Do you want to work in Sweden's best industry?
At OilQuick, we attach great importance to our employees’ health, wellbeing and job satisfaction because that is what helps to deliver results. We firmly believe that it also plays a key role in motivation and inspiration.
"Our employees are very dedicated, which fills us with pride. We have world-class products, but if we want to continue to hold a leading position on a global level in the future, I am convinced that people must be able to see our constant striving for improvement. It is very essential for me personally that our employees enjoy their work. This means listening to their needs, being supportive and inspiring confidence. We care – and if the employees are happy, it has a positive impact on performance, which ultimately benefits the company. A strong team spirit is vital, which is why we are very proud of the good working atmosphere and sense of community at OilQuick."
Henrik Sonerud, CEO, OilQuick AB
Our corporate culture is based on three key values:
At OilQuick security for both employees and customers is top priority.
Our employees should always be more than satisfied. Our staff should be engaged, go the extra mile, and drive the business forward. OilQuick should always have leaders who believe in the company's idea and are attentive to their staff.
High quality should be visible in everything we do and make, from packaging to product. All customers should be happy with their OQ products. We always keep our promises, whether internal or external.
A flexible workplace
Our belief is that a flexible work environment promotes both productivity and well-being. Employees who have the opportunity can choose to work from home during parts of the workweek. Remote work brings several advantages that facilitate the work-life balance, such as reduced commuting time.
It is also a positive contributing factor from an environmental perspective and has expanded our recruitment area. Despite these advantages, we still value the gathering of personnel from time to time. Social interactions are a central part of our corporate culture, and therefore, we have chosen to implement the flexible work approach that we offer today – a balance between remote work and working in the office.
Elevating Workplace Happiness
Job satisfaction is not just an extra bonus but an essential part of our collective recipe for success. We are convinced that activities fostering collaboration and creating joy in the workplace have a significant impact on cohesion. Everything from shared breakfasts and staff parties to celebrating achieved goals contributes to strengthening the unity within our team, 'Team OilQuick.'
OilQuick places a strong emphasis on showing appreciation to employees and invests heavily in benefits and shared activities. The purpose is to give back to the staff and create a sense of community, security, and joy, both in the workplace and beyond. We believe that fairness creates well-being, greater engagement, and fewer divides. With us, everyone is equally valuable and equally important to the organization, regardless of position.
Another significant aspect is to create opportunities for professional development and internal career advancement in the workplace.
Focus on health
Their physical wellbeing is also of concern to us. All employees can have a massage during working hours every month. The company assumes the costs of ophthalmological examinations and glasses, if required, up to a certain sum. It also provides annual allowances for health care and discounts at many local gyms. Private medical insurance for all our office staff guarantees prompt medical treatment and rehabilitation. In addition, we also ensure ergonomic design in the work place to prevent problems with back, joints and muscles.
Every year the company takes part in many sports activities aimed at promoting health, such as golf tournaments, the 30 km distance in the Vasa cross-country ski race, dragon boat races, various events in aid of charities and floorball competitions organised by OilQuick. All the activities are voluntary and suitable for all ages and abilities. Every day employees can look forward to a healthy breakfast buffet and can also help themselves to fresh organic fruit at any time.
Life in Hudiksvall
The central location of the travel terminal is particularly convenient for commuters. Situated on the Gulf of Bothnia, the town is surrounded by beautiful scenery and an archipelago. In the centre, there is the harbour with the beaches easily accessible from there on foot.
Wherever you are in Hudiksvall, the forest and the sea are never far away. In winter, people head for the nearby ski areas in Hudiksvall, Järvsö and Hassela. The winter sports resort of Vemdalen is three hours’ drive away. There are many trails in the vicinity for cross-country skiers, some floodlit. Ice fishing and skating are common leisure activities in the town itself.
Music is very popular in Hälsingland and many different concerts are staged, ranging from traditional Swedish folk music to performances featuring local talent. In summer, the parade with old US road cruisers and the town festival with well-known artists attract many spectators and visitors.
