People at the Centre
Investor's highly skilled employees are at the center of our business model. We strive to create a sustainable, inclusive and attractive workplace, where people feel they can have positive impact.
Our culture is our foundation
Investor is a purpose driven company with a strong sense of pride in our long history. Over time, we have built a culture which underlines the importance of being curious, open to new ideas and collaboration. Our core values that guide us in our daily work are; Care for People, Contribute with Heart and Mind, Challenge and Improve and Create Value.
A strong and sound corporate culture is a prerequisite to successfully achieve our vision and goals. We continuously develop our corporate culture based on our core values.
Growth and Development
We believe in supporting everyone to reach their full potential and make sure everybody has a sense of growth and direction.
We work with the framework Impact and Development (InD), a continuous approach for discussion on goals and priorities, values, development and feedback. Each individual has his or her own Personal Development Plan. It is discussed frequently and the development planning is employee-driven, which means that the employee owns the plan. Investor, on the other hand, provides structured support and guidance.
We offer different opportunities to continuously learn and develop, including internal and external trainings but also job rotations to portfolio companies. The primary focus for professional development and up-skilling is on-the-job training. We regularly organize activities to encourage a learning organization and promote collaboration and sharing of knowledge.
When reflecting over different ways to develop, most of our learning happens in structured on-the-job settings. We also use coaching, mentoring, networks and training programs as excellent additions.
Investor Explore is our umbrella for our own individual learning process where we want to support our curious mindsets, seek and share new knowledge, influences and perceptions. Within Investor Explore we frame different activities, all related to our strategic priorities to reach our purpose and targets as well as to further develop our strong culture and core values - Investor Explore is incorporated in for example our Friday breakfasts, our theme lunches and our internal conferences.
We use 360-degree feedback, a process through which feedback from colleagues, and managers, as well as a self-evaluation by the employee is gathered. Investor mostly uses this process for development purposes, providing it to employees to assist in developing work skills, knowledge-sharing and behaviors.
Within Investor you can broaden and deepen your skills, be promoted and even try our our Rotation Program. Most roles develop naturally with close dialog with your manager on how to expand your role, based on your ambition, your potential and your willingness to develop.
Within Listed Companies, Patricia Industries and Group Finance offer formal career paths.
One way to support our employees’ desire to learn and grow is through our Rotation Program, where employess join our companies' organizations, often during one year. This gives a better understanding of the different roles and the ‘big picture’, which can help understand how different organizations operate. The Rotation Program offers a change of scenery, challenges people and increases knowledge-sharing.
