Corporate Social Values

Working as a responsible company is good business for Amesto. We always strive to find good solutions for contributing to society, whether through vacant premises for intrapreneurs, cooperation with social entrepreneurs, internships for candidates who need them or strategic pro bono projects. Corporate social values should be a natural part of our working day at Amesto.

Our mission is simplifying business, but we must also seek to simplify in everything we do, either it means the way we show our environmental commitment or how we work sustainably. 150,000 people use Amesto’s services every day. We have more than 1000 employees in Scandinavia and hundreds of providers. Amesto can and aim to be a long-term partner for a sustainable society.

Global Compact

Amesto joined the UN Global Compact initiative in 2012, at the initiative of CEO Arild Spandow. Global Compact is a UN initiative working towards driving sustainable business forward. More than 10,000 companies and NGOs from 145 countries have pledged allegiance to 10 universal principles in human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption.

Shared Value Partnership

Together with Visma and Doctors Without Borders, we aim to prove that partnerships can be the key to efficient, sustainable solutions. All businesses have their own unique reasons for working towards a fair and sustainable outcome. Creating new ways of working together is a great way to achieve the best solutions.

Culture and ethics

In order for the group to enjoy great confidence, it is also important that each individual employee behave in a way that builds confidence in the company. Although each country's laws dictate external constraints for what is "right and wrong", each company must also incorporate its internal rules of conduct adapted to the business.

Code of conduct

Amestos success depends on a commitment to build trust and a good reputation among customers, suppliers, business partners, bank and insurance connections and public authorities. One of our aims is to have good business management with clear environment and social responsibility.

Our values

Amesto has a market-oriented philosophy. Our aim is to provide optimal service to the customers. Those working closest to the customer can influence how the customer experiences Amesto. Consequently, our employees must have freedom, authority and responsibility to act

The Values of Intrapreneurship

In Amesto we have many intrapreneurs who choose to apply their entrepreneurial genes in an already established organisation, rather than trying to establish their own business. Get to know our intrapreneurs better!

Amesto is an Eco-Lighthouse

We want our employees at Amesto to be proud to work for a company that is future-oriented and conscious of its environmental and social responsibilities. We want our customers to know that we are committed to the environment at work.

Our history

Amesto's history can be traced back to 1948 when Else Widerøe founded a company that mediated secretarial jobs to foreigners after the Second World War. In 1980 her son, Thor Spandow took over the company and developed it until it was sold to Adecco in 2001.
