Sympa pioneers fully paperless HR with Scrive and DocuSign


Sympa has become the first HR technology company to work with two leading global eSignature providers DocuSign and Scrive, in order to deliver completely digital HR processes.

By partnering with Scrive and DocuSign, Sympa will give companies of all sizes the ability to implement eSignature capabilities at a price point and feature level that suits them best.

“We’re both truly digitalising HR and providing a premium experience to the user,” says Sympa CEO Keijo Karjalainen. “eSignatures remove the last obstacle to fast, smooth, digital HR: the time-consuming need to constantly send papers and files to different people so they can be processed.

“In an age where your next employee may be in Bangalore or Bogotá, eSignatures dramatically speed up the process of getting a new hire in place. Also, today’s workforce of digi-natives is increasingly comfortable with fully digital solutions. Quaint, analogue practices (such as postage stamps) are starting to look archaic,” he concluded.

eSignatures offer a secure, legally-binding, digital alternative to the traditional pen and ink signatures that give digital documents legal standing, such as employment contracts. By partnering with Scrive and DocuSign, Sympa lets companies operate paper-free HR processes, approve documents in minutes instead of hours, improve HR data handling accuracy, and remove the need to handle vast archives of documentation.

“We are excited about having a partner like Sympa,” says Scrive CEO Viktor Wrede. “Sympa’s vision of offering fully-digitalised HR processes conveniently, efficiently and securely aligns perfectly with Scrive’s mission. Customers doing business in Northern Europe can rely on Scrive’s robust data privacy protections and suite of eIDs for the Nordics, Benelux and Germany.”  

“We are truly excited about this partnership,” says DocuSign Partner Success Manager, Daniela Honcu“Our partnership with Sympa will bring modern HR technology opportunities to over 700 organisations every week. eSignature is an essential part of modern HR, and through Sympa’s HR solution, we can help hundreds of thousands of people work smarter, quicker, and easier.”

Founded in 2005 in Finland, family-owned Sympa helps organisations nurture the development of their employees, operate more efficiently, and make smarter strategic decisions through its range of fully digital HR solutions. With one of the highest customer satisfaction rates in HR technology in Europe, Sympa is also the fastest growing HR solution provider in the Nordics.
