Strength through diversity

Strength through diversity

Ensuring that Scania’s workforce features a good balance of gender, ages, backgrounds and experience is crucial to the company’s on-going success.

To make full use of Scania’s competency pool, Scania is committed to diversity, and aims to have a diverse workforce in terms of gender, age, background and experience for example. We believe that a diverse company, with a broad enough range of people to choose from, can better ensure it has the best competencies and the best people for each individual position.

During 2015, Scania initiated Skill Capture, management seminars to ensure that we continue to be successful. The process starts with Skill Capture Initial Labs, which discuss how to establish ways of working that will allow all of our present and future employees to perform at their full potential in a diverse and inclusive corporate culture. This leads to concrete actions in management teams, to spread best practice and bring together the most-necessary improvement activities. Scania will be tracking how the corporate mindset changes throughout the process. Starting in 2016 the Initial Labs have been conducted with Scania’s top management teams, including the Executive Board itself. To measure the progress of employees’ perception on Scania as a diverse and inclusive company, questions on this matter were included in the 2016 Employee Satisfaction Barometer.
