The Top Employers Institute certifies organisations on their HR policies and practices. The company has existed for over 30 years and in 2023, we certified over 2000 organisations in 121 countries.
Top Employers already has a presence for many years in the Nordics. For the past two years, we have had a dedicated team focusing on the Nordics, specifically Sweden, and Denmark. Currently, 19 organisations in Sweden are certified as Top Employers, and we look forward to growing this number in the upcoming year.
We organised multiple workshops with our participants in Sweden about relevant HR topics last year. In 2023 we will continue doing so and further expand our footprint in the Nordics.
Do you have a personal relationship with the Nordics?
Professionally the Nordic region is relatively new for me. I had the privilege to work with some of our global participants in the past who also had a presence in the Nordics. This last year I had the privilege to travel to Sweden multiple times.
Privately I traveled to both Denmark and Finland in the past. I enjoyed Copenhagen a lot, but seeing the Northern lights is one of the most breathtaking things I have ever experienced!
What are the expectations of your membership?
We feel that we can bring a lot of (HR)knowledge to the table and hope to learn a lot from the other members. I strongly believe in co-creating. Together it is much more convenient to reach (common) goals. I am also eager to learn more about doing business in the Nordics. It is great to hear more about the successes, but we can also learn massively about the failures.
What can other members expect from Top Employers?
We love to share knowledge! Our benchmark has data from more than 2000 companies on more than 300 HR policies and practices.
Our HR community is strong and always eager to get in touch with other organisations willing to connect.
Members interested in joining the Top Employers program can expect consolidated HR benchmark data and an opportunity to position themselves as excellent employer in the Swedish market.
