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 take part in a survey, conducted ty the Great Place to Work® Institute, which aims to find the best companies to work for. We score well in this, and use the independent view it gives to help us make 3 Step It a better 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.
A significant proportion of the equipment we refurbish is sold into developing countries, where new technology is often prohibitively expensive. Once refurbished equipment is sold, we lose control of its final disposal and environmental impact. We therefore continually refine our used equipment sales channels to sell predominantly to countries with effective electoric waste regulations. While we may not control how it will be disposed of, we do what we can to see it 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.
