BTR accounting and payroll services among Sweden´s Best Workplaces 2015
On March 19, BTR was announced one of Sweden’s best companies to work for by Great Place to Work ® Sweden.
(Stockholm, Sweden, March 19, 2015) Today the world renowned research and consulting firm Great Place To Work ® announced Sweden’s Best Workplaces and BTR was among the 15 listed companies in their category. The key to this year’s success is BTR’s leadership and transparency; but the winning formula for this was established just last year.
”In 2013 we participated for the first time in Great Place To Work ® survey. From that survey it became very visible that we had a lack of leadership within the company. Early 2014 we started to recruit a new management team with the right attitude and same innovative spirit that I have,” said Lena Johansson, founder and CEO. ”It is of course a pleasure to see what we have achieved in such short time as a team.”
Satisfied, committed employees are essential for our long-term success, and BTR will continue work for satisfied, committed employees and continue to build a culture of strong trust. Striving to maintain and achieve even better results together as a winning team.
”BTR has received very good reviews from their employees. With a culture of trust , combined with transparent information and a listening leadership, we are pleased to present BTR as one of the Best Workplaces in Sweden 2015″, said Maria Grudén, CEO of Great Place To Work ®
Here is what some of the employees had to say about why the organization is a great workplace:
”The authentic approach to new employees, the homey feeling. That is what comes to mind first.”
”The decision making is very effective. The office environment is so far from open plan you can get and the management team also value ”softer qualities.”
BTR was founded by Lena Johansson 1989 as a sole trade company with only one client. Today BTR have 35 consultants, serving around 300 clients around the world with HR, payroll, accounting and tax compliance.
The company is located in central Stockholm, Grev Turegatan 21, were it has been located since 2002.
We want to make a difference
We want to contribute to make the world a better place to live and to make our company a great place to work. That´s why we decided to launch the BTR Corporate Social Responsibility project (BTRCSR) consisting of four project teams, each focusing on one specific area:
In order for our staff to enjoy working for BTR and to attract and maintain new productive coworkers we joined the Great Place To Work international competition in which companies compete against each other at creating and maintaining the most employee friendly working environment.
We have now conducted two separate employee surveys and from the insights gained from these we launched another four (development) projects:
- Leadership development
- Interdepartmental cooperation
- Creating a better balance between work and free time
- Establishing a transparent career system
This is why I launched the BTRCSR
We live in an environment characterized by a high degree of psychosocial demands experienced as a lack of time and pressure to perform and achieve. This makes it more difficult for us to care and give attention to others and our environment. I therefore decided that I wanted to give my staff a chance to work together on office time to make a real beneficial impact on our environment, our local community and our more distant neighbors in other parts of the world. We can all give something – and we at BTR now put in 120 hours a year to make the world a better place!
This is why I launched this project and why I now also hope and wish that we might inspire other companies to do the same.
Why don´t you join us!
