by HRD Connect | Report

Handelsbanken may be celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, but the Swedish-headquartered bank continues to evolve. In fact, it has used the challenge of Covid-19 to embrace a new, agile way of working, predicated on inter-connected teams, virtual technologies and a commitment to continuous transformation.

How have teams become more closely aligned? In what ways has the company harnessed the potential of automation? Plus, how is Handelsbanken now better equipped to deal with tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities?

Here we examine Handelsbanken’s fundamental shift in methodology and what it has meant for the company.
