An attractive workplace

Gränges shall offer an attractive and safe working environment, where all employees regardless of gender, age, ethnicity and background have the opportunity to develop and receive competitive remuneration.

Competent, engaged and innovative employees with solid know-ledge provide the foundation to develop and manufacture high quality products.

A strong company culture

The company’s culture is very important for Gränges as a workplace where employees feel good, thrive, develop and perform, all of which results in reduced sick leave and accidents, improved effectiveness at work, better product quality and improved profitability.

To measure and follow-up measures taken and identify areas for improvement, Gränges every 18 months conducts employee surveys. Employees answer questions related to their workplace, such as leadership, remuneration, influence, working environment, career development, health and safety.

Equality and diversity

Gränges maintains high standards in terms of ensuring that the workplace is suitable for all individuals. A workplace that is diverse and equal, and where all types of skill sets are utilised, is of the utmost importance to ensure that Gränges maintains long-term competitiveness.

No individual shall be discriminated against due to their gender, lifestance, background, sexual orientation, ethnicity, physical ability, or in any other way. People of different ages, genders, eth-nicities, and backgrounds should be well represented at all management levels.

Gränges believes that a multi-faceted workplace contributes to more successful and profitable operations. Diversity in the workplace is also a reflection of the international markets in which Gränges is present. All employees should have equal opportunities to develop their careers.

Gränges’ long-term goal is that the proportion of female employees, including management positions, should reach 20 per cent. The ambition is that thirty per cent of all new recruitments shall be women on group level.
