Assessed against stringent criteria and rated against some of Norway’s biggest names, DigiPlex has jumped five places in a year (from 15th in 2020).

These aspects, plus to the sense of personal responsibility and engagement that are frequently reported by staff are contributing to DigiPlex being a Great Place to Work.
“Last year we set ourselves the goal to at least maintain our status in the Great Place to Work rankings. To move up five places, against the background of the challenges of the COVID pandemic, is testament not only to the commitment of all our employees, but to the resilience of our culture. I am super proud of our people,” said Haakon Holm Knapstad, Chief HR & Compliance Officer at DigiPlex.
“In my first year as CEO I have constantly seen evidence of how DigiPlexers take ownership, initiative and support each other as they collaborate to develop and deliver solutions and service to our customers. They have the can-do attitude that makes this such an exciting, empowering and rewarding place to work. I am honoured that we have reached 10th place in Norway’s Best Workplaces especially in times like these,” said Wiljar Nesse, CEO DigiPlex.
“For DigiPlex to advance five levels up to 10th position amongst Norway’s Best Workplaces in just one year, and during a global pandemic, is impressive. Such a rapid advancement is seldom seen during the history of GPTW. It is clear that the DigiPlex team has a very special spirit of camaraderie, and this has grown even stronger despite the many challenges of this past year,” said Jannik Krohn Falck, CEO Great Place to Work.
