Meet Nina Åxman, Head of Global Operations

She is seen as a future leader, although already heading up a large global organization. Meet Nina Åxman, and listen to her views on leadership and on steering towards greater diversity in the engineering sector.

In this episode of the podcast Meet Sandvik you will get to know Nina Åxman, Head of Global Operations at Sandvik Rock Tools. In fierce competition with hundreds of other leadership talents in Sweden she was recently awarded the title “The Female Leader of the Future 2020” by the Swedish executive organization Ledarna.

“I take some extra pleasure from the fact that it shines a light on leadership in an engineering and technology driven industry like ours,” she says.

Visible role models, explaining how safe and nice industrial workplaces are today and showing the variety of roles and competencies needed – that´s just a few ways to better attract people from the whole talent pool, according to Nina Åxman.

“We must walk the talk every day, if we don´t get that right we will miss out on our employees engagement and innovation capabilities,” she adds.

In the podcast Nina also shares the story on how a former Sandvik CEO and a glass labyrinth got her interested in starting to work for Sandvik.
