Friendly and Supportive Culture that Embraces Diversity

Skn"The company's culture is not something I think about, maybe because I feel so much at home," Steen, Specialist

Becoming a diverse and inclusive workplace where everybody can thrive and flourish is our priority. Our philosophy is to treat our employees respectfully giving them the chance to combine work, leisure and family life in the most convenient way.

Our attitude towards employee’s wellbeing is attentive and we take our employee’s needs seriously. We care for our employees and react to any difficult life situations or personal crises they might encounter, allowing flexibility and accommodating a job on different terms if required.

We wish to ensure that our workforce reflects the society as a whole and we make an active effort to hire candidates from all groups of society.

Specifically, we have set goals for the number of people hired under extraordinary conditions such as reduced working hours, reduced workload, or subsidized employment to compensate for chronic illness.

Through our company policy, we established a set of activities to promote diversity overall:

  • Applying broader criteria when recruiting, focus on diverse profiles when filling positions
  • Be more visible among different talent groups through a variety of channels 
  • Engaging employees as ambassadors and key communicators of our diversity and inclusion efforts 
  • Maintain and encourage furthermore a welcoming culture
  • Include people, culture, and Terma as a place to work more in employer branding to appeal to a broader target audience.  

We have created a welcoming environment where everybody is treated well no matter your gender, age, race, religion, political views or sexual orientation and we strive to obtain a balanced gender distribution.

We utilize our differences as strengths and create an inclusive workplace where diversity of talents is highly valued.
