Diversity & inclusion

We promote inclusion in day-to-day working life. Teamwork and collaboration are characterized by mutual respect, openness, honesty and integrity, and a common understanding of what trust-based cooperation means – all with the goal of achieving productivity, creativity and efficiency at the highest-possible levels.

The Diversity Council advises on the further development of diversity management in the Group’s divisions. We regularly review the effectiveness of our measures. External expertise is also provided by members of the Sustainability Advisory Council.

Raising diversity awareness

We offer employees and managers special training on the topic of diversity and inclusion. The aim is to sensitize managers to the fact that they play a key role in putting diversity management into practice. In 2017, we developed and introduced a tool that, among other things, enables self-assessment in relation to diversity issues at the team level.
We were also involved in the development of the UN Commission on Human Rights’ recommendations for globally operating enterprises on combatting discrimination against homosexual, bisexual and transgender people, and will help in raising international awareness of these recommendations through our internal communications channels.
