Leader in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
This work was primarily carried out by increasing diversity in Swedish workplaces and through extensive change management in the form of lectures related to the subject: Diversity and increased business. Seminars and workshops were held for corporate management, municipal councils, executive teams, leading politicians, and business leaders.
There were also a large number of HR-related events and a high presence in the media, including appearances on TV, interviews in newspapers, books, radio, and news broadcasts on TV. Ivan also served as an advisor in developing guidelines for effective entry into the Swedish labor market for the government.
During the years of its operation, the work was praised in books and through a series of awards and nominations.
Many recruitment companies have adopted the models created by Blatteförmedlingen, and we are very happy about this, as diversity in Swedish workplaces has now become the norm.
We bring a diversity perspective to every recruitment assignment, with the following arguments:
Diversity is profitable, as it increases companies' ability to understand, attract, and effectively serve the entire market.
Diversity increases companies' innovative power, competitiveness, and reduces the risk of stagnation.
We primarily assess our candidates' abilities based on their performance with previous employers, their ability to present themselves and their delivery, as well as a number of other factors related to the specific recruitment assignment. Of course, we also conduct reference checks in all of our assignments.
Approximately 30% of the candidates we provide have a foreign-sounding dialect or name, and so far, none of our clients have seen any problem with that. On the contrary, it is often seen as an asset.
