A diverse business is a more effective business

Bringing together a broad range of backgrounds and experiences and ensuring that different voices are heard makes us more dynamic and innovative, and more in tune with our diverse customers across the world.

Through our Better Balance strategy, we’re committed to fostering diverse teams, and we have a plan of action in place to combat harassment and discrimination in any form. We strive to be a fair employer that provides its employees with equal rights and opportunities. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination based on gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, trade union membership or political affiliation.

We’ve set a number of targets to increase diversity throughout our business around nationality, gender and age. For international diversity, our target is for the nationality of 30% of our employees to be different from the location of their daily place of work (up from 25% last year). We have achieved this target.

Our gender target is to achieve an even gender balance across our entire workforce. We have reached that goal with a split of 47% women and 53% men across all employees. The same target is set at senior management level, which we achieved on our Operations Leadership Team in Åhus, and we are continuing to reduce the difference across the senior management level.
