This Employee Manifesto has been created by HR-ON’s employees and leadership. It is designed to be a dynamic document, which replaces the traditional employee handbook. The manifest reflects HR-ON’s company mission and vision, as well as the shared values and procedures and policies which outline life as an employee at HR-ON.
Every member of HR-ON has had a hand in the creation of the employee manifesto.
(The word manifesto comes from the Latin word ‘manifestus’, manus: hand)
HR-ON’s internal policies and guidelines regarding, for example, working times, holiday and absence, parental leave, illness, etc., are determined by relevant laws and regulations. Our employee manifesto is a superstructure, which defines HR-ON’s specific approach to the aforementioned topics within the given legal framework.
The current legislation for the labour market is based on the norms and frameworks of the industrial sector, and is therefore not perfectly suited to the needs of a modern IT company, such as HR-ON.
This is why we have defined our own policies and guidelines, which replace notions such as control, time and sanctions with trust and shared values and vision.
We therefore have unlimited and flexible working hours, holiday, child sick days, parental leave, etc. Everything is managed by the individual teams at HR-ON, and there are no set limits to the amount of leave taken for such situations, as long as it is arranged according to our shared mission and values. We call it value-based self-management.
In fact, value-based self-management has already been in practice at HR-ON for several years, as an informal aspect of the corporate culture. With this Employee Manifesto, we formalise this approach and in doing so further define it.
