While the IT industry in Ukraine is experiencing an economic downturn, Leobit has completed renovations in its own premises and moved to a new office. For the company owning an office was a long-term goal and the initial steps were taken quite some time ago. While external circumstances slowed down this effort, on May 5, 2023, all Leobit employees were able to see the results and visit the new office.
The company is now located at 108 Stryiska Street in the Natsionalnyy Business Center, occupying the entire 8th floor. The office space is designed for 90 workstations and takes into account that most employees are already accustomed to working from home and do not come to the office every day. The office is conveniently situated near the Fabrik shopping center, Bodnarivka Park, and Stryiskyi Park.
“We have long dreamed of moving to our own premises that would be tailored to the needs of our employees, and which would take into consideration even the smallest details. We have divided the space into several sections and created a comfortable environment for work, breaks, and leisure time”.
The new office is equipped with a multi-level recovery system, a centralized lighting system, air conditioning, and an audio management system. The entire system can be remotely controlled via a mobile application, and the watering of indoor plants is automated.
“The blackouts that occurred in Ukraine taught us the importance of always having a backup plan. That is why the new office operates with an uninterrupted power supply, is equipped with Starlink satellite internet platforms and has a powerful generator capable of sustaining the entire office in case of critical situations”.
The premises are divided into open spaces, separate rooms for teams, meeting rooms, and a spacious kitchen. Each conference room is named according to the company’s values: Care, Efficient, Smart, Open, and Flexible. The office windows offer a view of the High Castle and a beautiful city panorama.
“When choosing the office, we understood that we wanted to stay in the same area where we were before. Our long-term employees have become accustomed to this location, adjusted their children’s schools and kindergartens, and some even moved to this area to minimize their commute time within Lviv.”
Due to Russia’s war against Ukraine, all businesses in Ukraine have suffered, and Leobit was no exception. Although the company was unable to grow as dynamically as in previous years, it managed to preserve its most important asset—the team. This became the main focus of the company’s activities, along with active volunteering.
“That’s the only way to stay afloat. We donate to the Sergiy Prytula Foundation, Sergiy Sternenko Foundation, ‘Come Back Alive’ Foundation, provide financial support to the City Clinical Hospital No. 8 of the Dnipro City Council, and assist the ‘Good Heart’ children’s home in Busk— which are just a part of the charitable initiatives in which Leobit participates.”
“We remain in Ukraine, working here, hiring Ukrainian specialists for our team, supporting the country’s economy, and supporting charitable projects. We do this because we want to stay here, build families, raise children, and help our country recover from the war. At the opening of the new office, we held a charity auction, collected donations from our employees, and then doubled the amount raised. We managed to collect 1 million hryvnias, which will go to the IT Cluster project ‘Mental Health for Kids’ and the Shark drones project. Together towards victory!”
