Engagement in focus
Carnegie’s business is based on knowledge, trust, and client relationships, making employees our most important asset. Ensuring a high level of engagement among everyone who works at Carnegie is a particular priority.
Employees’ health and well-being are a priority. This even more in unfamiliar territory with shifting Covid-restrictions. Through internal measures we are continuously searching for the perfect hybrid solution for a leading investment bank.
The employees enjoy an in-house gym, private fitness classes, as well as available padel-slots. In addition, Carnegie focuses on providing a range of social initiatives to support well-being at work. We are particularly proud of our young professionals’ network with regular meetups for almost 40 employees under 30 years across all departments.
Carnegie needs to support employee development and a knowledge-oriented work environment. Development is ensured by mandatory training within crucial matters such as market abuse directive, anti-money laundry, and sustainability. In addition, cross-border seminars are facilitated to encourage strong business relationships across geographies, sectors, and products.
A breathing room from Covid-restrictions in 2021 made it possible to conduct a gathering for the global investment banking junior training seminar with more than 15 participants from Carnegie.
In addition, secondment in another Group entity is encouraged. In 2021, we have had an investment banker working in the Swedish office. This type of exchange program helps build personal development and strong business relationships.
Looking forward, Carnegie Professional Development (CPD) is an internal training program that will be implemented in 2022. CPD offers employee training in areas not directly connected to their daily work. The program allows employees to broaden their horizons while promoting continued individual development.
Taking the next step within HR
In 2021 Carnegie hired a new HR Business Partner to improve and professionalize the HR processes in the company. This has included strengthening the recruitment process, including search-based recruitment and headhunting, professionalization of our digital HR systems, and a stronger focus on our commitment to improving diversity and equality further. Carnegie’s employer branding strategy has also been a priority in 2021 and will be even more strengthened in 2022 with the hiring of our new brand manager.
