PRIME WEBER SHANDWICK, Stockholm / MCDONALD'S / 2017
During the current crisis, Sweden has welcomed more refugees per capita than any other European country. This has put a strain on society, dividing an already divided labour market and making integration the topic that worries Swedes the most. McDonald’s, with more than 40 years in Sweden, know how to work with recruitment, feedback and leadership in order to make integration and diversity work. In fact it’s a part of the success. McDonald’s is Sweden’s largest youth employer with more than 210 restaurants and 12 000 employees, including 100 nationalities and 60 languages.
Show how McDonald’s, Sweden’s largest youth employer, contribute to the Swedish society by providing jobs and on the job training. Reinforce the image of McDonald’s as a responsible employer +10% and brand preference +10%.
Increase brand preference and trust for McDonald’s as a responsible employer. Make more young people apply for jobs.
The campaign encompassed pr, public affairs, tv, digital, SoMe, print, outdoor, always on and influencer marketing. All parts led to gordonken.se.
