JIC Tampere has selected the best employer in the Tampere region every year since 1983. Among the selection criteria are the key figures of the company, employee development, employer image and effect on the economy of the region.

– It is a great honour to be in the final, says Samuli Niiranen, CEO of Mylab.

– At Mylab, we have invested in employership and our employee tenure is long. Mutual trust and respect are highly important values for us and we promote them in everything we do, Niiranen continues.

Hannu Honkala, VP, Solutions, is delighted that Mylab was among the finalists. According to Honkala, it means that the corporate culture and atmosphere are motivating and people enjoy working at Mylab, which in turn is reflected in the company’s results.

– Mylab wants to be a secure and equal workplace that invests in employee well-being, where work is meaningful and where the atmosphere is comfortable and pleasant, Honkala says.

Mylab Oy is a significant health care technology company and employer in the Tampere region. This year, the company’s net sales will exceed 12 million euros. Mylab employs 86 people, 80 of which are based in Tampere.

– At Mylab, we have wonderful customers and we make a great team. Mylab flexibly accommodates employees’ needs at the different stages of their lives, says Eva Rowe, Key Account Manager.

Employee-nominated finalists

Among the finalists of the Employer of the Year competition are a total of 12 successful large and small employers based in the Tampere region.

Finalists were nominated on the basis of employee nominations.

– Mylab's employees emphasised recruitment of new employees, active measures to advance equality and exceptional employee benefits. For an IT company, Mylab has exceptionally balanced gender distribution and an extensive age range, says Hannu Järvimäki, Project Manager for the Employer of the Year competition at JIC Tampere.

The JIC Tampere project team interviewed all finalists and charted the opinions of employees of the finalists through a web survey.

The winner was selected by a jury of prominent business figures. The patron of the competition was Kari Neilimo, Honorary Counsellor and Doctor of Economics.
