Volvo Car Corporation is one of the world's most attractive employers
For the first time ever, Volvo Car Corporation has made it onto the list of the world's most attractive employers. The Universum survey reveals that Volvo Car Corporation is ranked 43rd among technology-based companies.
"This is great news for us. It's the joint result of all our employees' dedication, enthusiasm and hard work to make Volvo Car Corporation an even more vibrant company," says Björn Sällström, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Volvo Car Corporation.
The ranking is evidence that the company's drive to build its brand as an employer of choice has borne fruit.
The survey is based on responses from 144,000 economics and engineering students from the world's twelve largest economies, and is conducted every year by Universum.
"Volvo Car Corporation now steps right in among the big car-makers such as Daimler, Toyota and Volkswagen, showing that they are truly in the market for the best global talents," says Claes Peyron, Director Nordic Region at Universum.
One of this year's trends is that the automotive industry has generally become increasingly popular among engineering students. Seven of the 50 companies on the list are in the automotive sector.
"The students want to work in companies that offer attractive products and services, which is exactly what these companies do. What is more, they are global and have strong brands," says Claes Peyron.
Universum is a company that works with employer branding. The company's surveys are answered every year by 400,000 students and young academics the world over.
