Kindred Receives Career Companies Of The Year Award From Swedish Organization

Kindred announced Thursday it has been awarded one of the Career Companies of the Year 2022 awards in Sweden by a unanimous panel of judges. Since 2011, the organization Karriärföretagen, at its “Stora Karriärdagen” ceremony, has granted this award “to companies offering their employees unique development and career opportunities.”

Kindred won the award for the Civil Engineers category. Criteria such as attractiveness as an employer in external measurements, presence and quality in social media, and the career pages on the company’s website, “weighed heavily” in the nomination process, according to the group.

At the beginning of 2022, Kindred was named as one of Sweden’s most attractive employers; and in September, Kindred was ranked fifth out of 173 companies in a survey among “young professionals” regarding their choice of a future employer, the gaming group noted.

On this latest recognition, Johan Engberg, Tech Employee Experience Lead for Kindred Group, expressed his pride to have been named Career Company of the Year and noted it is “a testament to the work we started more than four years ago with our Accelerate program, which looks to hire and support recently graduated engineers in their progress.”

— Kindred Group (@KindredGroup) October 6, 2022 “Out of the 21 employees who started the program in the last three years, 20 are still with Kindred. Attracting talent is important, but keeping them is maybe even more important,” he added.

“Kindred Group is an open and welcoming organization where there are great opportunities to feel the enjoyment of work, which speaks to a solid work with employer branding. Kindred Group is the perfect employer for junior and senior talents looking for an exciting career,” the nomination read. “With Johan Engberg at the helm, Kindred Group has taken numerous initiatives to make Kindred an attractive place to work. In light of this, Karriärföretagen names Kindred Group Career Company of the Year.”
