Diversity and inclusion at Sandvik

As a company with an open-minded culture, we have had a multi-cultural approach and have been recruiting people from diverse backgrounds for decades.

We have the intention of being a best-in-class company in our multi-cultural approach. From experience, we know that diverse teams are more effective. They are more likely to think and act outside the box and contribute to greater creativity and innovation.

Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of modern society and, for us, a strong competitive advantage. Having the right mix of people onboard, which reflects our markets, will strongly support our continuous development. It also supports our desire to identify and fulfill the needs of our global and local customers.
