Mjølner Wins IT-Award 2016

It-forum awarded Mjølner with the IT-Award 2016 at the annual it-forum conference last night. Other nominees were Qiagen, Cadpeople, and It-vest.

The requirements to be nominated, let alone win, were the following:

  • the company has put its clear mark on IT development in the region
  • the company is characterized by a management style that is motivating and inspiring
  • the company is a role model for others because of the positive footprint it leaves on the industry

The board of it-forum decided on Mjølner as the winner because:

Mjølner has left its clear mark on the development of IT in the region because it has become a large commercial company, originating from research. Mjølner has created many highly specialized jobs, and at the same time, the company has always been an active player in the industry, as well as in educational and research debabates. Mjølner is characterized by a management style that is motivating and inspiring which shows through Mjølner’s continuous ranking in the top of employee satisfaction surveys. Mjølner is, therefore, a role model for others because of the positive footprint it leaves on the industry. Mjølner was established in 1988, and has through the long haul had an extraordinary importance for the it-development in the Midtjylland region.

The press was quick to pick up on the story. Today, Lokalavisen Aarhus published the article: “Fine IT-Award For Aarhus-Based Company With Giant Growth”, writing that Mjølner is “a shining star on the Danish IT-sky”.

Furthermore, Århus Stiftstidende wrote a piece, “Honored for Their Work: Aarhus-Based IT-Comet Shares Profit With Employess”, also mentioning our annual tradition of sharing the profit with our co-workers.

Our CEO Brian Gottorp Jeppesen received the award at the conference, and later posed together with CFO Eske Mathias Ulsted Sørensen, Platforms & Architecture Manager Ellen Agerbo, and Sales Manager Peter Rickers (picture at the top).
