Proekspert recognized for remote and flexible work environment
For the second period running, the Smartwork Association has awarded Proekspert the Remote Working Badge.
The award by the NGO, Smartwork Association, is recognition of Proekspert’s core-level commitment to flexible work arrangements that suit both individuals and entire teams, keeping a proper balance between work and private life. Proekspert’s working practice of opening an office in any city where at least five employees request it is one of its commitments to flexibility. In addition to its offices in Tallinn, Tartu, Kuressaare, and Pärnu, the company has tens of home offices around the world.
“We’re very pleased by this recognition,” says Tiina Sakkos, Proekspert’s Chief Culture and HR Officer. “Employees at Proekspert have always had the opportunity to work remotely, but few of us have preferred it in the past. Currently, of course, teleworking is the norm at Proekspert. So, supporting a flexible work arrangement is just business as usual for us.“
“Our experience shows that flexibility fosters productivity and mental well-being,” says Sakkos. “Above all, employees know they’re valued, and we’ll continue to create a work environment, whether at home or the office, that keeps people both healthy and happy.”
