Best Workplace 2022
The title Best Workplace is awarded annually by the research and consultancy firm Great Place To Work on the basis of a comprehensive analysis in the areas of employee satisfaction and employer policy (Trust Index and Culture Audit).
Viisi Hypotheken’s scores in the report are predominantly within the elements of camaraderie, honesty and credibility. “Winning this award for the fourth time in a row is a definite honour,” says Marc-Peter Pijper of Viisi Hypotheken.
“But being first is not our goal. The most important thing is for our own colleagues to view us as the best employer. At the same time, we’re of course delighted to be number one yet again, and even within a new category of medium-sized companies.”
Sustainable growth through People First
Despite overall staff shortages within the market, the number of employees of Viisi Hypotheken has increased by almost a third over the past year. As of 1 June, there are 64 Viisionairs working for the mortgage advice chain.
Pijper: “We are convinced that if colleagues are satisfied, then satisfied customers will automatically follow. It’s what we refer to as: People first, Customers Second”.
In its quest to attract and retain talent, Viisi doesn’t shy away from challenging existing HR conventions. “In everything we do, we ask ourselves: why are we doing it this way? Will it increase the sense of autonomy? Will it promote our team performances? Will it help everyone to discover and enhance their talents? If the answer to that is ‘no’, then sacred HR houses will be made to topple,” says Pijper.
