Our Values – Ownership

Today we wrap up our series presenting our revised values with our third value, Ownership. This is how our employees view Ownership:

“To me, Ownership means that each employee aims to do their work to the best of their abilities. Assignments can vary in size and nature, and you often have to work on several things at the same time, so the most important thing is to take ownership and ensure that everything gets done.” -Antti, Managing Associate in Helsinki

“To me, Ownership means taking responsibility for your tasks and embracing the challenge of a difficult one.” -Sven, Associate in Stockholm


“Taking ownership is to know your clients and understand their business. By doing so, you do not only provide a solution but the best solution that aligns with the goals and business of each client.” -Björn, Senior Associate in Stockholm

“To me, Ownership means that no task is too small or insignificant. In every job, you have to do things you get acknowledged for as well as things no one really even notices are done. What is important, however, is that you take care of each task to the best of your abilities.” -Sanna, Reception Supervisor in Helsinki

“What I have really enjoyed at Hannes Snellman is that people, regardless of their title or role, are genuinely proud of their work. When what you do has value and meaning, it is easier to do your best.” -Aaron, Thesis Trainee in Helsinki

Paula, being the Managing Partner for our Stockholm office, also embodies Ownership everyday!
