Nominated for the Showing the Way prize

Weland is nominated for the prestigious Visa Vägen prize. A prize that highlights employers and real enthusiasts who are working to open up the labour market to people with functional impairments. The winners will be presented at the Visa Vägen gala on the 20th of November.

The Visa Vägen prize is awarded by Samhall and it highlights those who stand up for people with functional impairments and are helping to breakdown their isolation on the labour market. The prize is divided into two categories: Employer of the Year and Enthusiast of the Year. This year, 272 employers and enthusiasts have been nominated, which is a record in the ten-year history of the prize. Weland is nominated for the prize Employer of the Year.

"It is incredibly flattering as an employer to receive attention in this context. Above all, because we have just been ourselves and the employer we always have been at Weland," Björn Henriksson, Deputy CEO at Weland AB, says.

This is the first time Weland has been nominated for the Visa Vägen prize. Björn Henriksson believes that the nomination could lead to several positive effects.

"Hopefully, the nomination can give traction to the projects we have together with Samhall. I hope it can help to spread awareness of Samhall, what they work with and how, as an employer, one can actually do good business and help the community at the same time," Björn Henriksson says.

Samhall provides Weland with staffing solutions where the workers, for various reasons, have found themselves far from the ordinary labour market. A collaboration about which Björn Henriksson has very positive opinions.

"We have the opportunity to get to know new people who probably wouldn't have managed to find their way to us by themselves. It enriches our operations and I hope we can continue with this. The first workers who came to us via Samhall are now employed by us," Björn Henriksson concludes.

The nominated employers and enthusiasts are now under review, and the Visa Vägen jury will choose three finalists in each prize category. The jury consists of chairman Jan Scherman and the members Isabella Löwengrip, Peje Emilsson, Eva Nordmark, Kenneth Bengtsson, Anna-Lena Bohm and Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson.

The winners will be presented at the Visa Vägen gala on the 20th of November at the Rival Theatre in Stockholm, a gala guested by Peter Forsberg and Petter Stordalen, among others.
