TURKU, FINLAND, December 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Sofokus wins the International Innovation Awards with Best Monday ™ organization management system

Sofokus was named the winner of the 2021 International Innovation Awards in the Organization & Culture category. Other winning organizations included Vodafone Germany, Dubai Police, and MIT Hong Kong.

International Innovation Awards® (IIA) is a recognition program managed by Enterprise Asia. It rewards remarkable innovations in the Product, Service and Solution, and Organization and Culture categories to encourage companies to continue investing in innovation. Sofokus is a Finnish digital sales agency that helps ambitious organizations adapt and thrive in the era of the new normal by using composable business solutions. Better Monday ™ is an organization management system that Sofokus has innovated to support these aspirations.

“We believe that innovation requires living, flexible, radically transparent and happy organisms instead of artificial, rigid and hierarchical organizations. Innovation and creativity cannot be forced, which is why we have instead tried to create the best possible conditions to nurture them, ”says Milla Heikkilä, Chief Happiness Officer of Sofokus.

Originally, the development of the Better Monday ™ concept began as an internal effort to rethink leadership and organizational models at Sofokus. The company has tested several existing models and innovated along the way. For example, around eight years ago, Sofokus started experimenting with remote working and quickly let its staff freely choose where to work.

Sofokus has also replaced the traditional board of directors with a virtual decision-making forum called Expendables, which anyone in the company can participate in. Recently, the company also introduced an additional one-week fully paid leave called Sofokus LifeSaver to reduce pandemic staff fatigue.

“To celebrate our victory at The IIA, we present to you the ‘Learning thermometer‘, our most recent addition to the Better Monday ™ concept. It’s a practical model for accelerating learning in high-growth environments, ”says Teemu Malinen, founder of Sofokus.
