We are a team of people with a strong desire to transform society, who work in the field of IT and consulting. Get to know us!
We think about people, develop trust, commit ourselves to providing the best services and contribute to improving society.
This is our reason for being, and we do it with the focus on people, their well-being and their dignity. Basetis is making progress towards our aim of providing technological consultancy in a way that allows us to meet our clients’ needs while ensuring good conditions for those who work for us and promoting social improvement.
It is the fundamental value that holds our interpersonal relationships and, therefore, our company. We want to achieve a high level of trust with all the people and entities we interact with: those who are part of Basetis, our customers, our suppliers, our environment, society, etc.
We make sure that the maximum information of the company is available to all the people who constitute Basetis. Also, sincerity and clarity lay the foundations for communicating with customers and who surrounds us.
Decision-making must be as close as possible to the environment in which it impacts. To decide, it is necessary to have as much information as possible (getting it from the most knowledgeable people if needed) and know the opinion of the people about who will impact the decision.
We create an environment where we can show ourselves as we are and at the same time improve and grow in all aspects, including personal and professional.
The common good
We work to strengthen human dignity, solidarity, ecological sustainability, democratic participation and transparency. To enhance cooperation above the competition and the good of all people. Above profit is the transformation our society needs.
It is a fundamental part of our mission, vision and values to contribute to a more ethical, fair, sustainable society that ensures the rights and freedoms of people. We strive day by day to reaffirm our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and align Basetis’ activity with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations.
We structure our CSR policy in five main areas: good governance, labour, social, environmental and economic, and as a whole we contemplate eleven of the seventeen SDGs. Within the framework of our mission, vision and values, we place special emphasis on decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), gender equality (SDG 5), inequality reduction (SDG 10), health and well-being (SDG 3), climate action (SDG 13), and peace, justice and strong institutions (SDG 16).
The Teal model
We base our organizational model on the Teal paradigm proposed by Frederic Laloux. This model understands any organization as a living organism in continuous evolution, with objective goals that are not imposed from a direction and where all the people who are part of it determine their future.
The Teal model is based on the principles of self-management, evolutionary purpose and completeness, which we consider fundamental values of our company. In this framework, in Basetis we organize our management through transversal areas in which the people of the company are voluntarily involved in accordance with their motivations, knowledge and interests. Therefore, decisions and actions are taken with the dialogue, the advice and listening to the purpose of the organization, instead of being imposed from the top of a hierarchical chain.
What are we like?
We look after the well-being of those who work with us. We make it easy for everyone to develop their own professional career and reconcile it with their personal life.
Well-being in our offices
We have rest and leisure areas in our offices and allow people at Basetis to use our facilities to organize training, cultural and leisure activities.
We enable teleworking to promote a balance between family and work life, as well as to avoid travel and contribute to improving the environment.
Training and careers
We encourage people to select the training they need, as our career model is based on the freedom to establish one’s own path and objectives. Basetis promotes training and covers 50% of the cost.
We promote the initiatives that arise from the enthusiasm and creativity of the people in our team to turn their ideas into projects. Our Experiences are proof of this.
Our model for bringing in new talent is based on referrals to guarantee the competence of the professionals who work for us.
Fix and target
We have a fixed salary for all employees and a target salary for employees with a fixed salary of more than 22 thousand euros. The achievement of the target salary is linked to the quarterly and overall financial health of the company.
We believe that economic inequality is negative and prevents people’s social integration. So we have adopted the rule of the winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics, Jan Tinbergen, that the ratio between the lowest and highest salaries should never be more than 1:7’5.
We are committed to a model where each person can choose to receive a part of his or her salary in products such as health insurance, restaurant or transport tickets, childcare or training.
Aspects such as a structured organization, documented and involving all the people in the company, as well as an excellent working environment, have allowed us to certify our management system in accordance with the quality standards dictated by ISO 9001:2015.
During the first months in Basetis, most people will benefit from the Shadowing program. In that program, they will have a reference person who will help him/her to adapt to the different work methodologies, team dynamics and techniques applied to the different Basetis services. Therefore, they will feel part of our company from the beginning and feel welcome and motivated.
Basetis joins the GETHub, the Cafés at La Pedrera are launched and the first edition of Lovelace Connecting Women is held. At the same time, efforts are made to promote solidarity actions for Ukraine. On a global scale, the decision is taken to make Catalan the preferred language of Basetis and a language policy document is created to positively reinforce the language. It should be noted that 2022 is also the year of an important change in the work methodology globally, and we incorporate the “Hoshin Plan”.
With the consequences of COVID-19 still hanging over us, teleworking is formalised, and we continue to promote virtual initiatives to maintain engagement between people. A free Psychological Support Service was set up to prevent and improve the mental health of the organisation. At the same time, ISO27001 certification was obtained, and the remuneration model was substantially changed, with all employees receiving a fixed salary and a target salary. We also created the “caring” initiatives and training for the wellbeing of the Basetianas where we guarantee wellbeing and ensure that good working practices and good time management of people are carried out.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, in March telework started and from April to June the company adhered to an RTET (Record of Temporary Employment Regulation) due to force majeure. This year, in addition, Basetis acquires the digital agency Motto, with which it expands its services related to marketing and design, and at the end of the year the team already exceeds 300 people.
Second stage of opening the office in La Pedrera. The new site allows the entire team to be divided between this office and the Sant Cugat office and the closure of the headquarters in the Mapfre building. This year, Basetis signs the Citizen Commitment to Sustainability and rises to 9th in the Best Workplaces ranking.
Basetis’s team numbers more than 100 people and the Sant Cugat office is opened in December. The team’s rapid growth leads to a shake-up of Basetis’s internal organization.
In March, Basetis opens the first office of its own in the Mapfre building in Barcelona for people in the conversion team and to provide other new services to allow diversification into areas such as Java, Web, Mobile and Design.
Basetis hires its first employee. That same year, the company’s staff begins to grow, and the data conversion team is created to provide services in the office of a client in the Mapfre building.
On 6 November, Marc Castells and Víctor Roquet found Base Technology and Information Service, Basetis, a company in the ICT industry that initially provides professional services.
