Sofia has previously worked as a business consultant for H&M, Scania and Ericsson, among others. Sofia has been called everything from one of Sweden’s most rowdy women to One of the Iconic Innovative Trailblazers of the Decade.
Sofia will play a key role in Whispr Group’s journey of change from a consulting organisation to a SaaS company. She personifies the modern HR department with a strong focus on organisational and employee development from a clear business perspective. In addition, she has managed to show what many others are just talking about: that diversity and inclusive leadership is an untapped superpower for companies, says Anna Albinsson, CEO.
Sofia Falk has a background as an entrepreneur and advisor to over 100 global companies and organisations, including H&M, Volkswagen, Pernod Ricard and the OECD. She has also written the acclaimed book The Diversity Paradox – a handbook for inclusion, on how companies and organisations can use diversity and inclusion to optimize the potential of their employees, improve collaboration within the organisation and make better business decisions. She is educated at the interpreting school, worked as an intelligence officer and has a Master’s degree from Uppsala University.
It feels like a perfect match! With my background as an intelligence officer, crisis management consultant and not least as an advisor to countless management teams on issues related to inclusion and diversity, I see what capacity Whispr Group has to provide data-driven decision support to decision-makers through its platform. I am very excited to be able to put everything I have learned into my new role, says Sofia Falk, incoming Head of People & Culture.
