Swedish recruitment firm Bemannia has been named a Gazelle, denoting that the company is one of the fastest growing in Sweden. The award was given following careful research and analysis by daily business newspaper Dagens Industri.
Staffan Bruzelius, CEO of Bemannia, commented: “It feels really good that we are included in this positive group of Swedish companies. One of the reasons that we have been able to grow so quickly, is that we are more cost effective than our competitors and that we meet customers’ needs with quality.”
In order to qualify for Gazelle status, companies must meet strict criteria. Company revenue must be more than SEK 10 million (€1.16 million ) and the firm must employ at least 10 people. Company revenue must have increased for three consecutive years, and revenue in the third year must be double that of the first year.
The company is required to have reported an operating profit for four years. The company must also have grown organically and not be as a result of acquisitions or mergers. Sound finances are also a key requirement.
Staffan Bruzelius founded Bemannia in 2002 and the company has three service offerings; staffing, outsourcing, and recruitment.
“We see that there is a need to dare to think again and that the agency has an important part to play in the current and future labour market. At the very least, this fine award shows that both customers and employees appreciate what we stand for, and it will ensure that Bemannia will continue to evolve in a positive way,” he added.
