Co-founder Daniel Eriksson says that he has had to struggle a lot with personnel issues over the years. First as sales manager at Metro and later at celebrity agency P-Agency, which he founded. Eriksson explains that hiring a senior HR consultant is too much hassle for small businesses, that’s where Wndy comes in.Wndy’s solution to the problem is a web platform where companies can book video meetings or chat with experienced HR consultants.

“ There are lots of services out there but they are not adapted for companies with 10-49 employees, the definition of small business owners. As a small business owner, I want to get in touch with a knowledgeable person to play ball, but then I handle the situation myself based on the advice I have received, ”says Daniel Eriksson. Among the typical things that companies need help with, he mentions guidance before recruitment, employment contracts, pension issues and difficult conversations with employees.
