Universum, the global leader in employer branding, has surveyed close to 22.000 young IT professionals about their selection of their future employers. We are proud to share that Schibsted has climbed in ranking in both Sweden and Norway!
The young professionals have responded to the survey between November 2021 – August 2022. The data collection was conducted via an online survey from the target group in 36 occupation groups, in 48 industries. In the survey the respondents answered questions like the most important employer attributes, the impact of remote work and more.
Ranking ideal employer
When the IT professionals in Norway rank the ideal employer, Schibsted ends up in a gratifying 10th place, from last year’s ranking at 12th place. On the corresponding Swedish list Schibsted ends up in 40th place, an impressive improvement from last year’s 48th place. One of the purposes of the solid list is to make it easier for professionals to find their next employer.
“Our main target group is, since a couple of years ago, tech talents, why most of our Employer Branding efforts have been in that area. Presence at conferences, internal and external events, dedicated tech career site, tech festival, Kids Coding Camp and much more. But most importantly, we have prioritised highlighting employee stories on our social media channels with the purpose of telling the authentic story about Schibsted as an employer. Our job is to showcase us as an attractive employer and we are of course super happy to see that our work has paid off and that more and more talents are finding their way to explore Schibsted”, says Lena Berlin Stålhammar, Director Employer Branding & Talent programs.
Empowering women in the tech industry
We are also proud to say that Schibsed is ranking in the right direction for both females and male talent.
At Schibsted, promoting a diverse tech industry is a question close to our hearts. Schibsted Shetech is a community where everyone is invited to meet, to learn and to discuss – all while together shaping the future of tech.
