This year, Stretch was placed 16th on the list for Sweden’s medium-sized businesses; this category has most the highest number of participating companies, and despite the steep competition, we had our best results ever:
- 96% of our employees responded to the ‘Great Place to Work’ survey;
- 98% of our employees said that the statement «All in all, I would say that Stretch is a great place to work» is true.
According to Great Place to Work®, the final list of winners are all successful in creating genuine trust and a sustainable approach between the leaders and employees in their respective organizations. For Stretch, the overall result is awesome and one that we are very proud of!
It is with pride and pleasure that I accept this award. I’m not surprised, but very happy. The key to our success is that we consciously and continuously work with our culture and our core values. We believe in a close dialogue and working as one team in everything we do. To be the most attractive workplace is one of our group strategies, and this award shows that we are doing a great job.

Malin was also nominated for a special prize at the Great Place to Work award ceremony for inspiring leadership within Stretch. The justification for her nomination for the Inspiring leadership 2016 award was:
Malin leads Stretch with a long-term focus on developing and maintaining a workplace culture, where proximity and a true understanding of the customer’s everyday life is key to success. Her dedication for the company is based on the core values, leading to a close dialog and understanding of the customer’s day to day activities – an important part of a sharp delivery.

The winner of the award for Inspirational Leadership 2016 was Jonas Elgquist, CEO of B3IT, and Stretch would like to congratulate him on this prestigious award.
In addition to Stretch companies in Sweden, our companies in Norway and Denmark also participated in the Great Place to Work® survey; these companies also had results that were as great as the one in Sweden. Our Scandinavian expansion is proof that our unique culture also works in our neighboring countries. Our journey continues and we hope you will be a part of it – as a customer or an employee.
