LeoVegas seeks to broaden tech talent pool launching Regulus Programme

Stockholm-listed LeoVegas AB has launched its new corporate initiative ‘LeoRegulus Programme’ seeking to widen its talent development resources whilst further expanding its access to tech talent.

The LeoRegulus initiative was disclosed to Swedish business news source Dagens Media last week by Chief Executive Gustaf Hagman alongside Group HR Officer Caroline Palm.

Seeking to widen its tech talent pool, LeoVegas governance launches a 12-month paid training programme open to engineering graduates who will work and develop new skills within the Stockholm enterprise’s technology unit.

Furthermore, LeoVegas will support its corporate initiative by launching a SEK 100,000 (€10,000) ‘LeoRegulus – Tech Prize’ to aid social programmes that develop female talent for tech-led industries.

Presenting ‘LeoRegulus’, both Hagman and Palm outlined concerns related to the lack of female representation within the Swedish tech scene, despite the country being home to leading enterprises such as Ericsson, Spotify and King.com.

The LeoVegas executives detailed that more work was needed to promote technology as a relevant career path for women, as current Swedish employment figures point to an overall shortfall in skilled IT labour by 2020.
