Welcome to Planet Bridge
the bridge to the Swedish market
A safer way to the Swedish market
Starting up in a new market is an exciting opportunity, but also involves risks that should be avoided and challenges that must be overcome when people, products and services face a different culture, different purchasing patterns and new legal conditions.
We at Planet Bridge know the Swedish market and culture and we have extensive experience of entrepreneurship, recruitment and leadership in Sweden and internationally. Add to that a large network of skilled advisors in important areas.
Planet Bridge helps your company succeed with its establishment in the Swedish market.
Preparation & Establishment
A clear and safe path to a successful establishment
Starting a business in a new market involves both opportunities and risks. Depending on the product and/or service, the nature and complexity of the business, the start-up period may vary.
We recommend a start-up where important personnel for the business have been established and basic processes, agreements and calculations are secured before expansion takes place. Once the business is stable and the processes are in place, an expansion can take place both quickly and profitably.
Our concept, combined with our experience and knowledge of running a business and leadership, offers a safer path to success for you who want to establish a company in the Swedish market.
- Development of a schedule and target picture as well as mapping of the market
- The start of the business with the establishment of key people, processes and agreements, etc.
- Follow-up, coaching and business development with the goal of creating a stable and profitable business
Recruitment & Onboarding
Your professional partner in recruitment and onboarding
Good personnel is a crucial success factor. Especially when the company is in a foreign market.
To give the company and the new employee the best possible conditions for success, we offer a recruitment and onboarding process that goes further and deeper than most recruitment assignments do.
Before the recruiting begins, basic conditions are ensured to give the new employee a good base to start from. The recruitment process is based on a jointly developed profile. The process takes place in several stages, with the goal of presenting three to five candidates for final interviews with representatives of the company.
Once the position has been filled, we offer coaching for a shorter or longer period of time, to ensure a successful boarding. The assignments are adapted to be in line with specific target images and other activities.
- The basis is secured and a profile and service description is produced
- Recruitment process and employment
- Follow-up and coaching towards the agreed goal picture
Coaching & Training
We develop the potential of your employees
Planet Bridge offers coaching and development according to a process where the key employee develops in his personal leadership in parallel with the work towards achieving the company’s set overall goals.
The process helps individuals and businesses to set and achieve meaningful goals. The probability that the company achieves its goals, at the same time as the individual develops, increases significantly in comparison with independent programs. The process is also excellent for the development of entire teams in parallel with the individuals developing their abilities. The method gives the individual important insights into how to gain control over their situation in the company or organization and in life as a whole, while providing motivation and creating productivity. The process can significantly simplify and secure a company’s establishment of newly hired staff in a market new to the company.
Planet Bridge also offers independent programs, trainings and lectures in business development, goal management, value-driven leadership, team development, motivation and sales.
