A fair employer

For us, our employees have been the number one priority right from the get-go. It might sound like a cliché, but here at Vatupassi, the staff are like family. We are a family-owned business after all. That in turn means that we take good care of our employees and trust them – same as family.

And when our employees are happy, the customers like coming over to Vatupassi too.


At Vatupassi, the staff doesn’t waste time running around. They can get from place to place with ease on electric bikes, courtesy of the employer. If there are any bumps on the road, we have comprehensive occupational health care and voluntary work ability insurance. And because everyone at Vatupassi has their own passions alongside their work, we offer our employees Smartum benefits for sports and culture, as well as wellness and massage benefits, which can be used according to their preferences. We also provide a bonus for non-smoking to everyone. Yes, everyone! Even those who have never smoked.

We also understand that well-being encompasses not only physical health but also the inner workings of the mind. That’s why we are committed to supporting our employees’ mental health. As part of our comprehensive approach, we utilize a proactive mental well-being service known as Auntie. Through Auntie, Vatupassians can engage in confidential conversations with well-being professionals, addressing any pressing matters that weigh on their minds, whether related to work or personal life.

Occupational safety is non-negotiable. We provide one paid day off every six months to a Vatupassi employee whose observation or idea related to occupational safety, work quality, or the work environment contributes to the well-being of the entire team and moves us forward as a company.

We have multiple ways to show care, but we don’t just go through the motions. The main thing is that everyone feels good.


The Vatupassi staff are a smart bunch. Because we are open-minded developers of the tool and equipment rental branch, those who come to work for us tend to be open-minded too, and with a curious nature. And one’s hunger for knowledge does not stop, does it. The appetite just grows and grows. Here at Vatupassi we feed that hunger. We offer both in-house training and training courses outside the company, whenever a new hunger strikes.

One rule that we have is that you can’t work without permission. In other words, we are very strict about the fact that all our employees have their permits and licences in order and up to date. And we have our well-trained bosses’ department to keep tabs on that. All our forepersons undergo a “10-month boot camp”, where the comradely, sociable and taking-care-of-others working culture of Vatupassi is instilled into them, creating the backbone of our company. A boss who is confident and up to their task isn’t going to be a nit-picker complaining about some frivolous things.

We’ve also committed to continuously improving the occupational safety and well-being of our entire staff by joining the Vision Zero Forum (‘Nolla tapaturmaa -foorumi’). Because as everyone knows, a significant portion of accidents can be avoided by providing training and proper preparation.


Our working culture here at Vatupassi is characterised by the fairness and flexibility of a family-owned company. We take care of our own, which means that we share the responsibility, trust each other and help each other out without any micromanaging.

In general, we tend to keep the nit-picking and rigidity to a minimal. For us, a genuine and relaxed corporate culture means a low-hierarchy structure avoiding excessive bureaucracy. If you have something on your mind, you can – and should – give your boss a call, even when you’re “off-duty”. We also enable job rotation for those who want a change of scenery. Once we’ve found a great team member, we’re not going to let them go easily.

The employee net promoter score (eNPS), measured in connection with our latest staff survey is also an indicator of the mutual trust. The eNPS tells you how likely the Vatupassi staff members are to recommend their workplace to the people they know. We scored +58 in 2024 (+76 in 2022 and +85  in 2023), which is a little bit lower than previously, but still higher than the average (compared average +33,39). They say if it’s anything above a +50, it’s excellent!

We also have our own HR specialist who ensures that employees are well and aware of their rights and benefits. We believe that you can never communicate internal matters too much. All Vatupassi employees commit to adhering to the company’s ethical guidelines and principles upon joining us.
