Who are we?

We help employees build winning teams for the future

The idea behind Wavers came into existence in 2019 when partners Karsten Kjær and Jan Jonasen met with the burning desire to develop a user-friendly and simple technological solution with the ability to aid working people and companies in improving the well-being and job satisfaction of all.

The dream was to create a user-friendly app that could “take the “temperature” on the organization’s mental and social work environment, and anonymously mobilize help for the employees who might need it. The app makes this help a collective responsibility shared by the employees and the management. On this basis Wavers was born, reaching its first test release in May 2020.

Our vision and mission

Vision: We want to be the platform for employees in the work of securing the individual employee’s right to a healthy mental work environment.

Mission: We help the individual employee, the team, and the company to create a safe, healthy and productive working environment.

We believe that prevention and dialogue can make a significant difference for the individual’s joy of life, the employees’ social wellbeing, the team’s collective job satisfaction and thus ultimately for the company’s reputation.

We work within the scope of UNs Sustainable Development Goals 3.4, 5.B and 8.8 that aim to promote health and wellbeing, promote the empowerment of women through technology, as well as focusing on the individual employee’s right to a healthy psychological working environment.

The team

Karsten Kjær, Founder & CEO
Area of responsibility: Partnerships | Communications | Sales
Reason for being part of Wavers: In more than 20 years, I have had different management positions. I have experienced a financial crisis in the 2000s and now a corona crisis in the “twenties”. Through all these years, I have always tried as a leader to help when employees experienced difficulties both privately and at work.
The dream with Wavers: My dream is to create a work culture based on care and wellbeing as well as improving the communities within every workplace, so that everyone shares the same opportunity to be part of a healthy working environment.

Jan Oksfeldt Jonasen, Co-founder & Software Engineer
Area of responsibility: Technical development and support
Reason for being part of Wavers: I have in the last 14 years worked with digital health platforms and realized that a flexible platform, which employees could use to improve the teamwork, was missing. Thus, I wish to promote a healthy work life for everyone and secure a high level of wellbeing through the development of user-friendly software solutions.
The dream with Wavers: My dream is to create user-friendly technological solutions that improve the wellbeing in every workplace.

Aron Daniel Fischel, User Experience Specialist
Area of responsibility: UX/UI | Research and Development | Product Development
Reason for being part of Wavers: A good work environment and mental welfare are core values for me, which is the reason I spent seven years deeply involved in the Danish labor movement – as an activist and as a member of the board of directors in the union PROSA. Wavers is my chance to work to further these core values, using my primary professional competences as a digital designer specialized in interaction design.
The dream with Wavers: My dream is to shape Wavers into a tool that is so easily accessible, efficient and comfortable to use that it becomes a natural part of everyday life in a considerable fraction of Danish corporations and organizations.
