Linköping University is once again among the most attractive employers in the country in a new survey and ranking of the 150 largest employers. After last year’s top ten position, LiU is in 17th place this year.

It was gratifying, and perhaps a little surprising, when LiU broke into the list of the most popular employers in the country with a tenth place overall. Remaining near the top in competition with companies like Spotify, IKEA and Sveriges Television, and achieving a 17th place, is an indication that LiU’s reputation as a good employer is well-founded.

“I’m proud and happy that we continue to be among Sweden’s best employers in the very good company of successful businesses and organisations. We were near the top last year when we came tenth, and now we’ve shown that was no one-off event,” says Director of Human Resources Pia Rundgren.
