Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.
I grew up outside the city of Katrineholm in Sweden with my family. We are a total of seven siblings, and we all have a good relationship today. I played both basketball and soccer growing up. At the age of 17 I moved to Norrköping, where I still live today. I live with my two children Rasmus, who is 8 years old, and Hampus, who is 5 years old.
What did you do before joining Gränges?
I studied Human Resources at Linköping University for three years, and I graduated as recently as June this year. At the same time as I studied, I worked with HR at the Swedish Maritime Administration in Norrköping, with a focus on the area of labor law. Prior to that, I worked in sales in the telecom industry.
Why did you start working for Gränges?
Above all, I was attracted by the challenge of working in a broad role with different areas, since I primarily worked with employment law before. I found it interesting to expand my skills in several areas and found the role as CEO assistant and HR generalist at Gränges both interesting and challenging.
What does an assistant & HR generalist do?
So far, I am familiar with the role as CEO assistant, where I will primarily support Fredrik Spens, MD at Grängea Finspång, in his work. I will also ensure the quality of Gränges' routines and policies regarding travel and expenses to digitize, streamline and, above all, create the right conditions for a user-friendly platform. In the fall I will be introduced to the HR role, which I am really looking forward to.
What makes Human Resources so interesting?
HR is a very broad area that permeates many parts of a business. It is everything from recruitment, employer branding and organizational development to work environment, to name a few areas.
