The Swedish Chamber HR Forum is now live!

As requested by our members, we have now activated the HR Forum and held our first inaugural event with almost 30 participants on 27th of January with a workshop on "Key Learnings from the Pandemic". Three HR Managers from our member companies, representing different sectors discussed challenges and shared their experiences, gained during 2020 due to the pandemics, in the frame of an online panel discussion.

The panelists were:

  • Zoltán Könczöl, Country HR Manager at Electrolux,
  • Eva Mengs, People and Culture Manager, IKEA CZHUSK,
  • Alexandra Sáfár-Vincze, People Business Partner Hungary at Ericsson

The session was moderated by Márta Böddi, Secretary General, Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hungary 

During the workshop we had the opportunity among others to hear that all 3 companies started the preparations long before the local regulations, based on their international experiences. We can proudly say that they made much more than it was obligatory, in order to protect and support their employees and customers as much as they could.  One of the key learning was that their managers acknowledged that online processes and working methodologies performed much better than expected. 

Next step:
The Swedish Chamber intends to continue the discussions within the HR Forum and we are open towards ideas for topics to discuss or what areas you are interested in more details. We suggest to establish an HR working group which will take an active part in setting the path forward of the Swedish HR Forum, together with the Secretariat. It is up to us how we utilize our joint forces!
