Community involvement

In long-term collaboration with our community partners, we are working to improve our industry and increase diversity and inclusion in society and business.

Dialogue and collaboration with social partners takes place with, among others, authorities (the Public Employment Services and Board of Education), organisations promoting diversity and integration (Mitt Liv, Mine, En Frisk Generation foundation, Telge Tillväxt and Diversity Charter Sweden) and trade associations (SFVF, MRF).

Mitt Liv

Mitt Liv – Increased integration contributes to growth and gives both companies and individuals opportunities to develop and grow. Such integration is something that we at Mekonomen work for when we want the Group’s organization to reflect the society in which we live.

The cooperation with Mitt Liv means that Mekonomen provides mentors to people with a foreign background with an academic education. Through such work, we take advantage of the expertise available, as well as offering and enabling people to work with something they are passionate about and enjoy.

“Mekonomen believes in the work that My Life conducts and that an integrated society creates prosperity and reduce inequality – a development and future scenario that we at Mekonomen gladly participate in”
