Talent attraction

FPL chosen for study on Sweden’s talent attraction


Future Place Leadership chosen for study on Sweden’s future talent attraction

We are honored and excited to have been chosen to carry out a feasibility study for one of the Swedish Government’s innovation partnership programmes.

The study has been commissioned by a working group on “Attract, integrate and retain talent”, with members such as Move to Gothenburg, Business Sweden, Spotify, and Volvo Cars. The working group is coordinated by the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries, and the study has been funded by Vinnova, Sweden’s Innovation Agency.

The working group, in turn, is a part of the innovation partnership programme on “Skills supply and lifelong learning”, which is one out a total of four programmes.

Our task is to propose recommendations for how the attraction and reception of international talent should be coordinated, organised and financed in Sweden in the future.

Project activities include interviewing stakeholders from government agencies, regions and employers, as well as studying international frontrunners in international talent attraction such as Canada, Denmark, Finland and the Netherlands.

About the innovation partnership programmes

The objective of the Government’s innovation partnership programmes is to identify innovative solutions to major challenges facing society and to contribute to Sweden’s competitiveness.

The themes are based on Sweden’s strengths and on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Climate neutral industry; Skills supply and lifelong learning; Digital transformation of industry; and Health and life sciences.

The innovation partnership programmes bring together small and large companies, universities and higher education institutions, civil society and public sector actors to jointly set priorities for what needs to be done to meet the challenges within the four themes.

In this project we provided a report, containing recommendations for how a new national coordination model for talent attraction management in Sweden could be set up.

This study includes an analysis of Sweden’s challenges and opportunities and who is doing what in talent attraction on the national and regional levels. It also comprises a benchmarking study of the talent attraction management models chosen by five countries: Finland, Denmark, Canada/Quebec, Estonia and the Netherlands.
