The Gold Club
After 25 years of employment, you qualify for membership in a very special club.
Atlas Copco's Gold Club was established in 1968 by the then President and CEO Kurt-Allan Belfrage with the aim of recognizing and honoring employees who have stayed with the company for a long time. Anyone who has worked for one of Atlas Copco's various companies for a total of 25 years becomes a member. Today, the Gold Club still unites people all around the world long after they have retired.
When the Gold Club celebrated 50 years in 2018, it had around 7,000 members, of which about a quarter were Swedish. The club is open to anyone who has worked for the Group for at least 25 years, regardless of whether they have been continuously employed or not. Employees who have been employed through an acquisition can after 5 years become a member, with basis in the years of employment within the acquired company.
I have run into many people who have spent years at Atlas Copco but left for various reasons. They all have one thing to say, and that is that they have never experienced quite the same kind of spirit in a company as they did at Atlas Copco.
