Our community engagement
Sport is extremely valuable for children and young people in Sweden. A huge amount of work is done in terms of offering them opportunities for physical activity and a sense of community. But Sweden’s sports clubs are also training talented young people to be the sports stars, leaders and citizens of tomorrow. Here at IXX we want to help give Sweden’s young people the opportunities they deserve. That’s why we have a strategic and broad-ranging community engagement programme that focuses on selected sports clubs and on a number of partnerships with secondary schools, universities and vocational training institutions.
Partnerships with education
IXX’s partnerships with schools give talented young people the opportunity to experience the world of business and to gain experience in the process. We offer internships on an ongoing basis and, over the years, a number of interns have taken up permanent employment with us. A major factor in this collaboration is the opportunity that it gives us to recruit leading talent that strengthens our customer offering, which is becoming increasingly important, as all the evidence indicates that Sweden will soon face a shortage of IT expertise.
Sports sponsorship and partnerships
As well as a broad-ranging involvement with smaller sports clubs in our region, IXX is a strategic partner and sponsor of ice hockey club Rögle BK in Ängelholm, football club Helsingborgs IF and leading international women’s football club FC Rosengård.
“IXX stood out from the crowd in that it was an IT partner that actually understood our business and devised a customised solution that fulfilled our requirements. They clearly take the time to get to know the customer’s business and the experience they have gained from helping many different sectors, including other sports organisations, is obvious”
– Klas Tjebbes, former Managing Director of FC Rosengård
”IXX really listened to what we wanted and came up with an innovative and flexible solution. The IT environment and the technology are changing all the time, but, thanks to our partnership with IXX, we are well prepared for the future”
– Joel Sandborg, former club manager, Helsingborgs IF
”The IT environment and the technology are constantly evolving, and our partnership with IXX ensures that we are prepared for the requirements of the future”
– Magnus Blomsterberg, former club manager, Rögle BK
