Human resources

Our staff

Making optimal use of our employees’ broad-ranging skills and different ways of thinking as well as their individual strengths and cultural diversity is a central factor in our corporate success. It is for this reason that the topics of leadership and diversity management were key areas of emphasis in our human resources activities in 2012. In the context of the review of our Management Principles, all managerial staff around the world worked together for the first time to arrive at a shared understanding of leadership. Appreciation of our employees as well as their diversity – in professional, personal and cultural terms – were highlighted as overriding values that will form the foundation of our Management Principles going forward. Our diversity management has been enhanced through the addition of a mentoring programme designed to promote the advancement of women within the organisation. As Chief Executive Officer Ulrich Wallin notes: “The advancement of women is crucial to securing our future. As a company pursuing ambitious objectives, it is absolutely essential for us to recognise, foster and maximise in the company’s interest the potential inherent in every member of staff”.
