WHY BEYONDO

More than a CV:

For us, a CV is merely a snapshot, not the complete picture.

In a recent case, a client initially expressed reservations about a candidate's resume. However, we continued to emphasize how the candidate could bring substantial value to their team. As a result, the client decided to interview the candidate, ultimately leading to a successful hire. We are dedicated to uncovering the full potential of candidates and ensuring they align perfectly with your organization's needs and culture. 

Tackling Unconscious Bias:

Our very foundation lies in a simple observation: All around the world, talented individuals face career impediments due to unconscious biases. They're underrepresented, undervalued, or simply unnoticed. This is not only an injustice – it's a loss for the companies that could have benefited from their talent. That is why as a recruitment company, our core purpose is to provide objective and unbiased advice to bridge this gap and empower both candidates and companies.

We're all about building real human connections. We're proud of our open approach, where we constantly question the usual way of doing things to make sure we find the best person for the job. 

A commitment to Inclusion: 

At the heart of our operations is a commitment to fostering diversity. We're not just advocates of a diverse workforce – we're practitioners.
 
We had a candidate with an non-traditional background who might have been overlooked by local recruitment practices. We took the time to thoroughly understand their unique strengths and how they could bring a fresh perspective to our client's team. Through our advocacy, the candidate not only secured an interview but also received an offer, ultimately making a significant impact on the company's business.
 
We're all about commitment. It's not just meeting expectations; it's exceeding them, setting higher standards, and forging new paths. At Beyondo, we focus on a candidate's skills, not their name, to ensure fairness.

Comprehensive, customized and client-focused

 
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN YOUR COMPANY AND INTERNATIONAL TALENT

To attract international talent and seize opportunities in Sweden, successful recruitment demands a combination of universal practices, cultural awareness, and a deep understanding of the local legal and professional landscape. This approach is not confined to Sweden; it resonates globally.

 

Essential qualities and practices for recruiting international talent:

  • Understanding of local work culture and values.
  • Knowledge of local (Swedish) Labor Laws and Immigration Rules
  • Multilingual capability
  • Global networking skills
  • Adaptability
  • Cultural sensitivity and inclusivity
  • Strong marketing and Employer Branding
  • Comprehensive support
  • Effective use of technology
  • Open communication
  • Continuous learning
  • Partnerships with (Swedish) Universities

 

 

Understanding of Swedish work culture and values: 

Sweden is known for its flat organizational structures, consensus-based decision-making, and a strong work-life balance. A good recruiter needs to understand these cultural nuances to both present Sweden attractively to potential talents and ensure that those talents are a good fit for Swedish workplaces. It is also necessary to have knowledge of Swedish Labor Laws and Immigration Rules. This includes understanding work permit requirements, visa processes, and other regulations for employing international talents.

While many Swedes speak English fluently, being able to communicate in Swedish can be a huge advantage, especially when dealing with local agencies or stakeholders. Additionally, proficiency in other languages can be beneficial depending on the regions from which you're recruiting.

Our recruiters have an extensive network that spans multiple countries and industries, making it easier to identify and connect with top international talents.

Recognizing, respecting, and valuing differences is crucial, our recruites are not only be aware of the cultural differences but also be trained in implicit bias and cross-cultural communication.

Our recruiters,  have a good sense of being commercial minded and understanding employer branding. Selling both the role and the benefits of living and working in Sweden can be pivotal. This involves highlighting aspects like quality of life, social benefits, educational opportunities, and the progressive nature of Swedish workplaces.

Offering support with relocation, integration, housing, and even understanding the Swedish social and cultural scene can be instrumental in making the recruitment process smoother for international talents.

Understanding of the Swedish Education and Qualification System:

This can help in equating qualifications from other countries to the Swedish standard.

Keeping open lines of communication with candidates is essential, especially since international recruitment might involve longer timelines due to logistical reasons.

Many universities in Sweden have international students who might be looking for opportunities to stay and work in the country after graduation. Building relationships with these institutions can be a great source of skilled talent.
