Hero’s business areas are naturally characterized by unpredictability and constant changes. This requires a high level of adaptability and innovation. As an illustration of the dynamics of our professional fields, Hero’s logo is constantly changing. It reflects the refugee situation in several European countries from month to month and some of our integration work.

Working with refugees and immigrants is about making a new future possible. It applies both to the refugees and for the society they settle down in. The welfare system in Scandinavian countries presupposes a high participation rate. This means that it is essential that we facilitate and work towards making immigrants and refugees understood by others, as well as helping them use their resources and become contributors as quickly as possible. This way, we make a new future possible.

Since the development in arrivals of asylum seekers to European countries is a very current topic, the logo reflects the arrival situation in eight European countries. Keep an eye out for changes in the regularly updated logo.
