We were interested to see the current situation at the local authorities and at private companies in Helsingborg. We chose to interview people in the personnel management who are responsible for new recruitment both at the local authorities and at the companies. We analysed our results based on sociological theories and existing research. We came to the conclusions that both the local authorities and the companies look for professional qualifications when recruiting, but social skills are also considered as a main factor. Considering people with an immigrant background it seemed like knowledge in the Swedish language was a very important factor in the selection of a new employee. Diversity among the personnel was something that all the people that we interviewed were interested in but they generally considered that they have not reached their goal yet. (Less)
