We’re a big business that works hard to retain the great things from when we were a small business. We encourage people to have a go and don’t mind if they fail. We promote people based on performance, and nothing else. Sasken is a place where people make a real difference. And that’s the secret to our success –having the right people, with the right attitude in the right roles. We’re looking for the right people now. People who like to talk but also like to listen.
