"AF Gruppen began 2018 with solid growth in both Norway and Sweden. We need a continuous supply of new colleagues and are experiencing great interest in both AF Gruppen and our industry. Recently published surveys by Universum and Karrierebarometeret showed that Engineering students see AF as the most attractive employer among contractors in Norway.
It is part of the AF culture to be curious and look for new solutions. The possibilities for innovation and the use of digital tools in the construction process are almost limitless. Improving existing processes is a natural part of our project operations and the key to increased productivity and quality. Meanwhile, innovation and digitalisation make us more attractive as an employer for the smartest brains. To further enhance our competitiveness, AF has built an organisation dedicated to increasing innovation and digitalisation, as well as facilitating new business models. AF has also, in cooperation with OBOS, established a separate venture aimed at innovative start-ups in the construction industry. The ambition is to enable good technology solutions to be realised," says Morten Grongstad, CEO of AF Gruppen.
