Sandvik and IBM attract students to the industry

Sandvik is mentoring high school students to encourage interest in technology and IT.

A group of students at Kista high school in Sweden is undergoing a mentor program held by Sandvik and IBM. The two companies share the same challenges in attracting future talent, and the purpose of the program is to encourage students to choose technology and IT as their main subject in upper secondary school.

"The students are a delightful group of people who are curious about us, our industry and the challenges we face," says Alexander Puekker, one of Sandvik's mentors. "Many of them are inspired by the possibility to work in a global and innovative environment, which both IBM and Sandvik can offer."
