The Samhall story

Over the past 15 years Samhall has undergone a business transformation without comparison. What used to be an industrial company group, consisting of numerous sheltered workshops, is now Sweden’s foremost service provider, offering developing jobs to more than 25.000 people with disabilities.

Samhall is all about development through work. Real jobs that customers are prepared to pay for and that builds competitiveness for Samhall’s employees. By focusing on jobs that offers the most personal development for Samhall’s employees – and that are sustainable over time – Samhall has managed to create new ways to work by replacing jobs in sheltered workshops with mainstreamed jobs in the open labor market.

Monica Lingegård is the CEO of Samhall AB, a Swedish state-owned company assigned to provide meaningful and developing work for people with disabilities. Samhall is one of Sweden’s largest companies and succeeds in matching people with disabilities to real jobs through a unique matching method.

Monica has previously held positions as CEO of the international security solutions group G4S, CEO of the worldwide subscription agent Prenax and as cofounder and COO of managing consulting firm Intelligence. She is also a board member of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise and chair of the Swedish Space Corporation. Monica was appointed Swedish CEO of the year in 2015.
