Values Based on Nordic Principles

We believe that good and relevant values can help us build a better company. Pretty simple, right? We think so. That’s why, together as a company, we've agreed on a set of core values to help us make sound and swift decisions (and no, that isn’t just marketing jargon).

Our values are based on Norwegian principles. Norway, as with the rest of the Nordics, is a society based on the principles of having the trust and transparency to both take quick and independent decisions and to have fun.

Be your own CEO

Everyone at Unacast can and is expected to take charge of their own situation, and make sure the company as a whole moves forward. Waiting for some feedback? Go get it! Want something done? Do it!

Trust through transparency

Vulnerability at the workplace? We believe in that. More importantly, we practice it. Dare to be vulnerable and show yourself, your team and our partners who you really are. The trust we build through transparency lifts us all higher than we could rise alone.

Have fun. Seriously!

The average person will spend over 90,000 hours of their life at work. Terrifying? Not at all. If those hours are filled with meaning and fun. We believe in building relationships with our coworkers and creating unexpected moments that surprise and delight our team and our partners. Life is short, so we might as well make it a fun ride.
