Focus on competence supply

Fast technical development in combination with new consumer behaviours is changing the talent needs. Competition for the right talent and skills is tough and to enable increased internal mobility, ICA Gruppen is working actively to identify the potential of existing employees, support their learning journey and find new opportunities for development within ICA. The purpose is to ensure access to critical talent and also to be able to offer existing employees new development and career opportunities.

One element towards becoming more self-sufficient in critical skills is the Greenhouse initiative launched in 2022. During the year a first pilot project was carried out with a focus on IT and Technology competences. The purpose was to attract individuals with potential and who, under the right conditions, can grow into new and/or more complex roles. The Greenhouse concept will now be further developed and scaled up to help ensure access to critical talent in various areas.
