Working for Creditsafe
The Creditsafe Culture
The Creditsafe culture is unique. Since the Group’s launch in Scandinavia in 1997, a high emphasis has been placed on creating a welcoming environment for exciting hard working individuals and gives them the opportunity to work and grow to the best of their ability.
Creditsafe’s ambition is clear - as Group CEO Cato Syversen has said: “My ambition was to create a workplace where people wanted to come to work on a Monday morning. Not because they needed to, but because they wanted to."
Across Creditsafe we honestly believe that ambition is reflected in our low levels of absenteeism, and staff comments like “We all work hard here – we are all good friends and have loads of fun" In addition our UK business has been recognised as one of the Sunday Times’ 100 Best Companies To Work For in the UK for three years in a row in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
You'll see how that culture comes to life on our "Events" page and you can see our staff below celebrating the company's 15th birthday in Majorca in 2012.
Flat Management Structure
Regardless of organisation charts and reporting lines, Creditsafe always try to operate a flat management structure, free from the hindrance of ‘not being able to speak to a manager directly.’ A strict open door policy is followed and regular meetings not only keep everyone informed but give them a chance to participate.
Training and Personal Development
Personal development is also high on the agenda for Creditsafe with training available for all including:
Vocational training courses
In house induction and on-going training & development
External Training and professional development
And with over 75% of all Creditsafe senior managers having started in the business as Telesales executives the opportunities are clear. Check out “Planning Your Future” for more details.
Communication throughout the business is key at Creditsafe. Regular team meetings and the use of an intranet system provide staff and management plenty of opportunity to interact and communicate freely.
In short, Creditsafe make every effort to involve all employees, because they are integral to the development and success of the company. With a heavy emphasis on sales it’s fair to say that the majority of Creditsafe departments are heavily target focused and as such, the company asks a lot of its staff. However, by creating a fun, friendly, high energy environment with fantastic opportunities for personal growth and advancement Creditsafe hopes to offer much more than ‘just a salary’ in return for employees’ efforts.
