Our team at Vilnius is multilingual, with 90% of the team speaking at least two languages at a professional level (English, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Lithuanian and German).

CHARLOTTA GAMNIS, Head of Service Management at Telia, says that customer satisfaction should be no. 1 focus. Why? Because it is your customers and stakeholders that actually promote your business. To achieve it, you need to measure customer satisfaction, follow up on feedback, establish a support concept, and continuously improve. But remember: even if it is a lot about technology and processes, it is still a peoples’ business, making employee satisfaction a fundamental building block to succeed.
