Our employees are critical to our success and our most valuable asset. As a service business, we believe that when we put our people first, they deliver the best possible service for our customers.
We want to be a great place to work for our employees. We continually develop
- a working environment where employees can trust the management
- be proud of their work
- enjoy working with each other
We regularly measure what our employees think about their work. Their direct feedback is listened to.
We also provide job satisfaction, professional development, learning opportunities, fair and appropriate benefits, and a safe working environment where everyone is treated equally and where discrimination of any kind is not tolerated.
Every year we run an employee survey, and use the feedback to assess and improve our management, communications and training approach. Perhaps the key measure is that 98% of employees say 3 Step IT is a great place to work.
Affordable IT technology for everyone
For us, social responsibility is also about providing people with access to affordable technology that
- improves the quality of their everyday lives
- helps to provide them with better educational opportunities
By refurbishing IT equipment and making it available to educational institutions at competitive prices, we can help schools improve the education they provide.
Much of the equipment we refurbish is exported. The largest single market is Poland, where many businesses are less mature and refurbished equipment offers a high value, lower cost solution. While there is widespread demand, we restrict our sales to countries with effective electronic waste regulations, to assure collection and disposal after its second life is done responsibly.
Growth with integrity economic responsibility
Our economic responsibility is based on sustainable growth and improving our competitiveness without compromising our business ethics. It has its roots in the 3 Step IT attitude, which is about being honest, transparent and open in everything we do.
Since 3 Step IT was established in 1997, we have grown quickly, but always also steadily and sustainably. This steady, sustainable growth has allowed us to continually create new job opportunities.
Our goal is to continue this growth and expand internationally. Long term robust and mutually beneficial relationships with customers and partners provides a foundation for our growth.
