Did you hear that people living in Nordic countries are called the happiest residents all over the world? They are not only the happiest nation, but also one of the world’s economic leaders. The secret of the success and happiness of the Scandinavian countries lies in the broadly understood balance - in private and professional life. But what does a software house from Poland have in common with Nordic?
iRonin IT experts can be the missing (technological) element necessary for the proper functioning of Scandinavian companies and projects development. Why? Read and find out!
The secret of Nordic happiness
For several years Scandinavian countries - Denmark, Norway, Sweden, are in the TOP 10 happiest countries in the world due to the World Happiness Report1. Balance between family and professional life, as well as the ability to combine work with other spheres of life, make Scandinavia the happiest place on earth. Moreover, as regards to the Human Development Index from 20182, Norway is ranked 1st and Sweden - 8th place.
This secret is the fact that Scandinavian countries have incredibly high quality of work life and strongly developed social life. The most common factors which largely contribute to such a high score is paying very much attention to proper hygiene at work, regular meals, breaks and flexible work hours.
Happiness for Scandinavian people is synonymous with achieving a harmonious and fulfilling life in all areas of functioning. In the work-life balance method a point of view is that somebody pursues himself not only at work, but also thanks to a successful private life. It prevents burnout, depression, general dissatisfaction, neurosis and other ailments that are dangerous for people.
iRonin way of work life balance
A work – life balance method is used more and more often in public discussion and within the European Union, where the reconciliation of work and personal life is one of a new policy priority. Despite the fact that Work-life balance is (unfortunately) not very common in Poland, iRonin has been practicing this management form from the very beginning (till now it’s more than 11 years).
The Main 3 rules in iRonin Software House are:
- 100% remote work with flexible work arrangements in terms of working hours;
- Workplace flexibility- in iRonin it is pretty common to work whenever employees want to;
- Soft management style- in our company (alike in Scandinavian countries) dominates this kind of management.
It is associated with a flat hierarchy = everyone is treated with the same respect and we believe that high work efficiency is achieved due to building relationships based on emotional employee commitment. What’s more, in both- Scandinavian and iRonin, a big impact is put into trusting the employee and caring for the well-being of employees. You can take a look here how iRonin team spends their free time together, eg. celebrate integration, discovering Poland’s landscape and more!
But overall happiness is just one piece of the puzzle. Let’s talk about economies
The Polish Economic Institute prepared a ranking of the most developed economies in the world. Sweden, Denmark and Norway proved to be the world’s most expanded economies in this ranking.
What more, the Nordic countries are considered as digital leaders in European and global contexts. In the European Commission’s Digital Economy and Society Index, Denmark, Sweden and Finland are on top the list in terms in both- overall global and individual indicators.
Above ranking is based on five aspects:
1) connectivity (fixed and mobile broadband);
2) human capital (digital skills);
3) use of the Internet;
4) integration of digital technology (e-commerce);
5) digital public services;
The Polish economy is not lagging behind
Since 2018, Poland is in the 25 most developed economies in the world. What’s more, our country is a precursor in Central and Eastern Europe.
Moreover, In the light of the HackerRank of 2019, Polish developers are among the top three in the world.
Considering the great development opportunities for Poland, the above factors combine very well with values that iRonin has been building from the very beginning: continuous development and delivering value to clients by providing them with access to the best IT experts.

Moreover, the dynamic development of the Polish economy makes our countries good partners in the business field.
