Storytel introduces flexible public holidays for employees

As a step towards Storytel’s mission to attract exceptional people by nourishing a diverse workplace, Storytel is now introducing flexible public holidays.

Flexible public holidays means that employees can swap one public holiday for another to celebrate something that they find close to heart: Ramadan, a birthday, Pride, etc. 

“At Storytel, we value diversity and strive to be a place where people thrive and excel. To continue to attract and keep talent, we want our employees to be able to celebrate what they truly believe in and not only the public holidays listed in our calendars”, says Märta Langéen, HR Director at Storytel.

Storytel has welcomed more than 150 new employees worldwide in 2020. Globally, the company represents 43 nationalities in more than 20 countries and has a gender breakdown of 52% female employees and 48% male employees. 75 per cent of Storytel’s employees are under the age of 40.

“It is important to us that we are transparent about diversity in our sustainability report, but diversity will never be just a number for us. The true measurement is when everyone who works here feels safe to be themselves and learns from each other’s differences”, says Märta Langeen.

Flexible public holidays will be introduced in all Storytel markets where local laws comply, starting in January 2021.
