Christoffer Lejon, Business Manager

The United States is a key strategic market for the ALTEN Group, and it is expanding steadily through both organic growth and acquisitions. As for any consulting company, having motivated employees with the right competence is crucial, so an appealing work environment is a necessity in order to attract the best talent.

“What we managed to achieve with our engineering office in Greensboro, NC, is something like an incubator for knowledge. An environment with a lot of people with a lot of accumulated knowledge and an environment where there are no stupid questions.”

Erik Wargh, Technical Unit Manager

Since their establishment in the United States, XDIN has given hundreds of Swedes the opportunity to work abroad. Thus, they have a well-established process for overseas recruitment and they are happy to advise other members of the SACC network who are planning on hiring Swedish professionals.
