At Aino, we believe in the power of human capital and the importance of employee sustainability. We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Klas Bonde, the former managing director of IT at Centric Nordic, who shared his experiences and the results achieved through using Aino’s platform.
Klas Bonde, who has successfully grown a knowledge company from 0 to 500 employees, emphasized the importance of employee well-being and motivation. He stated, “Happy and engaged employees are the key to happy customers.” In a consultancy, the people in the organization are the absolute key. Your most valuable assets leave at 5 PM every day and hopefully return to work the following day.
The results speak for themselves. Within the first six months after implementing Aino, Centric was able to lower the sick leave from 5.3 percent down to an all-time low of 3.2 percent. This was achieved during the period where COVID-19 had its peak.
