Scandic’s Disability Ambassador on CNN

Magnus Berglund has been Scandic’s Disability Ambassador for six years. Now his work has been featured on CNN which tell the story of a company that works actively on accessibility.

Six years ago, Magnus Berglund was disabled and just about discounted by the labour market. One day he came to Frank Fiskers, then head of Swedish operations at the hotel chain, and presented his idea of how Scandic could work more on accessibility at its hotels. And so it was that Magnus’s life took a new direction. This inspiring tale has now become a report on CNN World View. “This is fantastic proof that investing in accessibility brings benefits of all kinds. I’m extremely proud of both Magnus Berglund and Scandic,” comments Frank Fiskers, now President and CEO of Scandic.
