HCL in Sweden

Companies in Sweden’s highly competitive economy are using information and communications technologies to develop new businesses and gain a competitive edge. In response, HCL has established bases in the cities of Stockholm (the company’s headquarters for the Nordic region since 1999), Gothenburg, and Helsingborg. As part of HCL’s commitment to the Nordic region, the company has had a legal entity and a collective labor agreement in Sweden since 2012.

Several principles at HCL’s core have contributed to the success of our engagements with clients such as IKEA, Electrolux, and Husqvarna Group:

  • Employees First. Our unique management philosophy, based on trust and transparency, empowers frontline employees to create value for customers every day. This thinking — described in the best-selling book Employees First, Customers Second: Turning ConventionalManagement Upside Down (Harvard Business Press, 2010), by former CEO Vineet Nayar — has created a distinctive culture of employee-driven innovation. We call it ideapreneurship, and it is yielding excellent business outcomes for both HCL and our customers.

  • Relationship Beyond the Contract. Technology is constantly changing, often making even the best contracts appear outdated or ill-conceived. That’s why at HCL we focus on developing relationships beyond the contract, not just by optimizing costs or enhancing efficiency but by thinking well into the future on behalf of our customers.  Alt-ASM — our alternative approach to managing applications — and Enterprise Function as a Service (EFaaS) — our integrated end-to-end proposition for IT and business services across business functions — are just two of several initiatives in this direction.

  • Global Delivery, Local Center of Gravity. “Think global, act local” drives our strategy for serving customers and partners in every region. Through global/local Centers of Excellence, the creation of talent pools in local markets, and the cultivation of an ecosystem of local and global partners for pioneering new propositions and delivery frameworks, HCL provides value to customers well beyond cost optimization.

As part of HCL’s commitment to building long-term relationships in the region, HCL has been addressing both business and societal issues in Sweden:

  • HCL’s Europe Customer Advisory Council: This collaborative forum consists of more than 30 CIOs who convene on a regular basis to help HCL align solutions with local market requirements and technology needs, creating more value for our customers. The Council also serves as an exceptional platform for HCL clients and their industry peers to exchange ideas and best practices. It has been recognized through several awards — including the IT Services Marketing Association (ITSMA) Diamond Award and the Forrester Groundswell Award in the B2B category — for the trust it fosters between HCL and its customers.

  • Enabling innovation for customers. HCL’s culture of transparency brings out the best in our employees, leading them to help clients grow and do business in new ways.

  • Diverse and inclusive workforce. No matter where they are located, HCL employees fit into our clients’ work environments. Through their extensive training in cross-cultural awareness and tools such as Globesmart, HCL employees build and sustain trusting and transparent business relationships based on mutual advantage.

  • Nurturing local talent. HCL supports Stockholm’s secondary schools through a yearlong program that teaches school principals about global business practices, social media, and business in India. We also support the faculty and students of Stockholm School of Economics, the Royal Institute of Technology, Uppsala University, and Stockholm University.

  • Empowering employees for success. HCL helps local employees find passion in their daily work and forge connections with those who have deep knowledge of the company, thus expanding the organization and inspiring all employees to excel.  HCL’s Nordic leaders have recently been recognized by Veckans Affärer and Computer Sweden for their commitment to providing innovative service.
