphasises the importance of competence, high standards of customer service, commitment to life-long learning, and boldness. Leadership is based on transparency and trust at all levels of the organisation.
Guiding our operations with ethical principles
DNA's ethical principles guide our work. For us, good work means non-discrimination and equal opportunities, among others.
Employee health and wellbeing are promoted through a number of means, such as paying attention to health and safety at work, providing access to a high-quality occupational health scheme that goes beyond the regulatory obligations, ensuring continuous professional development, and focusing on well-being at work.
