Sweco aims to be the most attractive employer for consulting engineers and architects, with ample opportunities for professional and personal development in an international environment. Sweco’s goal is to be the preferred choice of potential employees, whether recent graduates or experienced consultants.
Employee development is essential for Sweco’s growth. All employee development should be focused on performance, expertise and knowledge sharing. This work is supported by the annual performance review, Sweco Talk.
Sweco’s client-driven organisation relies on strong and decentralised leadership. Strong leadership is promoted through the Sweco Leadership Compass, a framework that defines the company’s leadership culture and links together leadership with Sweco’s business culture. As a tool for ensuring effective management succession Sweco uses Next Generation, a process and program to continuously identify and develop good leaders.
