Our Vision and Values
Our vision is to turn our employees’ and clients’ potential into reality, which is a generous vision that ensures our commitment to our clients, partners, and ourselves. By actively working towards the following Webstep goals we will accomplish this:
By being honest and uncomplicated. Working for Webstep should be a positive experience and we aim for openness, simplicity, and reliability. By focusing on goal oriented recruitment, excellent guidance, and strong services we create the foundation for why employees and clients choose us.
By being innovative and competent. In an ever changing society we are able to face these changes with a progressive and business oriented mindset. At Webstep we actively create change, improvements, and innovation wherever we go.
By being engaged and quality oriented. We enjoy working with people and we appreciate developing, using, and sharing our knowledge. We actively participate in various work environments and we work hard towards our own performance and quality.
Corporate Social Responsibility - CSR
Webstep is located in Norway and Sweden. We are very well established within our cities and we have professional relationships in various business areas, markets, nongovernmental organizations, partnerships, and the society. Our relationships are built on honesty, respectability, and trust, and our values help create great development within our society and businesses.
The services we develop and deliver both to public and private organizations provide significant help and are of great importance socially and professionally. We turn critical community tasks into reality, such as within health, transportation, tolls and customs, and within accounting, electrical power, pension and retirement, and justice administration.
We cover most industries and we provide expertise and great capability to key players in for instance the food industry, banking and financial institutions, oil and offshore operations, power and energy, and to telecom and organizations in the software industry.
We care about our work environment and employee rights, terms and benefits, and the opportunity for growth both on and off work. We believe our employees thrive in an environment built on trust, with the opportunity to make a difference, and freedom to take responsibility and make mature decisions in the best interest of oneself and the organization.
CSR: Agreements and Guidelines
Our work agreements and guidelines emphasize ethical behaviour, strong data security, and encourage excellent financial and practical business practices. Webstep’s policy on anti corruption and our commitment to data security are essential when it comes to our relationship with clients, suppliers, and partners.
Award Winning work environment
Webstep is locally present with an award winning work environment while also emphasizing a healthy work/leisure balance. This flexibility is an encouragement to our employees to support volunteer work and non profit organizations while also being environmentally aware in all our actions.
Webstep is about redefining the rules of the game, carefully choosing our employees, with high focus on a solid education, relevant experience, and a social persona.
The result? A ‘big little company’ – we are big due to our large number of excellent employees and our ability to deliver, and small due to our local closeness tailored to their markets and with a unique work environment and culture.
Webstep is tailored towards digital transformation (digitization), customer satisfaction, and proud consultants, who feel at home.
The startup phase 2000-2003
During the beginning our focus was to build and shape an innovative, seamless and efficient IT consultant firm made up of competent people. The idea was that a company consisting of senior consultants would easily succeed in both hiring the best and ensuring that our clients work with the best. A company built on an excellent working environment combined with returning customers was a recipe for success. And it worked.
By 2003 the work model was in place and the company was growing accordingly with excellent results. Our focus was sales and customers, marketing, and customer consulting and customer follow-up. It was now time to broaden our horizon.
Blooming as of 2004
Between 2004 and 2006 Webstep was established in several cities with Oslo being first, quickly followed by Stavanger and Trondheim. The same work model was utilized. Between 2007 and 2010 the Oslo office was divided into four different divisions based on our various technology- and market areas. A division for Java- and .Net technology was created first followed by divisions for Business Intelligence and project- and testing management.
The acquisition of Diversify in 2012 in Sweden resulted in offices in Stockholm and Malmo and in 2015 Diversify changed its name to Webstep. In 2013 a division for Business Intelligence was created in Bergen and the following year a development department was in place in Kristiansand.
Digitized times – 2015 and forward
We live in a perfect era surrounded by anything digital and digitized. The tools, the experiences, and our ability to capture and restart everything is well established within Webstep and our strength is our ability to turn a customer’s technical opportunity into a business reality. We live in and with the development of all technical opportunities.
In 2015 we added Internet of Things to our key focus areas which centers around the cloud, mobility, machine learning, robotics, analytics, and more. Our hands-on competence in technology, across platforms, and our close relationships with our clients, create opportunities. We live in the age of digitalization and Webstep is at the forefront.
