But yet you found your way here. We’ve been working hard since the very beginning to change an industry that is hard to love – to something at least likeable. At Hedvig we believe the only way to do so is to work with loveable people.
At Hedvig we’re constantly striving to do what the competitors can’t do. In order to accomplish that, we’re always on the look out for people willing to challenge the status quo.
Working here, we believe that you are passionate about being pro-active and taking ownership to reach our common goals. Of course while being backed by all the competence that is the rest of us.
To us – culture is not a few empty words on a piece of paper. Rather, it’s incorporated in everything we do. But we do have some key things to hold on to when the weather is stormy. This is what we expect from you – but even more importantly – what you always can expect from Hedvig →
Empathy and trust We assume good intentions and put ourselves in others’ shoes. We work openly and honestly, talking to each other – not about each other.
Collective thinking We encourage productive conflict, look actively for other perspectives and don’t let our ego get in the way for the best way forward.
Ownership We are pro-active and responsible grown-ups. As owners of Hedvig, we see what needs to be done and do it, regardless of role or title.
Remarkableness We cannot change an entire industry by being ordinary. What we do will never be mediocre. It might be bold, impossible, crazy. But it will always leave a mark.
To get to work with the extremely talented creatives hired before me really was the selling point. And of course – the opportunity to shape what hopefully becomes a world wide phenomenon.– Sofia Gustafsson, Art Director

And that’s also why he have ten times happier customers than the industry average.

John, Lucas and Fredrik – also known as the founders of Hedvig.
The founder story The journey with Hedvig started in 2017 while our CEO, Lucas, was working as a management consultant at McKinsey. He was sent to do a cost efficiency program for a big insurance company; and even though he knew almost nothing about insurance, he could feel that something wasn’t right.
He saw ordinary people getting treated as potential criminals, enduring onerous information requests and getting inadequate support in some of life’s most challenging situations – even though they’d been loyal customers for years.
So together with Fredrik and John, he launched Hedvig, which gave ordinary people access to an unheard of level of service within insurance, to the price of standard coverage – if not less. Unlike other insurance companies, we’re showing that it’s possible to remove the checklists, skip the fights over rights and wrongs, and totally embrace what we believe over what we can prove.
People ask us all the time if we’re an insurance company, if we’re a tech company, if we’re a startup. The answer to all of that is yes. But above all, we’re a service company – online, offline, or wherever people need us.
