Our sustainability work

Our social commitment must be able to be measured by the imprint it gives on society. We work with different initiatives in the labor market and can in many cases demonstrate positive effects both for individuals and for the business community. We believe that all individuals have the right to their own livelihood and we do more than to just speak about it. We give people jobs, which gives individuals the opportunity to support themselves and their families. Every year, 20,000 people in Sweden are provided with jobs through us.
