Can you fly and hire a CSR manager?

Of Course You Can!

Just because my company group are hiring a CSR manager it doesn’t mean I’ll stop flying. I have a job that requires me to to travel, next week Löwengrip are launching in Australia (fantastically fun!) and then Shanghai for a sales meeting, visiting a factory and then travelling to Sam Francisco to buy a new seller for Sephora and then back to NYC. You don’t make those kind of multi million contracts over the phone. Of course I’ll be flying privately too. A getaway to the sun in February is my way to recharge so I can keep up my pace and I’m not stopping that. I spend 6 months of the year outside the Swedish boarders, mostly in work but also privately.

Does that mean there is a double standard in hiring a CSR manager? Not at all. I know we’ll continue to grow along with the need to travel I want someone working for us who keeps us thinking and acting sustainably. Our hair accessories are being made in Asia, shoes in Spain and beauty products in Sweden. Making sure thousands of beauty products are being transported in the best possible way, using a ship instead of flying when we can and making sure as much as possible is recyclable. A CSR manager can look at all 70 employees and make sure everyone is compensating. We can make sure all company cars are electric, only serving plant based food at our events and conferences. The CSR person is going to decide what charity projects we will support and create an Anders Wall trust to support entrepreneurs in Sweden. I’ve been looking forward to that one. Those will be my company’s contributions other than the money we contribute to society’s wellbeing and jobs we offer. Not just for our own employees but creating beauty in Sweden for 120 million kronor (2019) and not move production to another country. Six years ago there was none of our companies existed. It was basically just myself and my assistant. Then Pingis and I. Today we’re a large group which we’re proud over. It’s important for Sweden to have expanding companies who keep hiring employees.

CSR is so broad and in depth. The list of things for the person to do can be made really long. That’s why it’ll be fun and important to work with CSR on a management level. There’s 70 of us in the group and we’re growing. Having a CSR person is a huge asset for us because we want to be a young and modern company group with a sustainable way of thinking in everything.

  1. Of course you can stop flying! We live in an hightechnology world where you can Skype your meetings etc. And there is no need to ”keep up your pace”, except your greed for more and more money. This is all just excuses for you to keep your luxury standards while our world pays the price.

Mini vacation

Just popping in to say hi. My feet are in the sand and I’m enjoying the sunlight. I also treated myself to a massage and sleep. I can feel how tired I am. It’ll be good with a break this weekend. I need it.
