This is the company's third headquarters extension done in the past two years. Covering more than 6,000 square meters distributed along five different floors, Softonic's main offices include two dining halls, four cafeterias, a library, relaxation and massage spaces as well as other areas where employees can play video games, table soccer, pinball or ping-pong, among other leisure activities. José Sánchez, Creative Director at Softonic and the designing mind behind these new spaces, explains that "Our goal is to provide employees with an environment they enjoy working in, not just for the aesthetics, but because they all find it comfortable and pleasant. The fact that the design was done by an employee of the company was a great advantage, as all the inspiration came from the staff and how they use their working space”.
The company has always demonstrated a strong commitment to the wellbeing of its employees. In addition to ideal working spaces, Softonic staff members also enjoy other benefits that include flexible work schedules, private health insurance for themselves and their families, restaurant vouchers, and a paid day off on their birthdays. For five years in a row, Softonic's HR initiatives have led the company to be one of the best places to work in Spain, within the ranking issued annually by the independent human resources consultant Great Place to Work®.
