Short interview with Frida!
What are you working with today?
In August this year I started a new role at EMG as a Talent Manager. In this role I´m responsible for the hole employee journey, from attracting, recruiting, developing and exit. Within development, I´m also responsible for introducing new employees to the company.
Since summer my focus has been on recruitment since we had lots of new opportunities in the EMG Family. Now my focus is more within creating a pre-boarding process and make our onboarding process the best ever and easier for everyone, both new employees, interns and for managers in the organization. I´m also working with the digitalization of the recruitment process which I have been working on for a while now. Hopefully we will start with our new process in 2019.
Why do you think you became the employee of the month?
In August and mostly in September we had LOTS of recruitment. I believe it was a new record! We were looking for a Sales Manager, SEO Manager, Account Managers in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, UK and France and of course a bunch of Software Developers (since we are growing in our tech department).
Recruitment today is not only about waiting for applicants, you have to work with headhunting, contacting people and build up a network of potential candidates. This is something I have been working with really hard and now it has paid off and I´m so glad that our teams and managers got some new amazing co-workers to their teams.
The Employee of the month are given an amount to give away to charity. Who will you donate your money to?
I really love this part about being the employee of the month! I would like to donate my amount to CTO Contribution To Opportunities. Sofia and Jasmina who founded this nonprofit organisation where my classmates from my studies in Karlstad University. The organization is focusing on providing #TrueChange for children and youth in South Africa's townships. They help locals who are already involved in projects to provide better opportunities for future generations.
Did you do anything special this fall? :)
This fall couldn't have started better! I just came home from an amazing trip in Mallorca together with EMG. Later in October I´ll go to Lissabon to have a look at the European TeamGym Championships together with some of my relatives. Other than that we have lots of fun activities that are coming up in the office. Like the EMG Alumni After Work in November that I´m planning. In December we also have the Christmas Party that I´m looking forward to. I really believe this fall will be great!
