More than five years ago, Karin Björkman successfully founded the Swedish chapter of Undutchables, an offshoot of the Dutch recruitment agency, who was her employer in the Netherlands, to focus on recruitment of internationals on the Swedish market. With more than fifteen years of recruitment experience working for Undutchables in the Netherlands, Karin was keen to bring the unique Undutchable approach to her home country of Sweden. Now, it is time for a new chapter in her story.
New company name, same values - differentiated from the rest.
“We will now continue under the new Beyondo flag, but other than that not much will change!” says Karin Björkman, Founder of Beyondo.
Beyondo will work to improve Swedish access to highly qualified and diverse international experience. A part of the workforce often overlooked when companies favor hiring people from their own network, or own frame of reference.
“What drives us, is the power of inclusion. You should be able to just be you, and do. Hence the name” says Karin.
“Looking beyond your own network, your own frame of reference when hiring, will ultimately serve as a force multiplier and future proofing of your company. It strengthens your business and the people in it, when you hire from diverse and international backgrounds.
“They say great minds think alike, I think that’s probably wrong. Great minds think differently. And you need more than one perspective on your decisions. The people who can provide this wider set of competencies, are the people we’re looking to bring you.” she continues.
Successful Swedish chapter
The past 5 years, working as a branch of Undutchables, have been very successful but also showed that the needs of the different markets are different. Both companies have now agreed in the friendliest way that Undutchables Sweden will continue under a new name, Beyondo.
Forever grateful to Undutchables
- Undutchables has been a great company to work for. I’m grateful for the fantastic years together with them, all the great people I have worked with and the great opportunity that Undutchables offered me. They believed in me and made it possible for me to set up my own company, under their flag, in my homeland. For that I will be forever grateful” says Karin Björkman
- A big thank you to all of my Undutchable colleagues! I am sure we all will stay in touch!
I am confident we will continue the work together, says Undutchables General Manager.
Nick van der Dussen (owner and General Manager of Undutchables Recruitment Agency BV:
Karin has done an excellent job establishing as an international recruitment specialist on the Swedish market. I am wishing her the very best for the future and am confident that the 2 companies will continue to work together on challenging recruitment cases.
