Mitt Liv and Duni have created a partnership that aims to enhance Duni’s work on diversity. The partnership enables Duni's employees to participate in Mitt Liv's mentorship programme, Mitt Livs Chans. During the first year of the partnership, Duni has contributed with 8 mentors in Mitt Livs Chans. Recognizing that many top talents can be found in the program, Duni has taken action and hired 4 Mitt Livs Chans alumni at their headquarters in Malmö.
Mitt Liv meets three of the alumnis who has secured jobs at Duni; Sherif Atef, Vaishali Teke Kharade and Mark Atkins.
"Through Mitt Liv and my mentor I landed my first job here at Duni. It's a great programme and it helps people to integrate into the society and the Swedish labour market," says Sherif who now works as Business Controller at Duni.
"The program was really active. It helped me with broadening my network, refining my LinkedIn profile and improving my Swedish language skills," Vaishali adds. Vaishali started her career at Duni last year wity a temporary employment and has now secured a permanent role as Supply Chain Planner and Analyst.
Another alumnus who is now a part of Duni is Mark Atkins. Marks has more than 10 years of experience in communications and public relations and is now working with the in-house agency department.
""I was really fortunate to be paired up with Johan Mårtensson who is the head of innovation at Duni as my mentor. Together we worked on what was lacking from my understanding of the Swedish job market," says Mark when asked about the benefit of joining Mitt Livs Chans mentorship programme.
As an international company with a presence in 40 markets around the world, Duni understands the link between diversity and profitability.
"I really want Duni and Mitt Liv to continue this collaboration. Duni will supply the mentorship programme with more mentors and I hope Mitt Livs can provide us with more international top talents," says Sofie Lindström, HR Director at Duni group.
