When the pandemic hit, like many others, we started working remotely. It worked out nicely! So we continued doing it, and since then we’re a remote-first company. Now, it plays even less difference than earlier from where our consultants chose to work. Currently, our consultants live and work in Blekinge, Skåne, Halland and Stockholm in Sweden. But we are open to recruiting from virtually anywhere. Of course, we make sure everyone has appropriately equipped home offices.
Working from different locations should not affect the team's spirit; we meet often! We probably meet each other more often than the consultants in many classic companies where the consultants work from the customers' office. In most assignments, at least two of us collaborate to improve learning and impact and to have more fun.
Since we try to keep our carbon footprint small, we don't travel to exotic places like we used to. But we have found that there are great ways to meet for creative, collaborative and fun events close to home. We do it often, and it is always appreciated.
