We are a part of Staffbase

In the beginning of 2022 we joined forces with another employee communications pioneer, Staffbase. Together we are on a quest to make employee communications management tools so you can focus on the most important part of communications- enhancing your culture, creating inclusivity, and altogether better workday experience supported by the best digital tools out there outside and inside of Microsoft!

We have offices in Finland, Poland, and Australia, but as true digital nomads are spread all over having experts working also in Sweden, Belgium, Germany, and the UK – to mention a few! Now with Staffbase even more extensively in Germany and Canada.
