We take playing
We want people to enjoy our games for the right reasons - to have fun - and create a culture of belonging internally.
Our focus areas
Fostering a Culture of Growth
Next Games grows with its people. We are proactive in learning about our employees’ passions and supporting efforts to acquire new skills. People have changed their entire careers with us. That’s something we’re proud of!
Wellbeing at work and in relation to one’s personal life is important to us. We don’t boast about overtime. We’re experienced enough to know that overtime doesn’t work over time.
Diversity and Inclusion
Our guiding light in growing our team is that we don’t look for a culture fit — we look for what each person brings to our culture and values to make them richer.
We made a big commitment to reach 50% of non-male identifying employees in our staff by 2030. It’s a long road: something we are eager to start building with other parties in the industry. We believe the rewards will be well worth it.
In 2021 we also set up an employee-led working group focusing on diversity, inclusion and belonging that welcomes employees to participate across the whole company. We have also put considerable effort into ensuring equal and fair pay as well as ensuring our recruitment process is free of any unintentional bias.
We want people to enjoy our games for the right reasons - to have fun. At Next Games we take responsible gaming seriously and want to offer a source of entertainment that people can enjoy in a safe, secure and fair environment. Responsible gaming is a driving force to maintain a sustainable business.
Just as with our internal practices at Next Games, we pay great attention to diversity, inclusion, and belonging within our communities. We are sensitive and alert to any form of hate speech or agenda-pushing in our spaces, and we promote diversity and inclusion through both our live events and our community policies, such as allowing players to choose their own pronouns on our chat servers.
Next Games is a member of Fair Play Alliance and part of the coalition of over 140 other gaming companies. Together we are committed to developing and sharing information to guarantee an active, safe, and fair game experience for all kinds of players.
Society and the environment
Operating in an environmentally aware fashion is important to us. We are committed to recycling our waste and saving energy wherever possible, such as by using motion detectors and timers in lighting. We are nearly paper-free and aim to further reduce printing and the use of paper in our office. We are optimizing the use of our work equipment, which leads to longer life-cycles for devices.
We are an active contributor with an advisor board seat in Neogames, a member-based non-profit game industry organization. Through Neogames we support and participate in the development of Finland’s game industry. Through Neogames we are also an associate member of Playing for the Planet Alliance, a group of gaming-companies who have made voluntary, ambitious, specific, and time-based commitments to people and the planet.
