We Say HEJ was founded in August 2019 by Hanne Gerhards & Jennifer Reinhard. HEJ (pronounced ‘Hi’) means ‘Hello’ in Danish and stands for connection. Seeing first-hand that teams were not reaching their full potential because of a lack of connection between members, they created HEJ with a mission to connect people to make impact together. 





HEJ believes that feeling connected at work is a great business case. When people feel heard and seen, they produce better results. HEJ helps organisations to create a we-are-in-this-together mentality that increases happiness, and helps companies to become more productive. It all starts with a simple hello. That’s why we say HEJ.
