2015 Game Changer: Johanna Pystynen

By Sarah Sipek

Jul. 26, 2015

Finnish company Vincit Oy wants its employees to achieve their dreams. Johanna Pystynen, head of people operations, works to make this utopian ideal possible.

She achieved this goal by creating a human resources department at Vincit Oy, a software company, that facilitates conversations between emp-loyees and managers about their passions —everything from travel to video game programming — and figures out how those dreams can be achieved through flexible scheduling. 

Pystynen, 35, ensures that the company is doing more than molding well-rounded employees by helping execute Vincit Oy’s “money back guarantee” to clients. Those not satisfied with the results of the software receive a full refund. As a result, the staff remains motivated to produce high-quality work.

Her combined efforts have helped Vincit Oy win Finland’s Best Place to Work award in 2014 and 2015.
