Better together: Saanio & Riekkola Oy is once again recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Finl

Saanio & Riekkola Oy was recognised as one of the Best Workplaces in Finland – a position the company has held for nine consecutive years. It is a measure of success of the company that, based on the results of The Great Place to Work® employee survey, Saanio & Riekkola Oy as a part of A-Insinöörit Group was recognised as a Best Workplace in Medium Category on February 9, 2017.

Annual survey assesses employees’ experience of the workplace and a workplace culture by measuring the levels of trust and engagement in the organisation. All together 151 Finnish companies with about 48 500 employees participated in the survey.

Saanio & Riekkola Oy is one of the few organisations in Finland that has participated in The Great Place to Work® employee survey meticulously year after year. We have been improving our strategy based on results of the surveys since 2009 when our company participated in the survey for the first time initiated by the personnel.

Over several years, we have defined together what is a good workplace culture. For us it means professional competence, equity, taking care, accepting diversity and being open. By participating in the survey annually, we get a feedback on our workplace culture with the recommendations about which areas may need improvement. The success in this survey is also a sign showing that the choices made in everyday work are right for us.

A long-term success built together as well as a culture of continuous improvement describe very well our way to work with clients. For our clients, we are a partner who helps to become better by working together. Our employees with high job satisfaction are successful in building competent collaborations, long-lasting relationships with clients and strong expertise. Employees in Saanio & Riekkola are fully engaged and committed to their work – not only to workplace.


”Employees are entrusted with responsibility and freedom. Here, the emphasis is being placed on quality. The shared desire to make great work is evident in everything we do.”


”Strong confidence in others’ work. Experienced colleagues want to share their experience and competence with less experienced employees.”


”We have a great team, different but first of all ”good guys”. Everyone is accepted to the team as individual, no one is left as an outsider. A team spirit is very strong.”


”We have different and diverse competence. In the field of nuclear waste management and repository technologies - the best one in the whole world.”


It is important to celebrate a collective success, even during the busiest times. I am very proud and happy that also this year we can celebrate our collective success at a banquet. Many thanks to every employee and client of Saanio & Riekkola for making our working culture better and better every single day – also tomorrow!
