Orkla has been named the best in its industry in Universum’s ranking of Norway’s most attractive employers.

“We’re very proud of this result. I think the reason we score so highly is that many people see that we can offer a wide range of job opportunities. Orkla owns its entire value chain from A to Z. That means that we can offer different career paths and ample opportunities for further development. Corporate responsibility is high on Orkla’s agenda; it’s important to us and to jobseekers. Orkla is a successful company that can demonstrate good results. We have strong specialised departments staffed by many competent employees. In short, we’re a winning team that cultivates talent, diversity and teamwork. Jobseekers are attracted by these qualities,” says Hege Aamotsmo, HR Director at Orkla Confectionery & Snacks.

Orkla is part of the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry. The second and third place in the FMCG industry went to L’Oreal and TINE, while Coca-Cola was ranked in fourth place.

Orkla places 17th when business professionals are asked to choose Norway’s best employer among all industries. The three highest places were awarded to DNB, Innovasjon Norge and Google.

Universum is an international enterprise that specialises in Employer Branding. The Universum Top 100 is based on the Universum Professional survey, which is conducted among persons working in business, technology, law, data/IT and the humanities all over Norway. The survey focuses on four areas: the employer’s reputation, people and culture, salaries and possibilities of promotion, and work responsibilities. This is the 13th year in a row that employed graduates respond to questions concerning their expectations of working life, their career and potential employers.
