Focus - Forum for career development at SLU

Last changed: 19 July 2019

The FOCUS project aims to better make use of and develop the skills and resources that exist among SLU employees.

Through FOCUS, SLU employees have access to an individual sounding board, whether you want an inventory of your skills and your development needs more systematically or if you need help with individual issues or "dilemmas" related to well-being and development of your work.

FOCUS calls are suitable if you want to:

  • Get a clearer picture of your skills, personality and needs
  • Find a new approach to work
  • Prepare for future employment or professional exchange
  • Prepare for appraisal interviews
  • Change career direction 

FOCUS talks are individual, confidential, and focus on your work situation and your questions. Through the talks, you will get the opportunity for self-reflection, become aware of your own thoughts and attitudes, and as a result, you will be able to better support yourself and counteract your own limitations. You have the opportunity to participate in a total of six FOCUS talks.

FOCUS talks are booked with the occupational health service, contact information can be found on the page below (in Swedish):


The project is funded by central funds and has a steering committee composed of the chairs of SACO, SEKO and ST and the head of Human Resources at SLU.
