EG is one of Scandinavia's leading IT service companies, which has been developing industry-specific solutions for more than 35 years, creating value for companies in a wide variety of industries.
"Throughout our years, we have been working to combine our deep industry knowledge with the right products and services, and with competent consultants with good business understanding. It has given us a strong market position and the potential to reach even further", says Tina Bodin, HR Director of the EC.
To support future innovation and growth, EG decided to launch their own internal academy at a Nordic level, that Readynez Academy has provided part of the recruitment and technical Microsoft training for. "We chose to let Readynez handle part of the recruitment, partly because it is an effective branding platform, but we were also curious to see what kind of profiles Readynez's name could add, and it has been an absolute positive experience "Says Tina Bodin.
One of the reasons why EG chose to add the young untested candidates into the company was their fundamental positive attitude towards the unique contributions to the business, that the young people bring. Tina Bodin says:
"They are free from the limitation of having tried everything before. They challenge our mindset, and they bring change to the part of the culture, which is more security-seeking than innovative."
In terms of how this mindset works with the experienced senior consultants, the experience is very positive with EG. "When we combine teams with the young people and our talented senior consultants, we see new knowledge emerge. Together, the two profiles can create something unique and therefore the senior consultants also benefit from working with the young candidates on projects. In order to create profitable growth and deliver top quality to customers, we as a company need both profiles. "
"In 12 months, they will be equal consultants and we expect that the majority of them, within a few years, will be among the best senior consultants."
In addition to contributing positively to innovation, the young new consultants are also expected to contribute specifically to revenue - quickly.
During the first 3 months they spend some time in training, but after that we have increasing expectations to their business contributions and after 12 months they are expected to contribute at the same level as an experienced consultant.
Months to 100% contribution
