Core Values

If you’d like a little more detail about how the company values its employees, and involves them at all levels, take a look at our core values.
  • Quality-focused: we place a big emphasis on quality, in terms of our staff, processes and output.
  • Meritocratic: those who contribute the most are given responsibility and remunerated accordingly – regardless of seniority.
  • Libertarian: employees are given a lot of flexibility and trust, and we’re generally quite relaxed.
  • Inclusive: employees receive a large amount of information about the company, and the management is very transparent. Employees also have a say in company decisions, for example in approving changes to the way bonuses are allocated or how the budget for promoting staff morale is spent. And all employees, from recent recruits to senior management, share the same workspace and enjoy the same perks.
  • Welfare-oriented: we pay close attention to employee welfare and offer our staff a great working environment and working conditions.
  • Aspirational: we encourage employees to strive for continuous improvement, both for Softwire in general and for their individual contribution to its success.
  • Considerate: we want Softwire to have a positive impact on society, and support employees in their efforts to achieve this.
