The better way to work

Softgarden - The better way to work

On a mission to make the world for job seekers a bit better every day

For years we’ve been listening closely to job seekers. They told us about miserable application experiences, their reasons for turning down interesting job offers and their many stories of friends and colleagues that went through 'job application hell‘. We think applying for a job can and must be different, better.

In a world in which every delivery service is rated with one click, application experiences still feel like disappointing visits at the job centre at times: long waits, endless follow up calls and an atmosphere that leaves applicants feel powerless.

Truth is, the ongoing war for talents does not tolerate this behavior by companies anymore.

We took a closer look at application processes through the eyes of candidates and learned a whole lot about what’s important to talents. Our mission naturally evolved from that new found deep understanding of the process:

"We want to make the world of job seekers a bit better every day.“

Fact is, treating applicants with respect and making their experience satisfying today will result in great employees tomorrow.

Culture

The softgarden culture has a lot to do with seeing everything from the applicant's perspective from the inside out: Based on these findings we develop our own creative solutions to improve the application process.

We don’t waste time with long analysis but start working on the solution of the problem to then improve the result iterative.

This creative repetitive process keeps us attentive for new ideas and ways to solve problems. Or as we’d say:

Start now, learn in progress, iterate.
CANDIDATES FIRST - DRAW IT, DRAW IT, SELL IT, MAKE IT - ITERATE! START NOW - LEARN IN PROCESS
