Join Fresh Thinking Labs in Tallinn for an afternoon and morning of learning and knowledge-sharing about organisational design at Proekspert.

Proekspert is a unique organisation, which has made the transformation from being a ‘typical software company’ to a service, design and product development company, at the same time as becoming ‘bossless’ – in other words, manager-free!

Over Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th September 2017, the team at Proekspert will share the story of their organisational transformation during interactive learning and facilitated reflective sessions. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to:

  • learn about Proekspert’s uniquely employee-centric organisation and culture, and how it was shaped;
  • help staff at Proekspert to identify and reflect on the opportunities and challenges that their organisational transformation has presented;
  • share your own organisation’s experiences, achievements and challenges in this area with other participants;
  • identify new techniques to encourage employee-driven innovation back in your own organisation.

The Host Company

Proekspert, in its own words, ‘creates software for companies that shape the modern world’. The company prides itself on mixing insight-led technology with cutting-edge design and usability to deliver solutions across industries. Their apps are used for a diverse range of functions and clients – ranging from mobile-controlled adjustable luxury beds to real-time stock market interactions, remote payment for parking spaces to banking updates and air conditioning controls.

The company’s innovative approach to delivering client-centred technological solutions is mirrored in its approach to organisational design and employee experience. At the end of 2013 Proekspert decided to ‘go flat’ by returning managerial power to the grass-roots level; with communication and team effort taking over from middle management. It has also cultivated a unique, holistic HR philsophy, which you can find out more about in this article, written by Tiina Saar-Velmaa, Workplace Happiness Advocate at Proekspert.

Proekspert’s success in pioneering a relatively radical ‘bossless’, employee-centric organisational model has attracted a string of awards over the past three years including Excellent Employer award, the Best Design Implementer, plus Estonia’s Dream Employer of the Year award. The company has also just been shortlisted for "National Public Champion for Estonia" in European Business Awards in the 'The Award for Innovation' category.
