One Day in Helsinki was born over two years ago from our passion to create unique experiences in Helsinki. From the beginning it was important to be clear about what we want to do and how we want to do it.
We started the exploration with deep discussions about our own personal values and what we hold most important in life. For our CEO, Niki, the most important personal value is ‘spreading good vibes to people around him’. It’s what he wants to do, no matter if it’s for work or not; that insight became a central theme and foundation for everything else. We also quite quickly realized, that we want to offer a sense of luxury to people and that we want to do it in a warm, positive and fun way. These discussions were summarized in our Mission to create “A Day You Will Never Forget”.
After we had clarity of our Mission, we decided we want clear Values to guide us and keep us on the right path. Our values would define our thinking and behaviors in everything that we do. We wanted values that will enable us to create those unforgettable experiences for people visiting Helsinki. We also wanted them to resonate with our personal values and who we are.
One Day in Helsinki Values (to be lived true every day)
- The first value, “Respect for People”, emerged from our passion to offer unique and memorable experiences to people visiting Helsinki. We listen to each guest and want to understand what they enjoy. Everything starts with You.
- Our second value became “Positive & Warm”. Our style is to offer luxury in an authentic, positive and warm way. We want you to relax and have fun from the first moment we meet.
- Our third value is “Trustworthiness & Safety”. This value guides us to make sure our guests never have to worry about anything. We take care of the schedule and the program, you can just enjoy the ride.
- Our fourth value is “Bold & Creative”. Boring is not memorable and an unforgettable day is extraordinary. Our thinking starts with the assumption that everything is possible. We create the best experience for You.
Over the years we have had the pleasure of taking hundreds of people on unique Helsinki adventures. With our experiences, our commitment to our Values has only become stronger. They continue guide us in our Mission to create amazing and unforgettable experiences for people visiting Helsinki. And it feels great!
