Karriärföretagen is a site targeting students and young professionals. They mediate job opportunities and highlight employers and rising talents through the Karriärföretagen and Career Scholarship awards. The Karriärföretagen award is given annually to the 100 employers who are considered to offer the best career and development opportunities. For the first time, Holmen has received the prestigious award. 

The jury's motivation for Holmen's award reads:

Holmen is one of the most sustainable companies we have seen, both in the corporate culture and outside. Through open and innovative communication, everyone is welcome and the heart is in the right place. Not only that, Holmen offers ex-jobs, aspirant and trainee services as well as summer jobs. Here, employees even get to blog about their work weeks, you do not get more transparency in the companies than that!

Gunilla Rolander, Senior Vice President HR at Holmen, sees the award as proof that we succeed in communicating what Holmen offers and our corporate culture in a way that reaches out.

“We obviously have the right communication strategy, well founded on the reality in Holmen. Our brand platform also helps us succeed in reaching out”, she says.

Holmen's socially sustainable culture and systematic work to attract great employees is something that the jury has taken note of.

“We encourage our employees to try different roles and work with sustainability at all levels, which we have communicated successfully. Sustainability is a very important issue for young people who are new to working life. Our truly sustainable business is something we are proud of, says Amanda Lindh, Employer Branding Manager at Holmen Paper.
