Futurice's working culture from the POV of a new employee
Self-organizing is one of the most sought-after cultural elements in a contemporary organization. However, very few accounts discuss the anxiety that the characteristics and features of an autonomous organization can cause employees. When successful, an autonomous organization is a motivating place to work, and one that helps foster the employees’ mental capabilities. However, it can also appear very different from what was originally intended.
We have decided to publish the culture audit that was submitted to the 2013 Great Place to Work survey, which resulted in our second #1 European workplace position.
How does Wärtsilä react to digitalization? How does a world leading engine company tackle the intangible and rapid software culture? The data and software driven world changes very fast.

With the right tools they can focus on getting results, react to changes, and be innovative. At Wärtsilä, the tools and methodology is Lean Service Creation.

We believe that every single company, in all industries, can have employees that enjoy coming to work every day.
The crazy days of the dot-com bubble have been a thing of the past for a while now. By some eyewitness accounts it seems to be a good thing. But that doesn’t mean that this industry has got completely dull. Nor does it mean that everything happening today inside Futurice offices could be described as “ordinary”.
Design Thinking has for years been a regular feature at countless conferences. It has been referenced in even more articles and books. Corporate employees have gone through days and days of training in the discipline – everyone from R&D and IT to marketing and sales were converted.
