Operational and strategic HR support
Mellanskog is an economic association founded in 1906 and is currently owned by 27,000 forest owners. Its main task is to represent private family forestry and to provide forestry services tailored to the needs of forest owners. For example through advice, price negotiations, forestry activities and more. Mellanskog also works in the field of industrial policy, often in cooperation with other forest owners’ associations and LRF Skogsägarna. Today, Mellanskog has over 240 employees and its head office is located in Uppsala.
Mellanskog’s HR department faced new challenges in competence management, which created more work tasks. In order to manage all HR details, they needed operational and strategic HR support and hired Sweden HR group.

In the assignment with Mellanskog, we have acted as operational and strategic HR support within competence management with a focus on competence-based recruitment. This means that we have supported Mellanskog in attracting and recruiting the right people to meet the staffing needs of the business today and in the long term.
We at Sweden HR-group have contributed to an agile, competency-based and data-driven methodology to best support managers and the management team in recruitment. In a structured way, we have driven recruitment processes with a focus on finding the right skills, while ensuring that ethical as well as legal guidelines are followed.
We have adapted to the client’s existing working methods, but at the same time we have dared to challenge ourselves and come up with new perspectives and suggestions for working methods. Conditions, needs and circumstances change rapidly today. This requires us to be responsive and adapt our work to optimise the conditions for the client.
