The three keys to care - digitalisation, training and recruitment
Fredrik Gren, CEO, Ambea
One of Sweden's largest care providers, Ambea has launched several radical innovations over the last three years. It has run a series of pilots covering all aspects of digitalisation and learnt what works and what doesn't. It has launched a for-profit institute which trained 10,000 people in aspects of care in the last year. Thirdly, it has launched radical programmes to engage 15-18 year old schoolchildren and to train new migrants to Sweden, adding 300-400 workers in the process. Fredrik goes through what Ambea has learnt from all this. How do you best use these three keys to build a care business?
