Everything at Saalasti is compared to our Values. At Saalasti we treasure the values of a family business. Long-term stability and wellbeing at work are more important for us than uncontrolled growth. This is something that our employees appreciate and why we actually grow and generate wellbeing.
Our work has a purpose: sustainability. We want to take part in sustainable development. We also want to be a better workplace. Every day. We believe that great things happen when people with similar values work together in an innovative organization and have real influence on what they do at work.
We want to be among the best workplaces in Finland. Therefore, we take part in Great Place To Work® program and want to achieve a nomination among the very best. An ambitious goal, yes, for a manufacturing company, and we are not there yet. But we are already very good and improve every day.
