Lantmännen is appointed Talent Company of the Year – an award honoring a company’s ability to attract and develop talent.

Lantmännen has been awarded Talent Company of the Year 2019 - one of Sweden’s most prestigious talent management awards, celebrating employer branding, attraction, recruitment and talent development capabilities and qualities within an organization.

“We are happy and proud to receive this award, and it serves as proof that our long-term commitment to be an interesting employer that attracts and develops talent is the right way to go,” says Frida Tydén, Director Group Talent Development and Internal Communication at Lantmännen.

The prize was awarded by talent network 4Potentials at an event in Stockholm on February 13th. A total of 100 companies were considered, and this is the third time Lantmännen receives the award.

4Potential’s motivation:

“The winner of Talent Company of the Year 2019 is a company that is not only interested in being at the top, but is also driving the talent management area forward, both in the entire industry and in society as a whole.

Talent management is deeply ingrained from the management level throughout the entire organization, and the focus is not only on talent but on all people. They are well aware of their few remaining development areas and are working on them, which is obvious as they, year after year, have the ability to lift themselves - resulting in employees thriving and wanting to stay.

The company has succeeded in linking talent management to profitability in a completely natural way, thanks to a uniquely passionate HR director who leads a world-class organization. Trainee program, internships, growth programs and leadership development are always done in a sound and innovative way, taking responsibility for a sustainable leadership in the future.

You win because you have built a world-class organization based on the fact that HR and talent management are central processes linked to your financial goals and because you have the market’s leading players pushing the topics forward.”
