Solar is the land of can-do. Respect and professionalism are the main ingredients in our way of working, which is probably one of the reasons why we’re not easy to leave.

Gender diverse teams give better results and a variety of talents
Having both men and women in their team, the OEM Industry Sales department in Solar in Sweden has better dynamics and more diversified talent. Attracting women to male-dominated jobs requires new ways, according to their experience.
"It's not a matter of hiring the most qualified - it's about hiring the most qualified talent," says Robert Nord. He is Manager for the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Industry Sales team in Solar in Sweden. His team consists of 1/3 women, and top sellers at that – in a business area that is usually occupied by men.
An investment in the future: Solar trains SAP specialists
It can be hard to find the employees you need. Competition for SAP personnel is fierce. The typical SAP specialist is aged 50-55, which means there will be a severe shortage in the market within a few years.
This made us create our own SAP trainee programme. A generational shift is coming, so this is among other things a sound investment in the future.
We are a leading European sourcing and services company mainly within electrical, heating and plumbing, ventilation and climate and energy solutions. Our logo might be blue, but we have a keen eye for the green solutions.
Christina Liljegren is Solar’s Head of Internal Audit and responsible for establishing strong and efficient audit processes that support the execution of the company’s strategy. She has two team members and reports to the company’s board. Among other things, Internal Audit supports standardisation and digitalisation of accounting controls and performs audits of Solar’s CO2 and risk reporting. Christina loves the variety in the job, which involves some travelling. Visiting the branches and meeting colleagues from across the company is one of the things that Christina enjoys the most. This is also where she finds inspiration for standards that can be implemented across the group. She finds Solar to be a professional company with a welcoming atmosphere and traditional values such as mutual respect and decency. There is a good mix of people, who strive for continuous improvements, which is also Christina’s focus. She would never control anything just for the sake of control – it has to make sense. When not acting out her passion for audit strategy at work, she spends her time in nature – hiking, kayaking or enjoying her garden. She also teaches swimming lessons to adults with hydrophobia and finds it very rewarding when her students succeed.
Claus Stenager Jensen
As Group Senior Category Manager, Claus Stenager Jensen is responsible for making sure that we offer our customers the best possible range of products and services within the cable & cable management category across the Solar Group. He believes that collaboration is the key to obtaining this goal, and he is pleased to see synergies arising across departments and borders, making us stronger together. He experiences a certain form of unity in Solar. You always know that your colleagues are there to help you. Also, he appreciates the way new ideas are received and how quickly words can be turned into action. At the end of the day, what motivates him is to see our customers’ appreciation for the improvements and initiatives that the team is working with. Cables and cable management is Claus’ passion, and at Solar, he is able to work with the area in a very broad sense, meaning anything from sourcing and supplier collaboration over product management to digital sales. In contrast to the very digital nature of his work and being in an office all day, Claus enjoys outdoor activities like hiking and camping with his family and has ‘sort of’ become addicted to going hunting since getting his hunting permit a couple of years ago😊
Jacob Nordquist Horn
Jacob Nordquist Horn is Commercial Service Manager at Solar. He drives the development of Solar’s portfolio of services for our customers. He is particularly proud of the equipment rental platform, Solar Rental, which he has developed together with our partner NetHire. The platform provides the contractors with the possibility to rent tools that they don’t use very often or equipment that is really expensive to buy. At the same time, the contractors that own the equipment can make some extra money on renting it out instead of it collecting dust in the stockroom. This form of sharing economy is a win-win solution, which Jacob believes that we will see much more of in the B2B segment the coming years. He has especially enjoyed being part of the journey from the idea being born to launching a fully fledged solution that creates value for our customers every day. Jacob is motivated by teamwork and working together on creating great results for a customer, a colleague or a project. He loves the agile nature of our day-to-day business and the freedom that is typical Solar. You get the chance to develop and work with your ideas – as long as they create value for the customers.
