Our course of action

Our way of working both internally and with our clients and partners is based on our values: customer orientation, being an expert, and adjusting quickly to changes. Taking care of the quality of our operations, ensuring safety at work and protecting nature are important tasks for each and every person in our work community.

Each of us works for our clients. We wish to offer our adult students versatile opportunities for an individual learning process, and a chance to improve the skills needed in work life. To companies, we offer companionship to promote their success; companionship that is based on our work-life-orientation and up-to-date expertise.

As an employer Faktia is systematic, result-oriented and equal. We will take responsibility for our actions and take care of our own, encouraging our employees also to constantly improve their knowledge in their own field of expertise. The fluency of our working processes owns mainly thanks to our personnel’s skills and mutual co-operation.

We have set clear goals for our operation, and make sure to compare them regularly with what we have achieved. When evaluating and improving the quality of our education, we use the EFQM Excellence Model (formerly known as European Foundation for Quality Management) as help in systematic self-evaluation.

In the crane branch we have also in use a certificate that fulfills the ISO 9001 –quality confirmation standards. It has been in use since 1998.The certificate covers the education of drivers, mechanics and inspectors, as well as selling and consulting of the crane services.
