New HR manager joins NCG

Our new HR manager does not play in the 2nd division

It may well be that 45-year-old Mads Bundesen lives in Næsby, which has a football team in the 2nd division. And although Mads is a passionate footballer and has been a referee in quite a lot of Serie 1 matches, it is Premiere League he is aiming for at NCG when he January 2. joins NCG as new HR Manager.

Mads Bundesen will play a key role in the process of change that the NCG Group has gradually addressed. A change in which the future is drawn by a data-driven business strategy and where synergy is always sought between the companies under the NCG group.

A challenging and exciting process that will require a great deal from all employees - not least the leaders who are at the forefront of change. We met Mads at home outside Odense in Denmark to share his visions for HR.

“I work from the basic premise that HR must be business driven. That HR must always be integrated into the business and that HR activities must do something for the business strategy. That we must provide group functions based on the various businesses. We do not set tasks that are intended to please HR. Ownership must lie with individual managers, and our job is to support it,”says Mads Bundesen.

He joins NCG from a position as Chief of Staff at Odense Municipality, where for almost four years he was responsible for 85 employees in the HR department. Before that, Mads was employed for a number of years in 3C Retail, which is probably best known for their companies as L'easy and DER.

It is his public/private experience sectors that he puts into play when he sits in the chair on Sjællandsvej.

“I'm looking forward to coming back to the private ector. I have missed the dynamic that is the essence of a commercially run business. But that being said, I've learned a lot from working in a big public company that a municipalty essentialy is. About collaborating - being able to motivate and create the framework conditions for, for example, the success of managers, ”says Mads Bundesen.

But now he is focused on NCG, and as Mads sees it, there are two major tasks.

“First and foremost, we need to build a corporate structure where we have our identity and our functions. And in that context, HR is also essential when it comes to recruiting the right people. It requires that we listen to what is needed - whether at Hyundai in Sweden, BCI in Norway or a third place. At 3C retail, we also had offices in both Sweden and Norway, and I was there every month - and it will be the same at NCG. HR must be close to employees wherever they physically reside,”says Mads Bundesen, who looks forward to greeting all of his new colleagues on the other side of the New Year.
