Attract and retain international talent in Stockholm as an SDCN partner organization
Strengthen talent ROI and employer brand through a holistic career development academy and network for accompanying spouses and partners – helping them start well and settle in Stockholm.
Attracting – and retaining – international talent is a challenge faced by many organizations in Stockholm. TechSverige/Almega estimates 70 000 people will be missing from the IT sector alone in 2024.
International talent report that the welfare of their partners and families play a significant role in their decision to move to and stay in Stockholm. If your talent management strategy excludes career development for international partners, there’s a gap — a dual career gap. SDCN is here to help.
86%* report that it is very important to develop their own career and network independent of their partners’ employer
*based on a poll by SDCN amongst internationally-recruited talent in Stockholm.
Employees choosing to leave Stockholm not only has an adverse financial effect – leading to higher recruitment costs and project delays – but also affects the emotional wellbeing and performance of employees. In the long run, if you overlook the dual career gap, you also risk damaging your employer brand and future possibilities to recruit international talent.
By enabling two careers, you can boost employee performance and retention and contribute to your strategic business goals.
Through our unique collaboration with the city of Stockholm and its 18 universities, SDCN has supported hundreds of people starting their new life in Sweden.
Our proven methods focus on an intentional combination of:
tailored career tools
robust cultural resources
Members of SDCN tend to be highly accomplished professionals, eager to pursue a career of their own in Stockholm. By partnering with SDCN, you also gain strategic access to this talent pool already located in/relocating to Sweden.
At SDCN, we also understand that the social dimension of a person’s life is just as important as their professional development. Through different social activities, SDCN members can meet other expats in situations similar to theirs, and share tips and experiences. This gives an excellent opportunity to build a social network of their own in Stockholm, independent of their partner’s social circle.
