Gislen Software’s Secret to Success: A Unique Work Culture

We strongly believe that our secret to success has been its unique work culture. Gislen Software is all about teamwork. At Gislen Software we empower our employees to communicate directly with clients, to make decisions independently and to support their peers. We train our employees to work successfully across cultural barriers. Gislen Software has a very low employee attrition rate and today, some employees are also shareholders. The Managing Director Mr Mikael Gislén stated in his anniversary speech

“Together, we have made Gislen Software a success. Together, we have made it possible to celebrate our twenty-first milestone anniversary. Together we received the best ever customer ratings!”

The company’s success was recently measured with top scores in a market survey conducted by TNS. He further stated

“We have, in the last years moved from being an average company to one which constantly exceeds our client’s expectations”.

“While the growth our company has experienced over the years is motivating, the real measure of success is how our staff has expanded and evolved their skill-sets and our exceptionally low attrition rate.

While Gislen Software is dedicated to producing the highest quality of work for its clients, the management team always finds time for fun and team building as part of the company’s Employee Health program. In the last year the company conducted a Table Tennis tournament, a Carom board tournament and employees participated in 5 marathons. Gislen Software has a strong CSR program.
