Identio is a low-hierarchy company owned 100% by its makers. This means that everyone has the opportunity to participate in the development and decision-making in the company, to work in the way that is most suitable to them and to benefit personally from the company’s growth and development.
We allow each employee to participate in a share issue and become an owner of the company. The first share issue was organised in summer 2020 and by the end of 2021, there had been two.
Decision-making power lies with the company and its employees
In a few years, Identio has grown from a small group of friends to an expert company employing more than 20 people. Our daily work has ensured that Identio has developed into the kind of workplace we want it to be. We want to make Identio look exactly like its employees and to hold the reins even when it comes to the future of the company. Therefore, we have not included external investors. Instead, all our owners work at Identio.
Full ownership also makes it possible for Identio to take a more long-term approach to our work without having to feel pressure because of shorter term results due to external investors.
“I think it’s fair that the founders of the company are not the only ones who benefit from its success, in light of the fact that others have done a lot for the company too.”– Joonas Korgan, CEO
Motivation and meaningfulness through ownership
Employees are the company’s most important asset in good times but, especially, in challenging times. Once we have found good people and skilled professionals, we want to hold on to them.
It is also motivating for the employee when they know that they are building something that matters to them. Commitment strengthens the sense of community and fosters greater experiences of success.
“It is great to be involved in building a company. Through ownership, the work you do benefits you more concretely than before. As an owner, you consider your own work in more detail and keep in mind long-term goals. Being a shareholder also encourages people to develop themselves and thus be the best at what they do. “– Wille Heino, Art Director

The journey of Identio is only just beginning. Although a great deal has happened in a few years, our goals are still far in the future. Our numbers are stable, and our business has been on the rise and profitable from the beginning.
We do not yet know what the future will bring us. We know, however, that we are charging towards it as a company made of iron-clad experts. Our goal is to keep the atmosphere relaxed and to support well-being and coping at work. We are constantly developing new ways of supporting people in their work and leisure time.
If you have become interested in joining us, we hope to hear from you. If the time is not right, you can always wait for a better moment.
We always look for new experts regardless of age, gender, background or other factors that are not relevant to the work. Identio has been built together with different kinds of people and we are proud of it.
