Perkit is a LEAD company based in Norrköping and we have created a product that makes it possible for companies to combine and increase the employee’s productivity and motivation. The product is a platform that collects data from popular fitness apps and devices and then convert the collected data into rewards for the employee.
“Born global” is a trending word, but for us it’s more than just a word, it´s a part of our mindset. From day one we have done everything in English, this is important for us because we have a global team that are located in different parts of the world and by sharing different ideas, cultures and experience on a daily basis we connect as a team. We are not restricting ourselves to a geographic place and that makes it easier for us to attract the best talent for our team no matter where in the world they might be located. With a global workplace, we need digital tools such as Jira, Confluence, Trello, GitHub and Toggle to keep track of progress and tasks. For communication we use Skype, WhatsApp and mail to stay in the loop.
On social medias we have been creating a social present since a year back now, even thou we don’t have a launched product yet. This is a teasing process that can be used to create a buzz when going to a new market, but it can also be instrumental in answering questions, post on forums and influencing opinions from a bottom-up approach. We try to use the social media platforms that our users use, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for instance.
Check us out on perkit.co or follow us on any of our social media accounts to keep track of our steps on becoming a global company in a digital world!
Perk you later
