Our leadership principles
Have the best team in place
Leaders at Kognity build and maintain high-performing teams by recruiting top talent and enabling them to do their best work. We never compromise when hiring, so you can be certain that your colleagues will be awesome.
Build trust and caring relationships
Leaders invest time in developing authentic connections with their team by getting to know them, sharing their own backgrounds and aspirations, and fostering strong relationships among team members. This genuine care and focus on well-being builds trust, enhances collaboration, and facilitates open communication.
Establish radical candor
Leaders establish open and transparent communication with their team, providing honest and direct feedback on their own leadership performance and the performance of team members. This approach fosters fast professional growth by ensuring mutual trust, effective communication, and personal development within the team.
Leaders delegate ownership rather than tasks, fostering trust and promoting effective leadership. Delegating responsibilities accelerates innovation, personal growth, and scalability – provided that team members are equipped with clear objectives, accountability measures, and ongoing support.
We work hard and have fun. We constantly challenge ourselves and each other to produce our best work.
We value collaboration, transparency, and the sharing of ideas. We focus on what’s important and deliver on our promises — to each other and our customers.
We embrace and celebrate diversity. We’re truly committed to building a diverse and inclusive environment where you feel you belong.
We embrace flexible working. We trust people to decide where they work best and feel most comfortable. To us, flexibility means having the possibility to decide how and when you work in a way that fits your personal life. We also have a lovely office in central Stockholm, where Kognity employees are welcome at any time.
Here are some examples of how we practice flexibility:
- We take breaks and do personal stuff during the day. Grocery shopping, gym workouts, long runs, or handling personal errands. We’re transparent about this.
- Early bird or night owl? You have the freedom of starting your day later or finishing earlier.
- We keep meetings to a minimum and prioritise asynchronous communication to maximize deep work.
Our commitment to diversity, equity & inclusion
Our goal is to create a culture where people feel like they belong, are respected, and are allowed to be their true selves.
How will we get there?
Creating an inclusive environment where behaviors and choices actively include everyone, ensuring that they can fully participate as a member of the group.
Embracing diversity by having a broader representation of backgrounds and personal differences, and by appreciating the value in those differences.
Implementing equitable practices, processes, and policies that provide fair opportunities for everyone.
