Employer of choice

Sandvik aims to be the employer of choice within our industries and attract, retain and develop diverse talented individuals to drive our shift strategy.

We focus on having a diverse, strong and passionate corporate culture, where people feel included and experience no discrimination due to factors such as age, sex, gender expression, race, ethnicity, language, religion, disability or sexual orientation.

By listening and acting on insights shared by our employees we build a workplace that fosters personal growth and development, while promoting digitalization, accountability and business results. We empower and support everyone to reach, act and function at their best. In 2023 we implemented a revised Employee Value Proposition to support our new Employer Branding Strategy and our Employee Experience Journey.

We strive for an industry-leading engagement level among our employees and have set an engagement target of over 80 percent for 2025. In 2023, we reached 78 percent (78). During the year we deployed a new engagement insights platform to become even more employee-centric. The digital tool provides managers with live engagement to instantly act on the insights from our employees.

Sandvik has a decentralized way of working and encourages local business area initiatives for employee engagement and individual career development.

We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion start at the top. Our Executive Management includes people from various nationalities and backgrounds and 40 percent are women. We aim for 25 percent of our managers to be female by 2025 and in 2023 the share amounted to 20.5 percent (19.6).

Sandvik was once again part of the green list in the non-profit foundation Allbright’s assessment of gender distribution at the board and executive management team level in Swedish companies.
