Young talent

Through our Global Graduate Program, we attract and train young professionals at various parts of the Sandvik organization. One of the main purposes with the program is to develop and prepare graduates for future key positions, and after the program they are deployed into different roles within our business.

Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are vital aspects of our people strategy and part of Sandvik’s 2030 goals (see Sustainability goals 2030).

The responsibility for implementation and communication of the 2030 goals lies within the business, including securing resource needs and taking appropriate measures to ensure goal achievement.
