Organisational development project
Future Media Group (FMG) was founded in 2013 and has since then worked closely with several of Sweden’s and Norway’s largest publishers and media companies. Their core expertise lies in marketing, media, content, concepts, and events. They specialise in creating promotional products that can easily be integrated into existing product or service. In recent years, the major focus has been on developing new digital products and media solutions.
FMG has been working hard on their company culture and was now faced with the challenge of strengthening its Employer Brand. Their goal was to become an even better employer and attract new colleagues. To do that they not only needed to focus on the existing culture, but also look at what they could do to become even better, both as an employer and as a place to work. They also wanted to understand how they could attract new employees through various activities.
In order to find a clear plan on how to strengthen the Employer Brand, FMG needed expertise in organisational development and hired Sweden HR group to help with structure, process, and implementation.
