Meet our GEIST ambassadors
“Our values and culture make us feel like a united company”
“We really appreciate our GEIST values. They mean that we take care of and help each other. At Contrast, employees are listened to and we are good at giving everyone a say in how the culture, workflows, etc. are constructed and how they work. The management has demonstrated that they trust that we all have something to contribute. No matter who you are, your input will be listened to on its merits. This really contributes to feeling like we are a united company. We are good at visiting each other’s ‘islands’ and thereby getting a feel for how the situation looks from where our colleague is sitting. This also allows us to gain a greater understanding of what it will take to solve a task optimally. We do our best to make sure that things all come together as a whole. We have learned how important it is to see things from a different perspective to better understand the big picture and what personality profile we are each basing our actions on.”
”At Contrast, we help each other”
”Contrast invests in its employees. We invest in ensuring that there is a good social life. It is my firm conviction that if you enjoy each other’s company, it becomes easier to work together and new heights can be achieved. I see this as an important thing to prioritise, and it shows that there is a good corporate culture. We have each other’s backs and we support each other’s initiatives. We are curious about the challenges we each face and we are always ready to help each other. Our products move through many departments and phases, and therefore we have to think about things from all angles. What we do needs to make sense and create value for the whole company. Our GEIST culture is energising, it creates joy and it reminds us to celebrate the small successes with each other.”

We solve challenges as a team and we all contribute – and we also know it is important to have fun while we work. We also nurture good and long-term relationships with all of our business partners, including customers and suppliers. We are interested in ensuring that all of our partners succeed. We are curious about new colleagues and business partners so that we can better understand how to strengthen our collaboration and get better results.”
