We intend to take responsibility in the communities where we do business.
Sponsor of Fryshuset
To contribute to society while simultaneously improving diversity across the real estate sector, Kungsleden is partnering with youth charity Fryshuset. We participate in activities like mentoring for youth and is part of the jury for "Sveriges Ungdomsentreprenör" - a meaningful initiative that inspires, supports and encourages youth to fulfil their dreams. In 2018, we offered six young people summer placements through subcontractors within management in Gothenburg, in partnership with Fryshuset.
The Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA)
Kungsleden is participating in IVA´s "Jobbsprånget" - a placement program for graduates who have recently immigrated. During 2019 we will offer placement to at least one technical manager.
Learning at work (LIA)
Guidelines for LIA places from vocational institutes were prepared in 2018, and Kungsleden is in contact with several of these schools to create partnerships.
Kungsleden has started working with Altitude Meetings, a tenant in STUDIO in Malmö, to help talented young people become the leaders of tomorrow. This new programme - Altitude Academy - offers free leadership training and networking for young people who want to change the world.
Kungsledens`s professionals are highly committed
During 2018 our professionals participated in the collection of spectacles for donation to Bolivia with Synsam and Opticians without Borders, Christmas gifts for the Salvation Army´s seasonal initiative for children and gifts for children through the City Mission at Story Hotel in Malmö.
Fryshuset presented their project "Barn till ensamma mammor" (children of single mums) to provide information and encourage engagement from our staff. A clothing donation event was then arranged with this organisation, where Kungsleden staff volunteered.
