Diversity for successful business

Lisa Grunning, participant in Sandvik's Global Graduate Program, and Johan Kerstell, Head of Human Resources at Sandvik.

For Sandvik, diversity is an important tool in creating favorable business results. With global operations and customers in more than 150 countries, seizing all sorts of perspectives and experiences is a necessity for continued success.

Sandvik works on several levels to increase diversity in its operations and to create an inclusive culture. Sandvik offers knowledge and training in diversity and inclusion through a toolbox that includes e-learning, workshops and exercises. There is a program focusing on leading across boundaries and a global core leadership program providing an introduction on how to work with diversity and inclusion as a manager. In 2017, the share of women in managerial positions increased from 16.5% to 17.1%.
