The feeling of agency, trust, and being challenged with ambitious and interesting tasks to solve, boosts self-confidence and empowers me to take the steering wheel into my own hands. Having fantastic people around who can act as copilots is the cherry on top.

Narratives Matter

An internal Netguru campaign that aims to foster an inclusive workplace culture through increasing knowledge of inclusive language and its role. The language used in everyday communication, both formal and informal, is an essential tool for creating a friendly and inclusive work environment and a culture of belonging.
  • Gender

    "Like a girl" – what does it mean to you? Be mindful about not using gendered terms. Instead of salesman, opt for a more inclusive version – salesperson.

  • Cultural Diversity

    "Illegal immigrant" – a person cannot be illegal, an act can. Phrases such as "flood of immigrants" and "wave of refugees" are a manifestation of the dehumanization of migrants. The use of such language may increase prejudice and contribute to negative attitudes.

  • LGBT+

    “I couldn’t even tell you were gay” – this carries presumptions. LGBT+ community rights in our society are gaining more attention and coverage in the media. Some of the arguments and discussions reveal presumptions or misunderstandings and are hurtful to the community and its members. Educate yourself to understand the language and arguments used to undermine LGBT+ rights and dignity and refrain from using them.

  • Mental Condition

    “Mentally ill” – use “person with a mental health condition.” Avoid using negative or judgemental language when talking about people with mental health conditions. Use language that conveys hope and optimism to support and promote a culture of recovery.

  • Disability

    Disability does not define a person. Say “person with a disability/disabled person" or "people with disabilities/disabled people," not "the disabled" alone. Do not label a person and define them by their diagnosis, it is secondary to who they are.

Working with families – remote work copy

Working families

We want to ensure we are inclusive regardless of the living situation.

We want to ensure we are inclusive regardless of the living situation. We offer flexible working hours and follow the hybrid working model so our employees can choose between their home office or one of our offices or hubs, depending on their preference. In 2022, we also launched two workation hubs in an isolated natural environment with dedicated slots when employees can come with their families. We support women and men returning from parental leave with a dedicated onboarding program. We include persons on parental leave in the regular salary review process to reduce pay gaps. And in 2021 alone, we handed out over 49 cute little teddies to Netguru family newborns.

Netguru allows me to find balance between work and private life. Women play multiple roles, from mothers to caregivers to breadwinners. Flexible working options provide women with much-needed balance and serenity, as they manage numerous roles, constantly juggling various responsibilities.

LGBT+ advocacy

We celebrate Pride Month every year.

For the whole of June, we change our green logo to rainbow colors and fully engage in initiatives in the community. We join Pride parades, run panel discussions and webinars both internally and externally, and share resources that bring us closer to the perspective of the LGBT+ community.

Support for Ukraine

The war in Ukraine is not a local affair.

We see it as our duty to support not just our Ukrainian community at Netguru, but all our neighbors who fear for their lives and the future of their country. Our team took a set of actions to support our employees and the Ukrainian people in the best ways we can offer.

Here’s how we do our bit, and how you can chip in too.

Mental health

We are aware of mental health challenges people face nowadays, and we strive to actively support our employees' health and wellbeing. We provide a set of tools and resources for our people to take care of their mental health.
  • Mindgram

    We cover therapy sessions costs through the mental health platform Mindgram

  • Headspace

    We give employees access to a premium account on Headspace

  • Internal webinars

    We run regular webinars run with qualified experts on topics related to health and wellbeing

  • Knowledge sharing

    We created a dedicated resource page and a Slack channel for ongoing support and questions

  • Yoga practice

    We run weekly yoga classes in the Netguru office and online

  • Dedicated training for leaders

    We empower leaders to provide support for their team members through custom training

  • Flexibility & long leave if needed

    Our employees enjoy flexible working hours and can take short and long leave when needed

  • Workation & workation hubs

    We set up two workation hubs that people can work from. They can also work from any other location combining holiday and work

How does it feel to work at Netguru?

We feel accountable for making our workspace culture inclusive so everyone can realize their full potential while being their own person.

  • I never felt so "home" as being a part of Netguru. I had a lot of concerns and fears but all of them were crushed as soon as I joined. I never felt like people treat me differently because I am not Polish. I can't speak Polish, but it still creates zero barriers for me when I interact with my colleagues.

  • It feels great to work here! Even much better than I anticipated before joining. I feel like I belong here, everyone is so friendly, helpful, and respectful.

  • I have worked in a variety of countries across five continents, so I have had to work with many different cultures (often simultaneously) and find myself a pretty adaptable person. At Netguru, I don’t think I have had to make cultural sacrifices or attempt to “fit in” – I can be myself and although that hasn’t surprised me, it has surprised me at how I feel this same way about my experiences in Poland to date.

  • Netguru’s culture is something I can relate to on a day-to-day basis. We are nice, hard-working, optimistic, brave, and we’re honest. We’re passionate about our work, but we also value a good life balance. In Spain, sooner or later you’ll end up being part of the “family,” and there’s always room at the dining table for one more. I think that can correlate with how it feels to be a Netgural.

  • With the support of the team – both from Netguru and the client – it has been a smooth ride so far. I can say my software development skills are improving with each new task and the best part is I am absolutely having fun while at it too!

  • Personally, I was never treated as an alien here, and people are not treating me differently based on my ethnicity.
