We guarantee safety

ISAE 3402 is an international standard used for high assurance audit and assurance engagements on controls at service providers, including IT service providers.

Being GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliant means that we as a company comply with the rules and regulations set out in the GDPR. GDPR is a European law that aims to protect privacy and manage the processing of personal data. To be GDPR compliant, a company or organization must implement appropriate security measures, maintain transparency on how personal data is processed, and obtain consent from individuals before processing their data.

We use Microsoft’s data center.
Having data centers in Europe has several advantages. Firstly, it ensures compliance with strict data protection laws, such as GDPR, that protect individual privacy and provide control over personal information. In addition, geographical proximity to users in Europe reduces latency, resulting in faster data transfer and improved performance of online services. Finally, it strengthens Europe’s digital sovereignty by keeping data within the region, which can contribute to increased security and independence.

Yesterday, Tuesday, the Danish Parliament decided that all companies and their employees must register working hours. Every day. All week long. All year round. In silent protest, Taastrup-based IT company MyDesk is today launching a free application to help businesses and employees.

The new rules on mandatory recording of working time are a consequence of an EU ruling from 2019. The CJEU ruled that all working hours must be recorded on an individual and daily basis. Data must also be stored for at least five years. The registration must ensure that employees have at least 11 consecutive hours without work, a working week of no more than 48 hours and at least one day off per week.

Compulsory time tracking has been heavily criticized in Denmark. The new law has been called a bomb under the Danish labor market, which is characterized by collective agreements, orderly conditions and, for many, a flourishing of flexible meeting times, working from home, etc.

"If forced time tracking is a bomb – then we’re the Rullemarie bomb squad. The EU and the Danish Parliament pull something akin to old-fashioned stamp cards over people’s heads – we make it so simple to clock in and out. We realized pretty early on that the new rules were coming. When we were done shaking our heads and shrugging our shoulders, we developed an application that targets the EU regulations that have now become Danish law. We call the application WorkTime, it’s free and there are no strings attached," says Henrik Jøhnk Kristensen, CEO and co-founder of MyDesk, which develops digital platforms for optimal utilization of office environments, canteens and meeting rooms.

According to calculations from the Danish Business Authority, mandatory time tracking will cost DKK 900 million annually in lost earnings if all employees spend 1 minute a day on time tracking. If time recording lasts 3 minutes, the loss is a whopping DKK 2.4 billion per year. The Danish Business Authority has also calculated that Danish companies will incur costs for new equipment equivalent to DKK 500-600 million.

"We believe that the DKK 600 million should stay in the companies. That’s why we don’t charge anything for WorkTime. The solution is free. To add insult to injury, it’s still unclear how exactly hours worked will be recorded and stored. Is an Excel sheet good enough? Is a notebook? With WorkTime, businesses and employees are worry-free. In practice, WorkTime works as an application where employees use their smartphone to record when they come in and when they leave. All companies in Denmark can make use of our free solution. All it requires is that the company fills out an online form and each employee then downloads the app. Then everyone is ready for the new reality, new daily routines and – most importantly – being with our colleagues and doing our jobs so we can produce and develop something that creates real value instead of burning money on bureaucracy," concludes Henrik Jøhnk Kristensen.

No strings attached, no trial period, no costs. Companies register on the website. Employees can then download the application and digitally record their meeting time and time off.
