Diversity and Inclusion
We are convinced that people with different minds make all the difference.
Investor is a small organization where each individual has the opportunity to impact the overall development. We strongly believe that organizations that are characterized by diversity and inclusion, and thus people with different competences, perspectives and experiences, build stronger and more dynamic teams.
We want to make the best use of the total talent base available and recruit, promote and compensate on the basis of merit, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, age, nationality, sexual orientation, union membership or political opinion and we do not tolerate discrimination. We want to contribute to a business life that is based on meritocracy and free from unconscious bias.
Our organization is well diversified in terms of age, gender and expertise.
We regularly collect salary benchmark data to ensure that we offer competitive and equal compensation.
Investor has a zero tolerance policy against any kind of harassment or discrimination and we have an external whistleblowing channel.
We continue to measure perceived inclusion and how our employees feel about their individual ability to make an impact.
We want to offer fair and market-based compensation. When it comes to equal pay, we conduct an annual salary evaluation to ensure that we provide equal compensation between men and women.
We have a Diversity and Inclusion Plan which applies to Investor AB and its subsidiaries, however excluding its operating subsidiaries ("Investor"). This Plan is written by the Human Resources Function and approved by the management group.
Policy and internal rules
Our diversity and inclusion policy is part of our Sustainability Policy, approved by the Board of Directors. Our internal rules, the Diversity and Inclusion Plan, is approved by the Management Group. Those rules are aimed at providing guidance on how to embrace inclusion and diversity and execute on the policy.
A strategy and defined targets are in place to ensure that the work is focused on relevant areas. Investor’s targets are updated regularly in cooperation with a working group consisting of HR-representatives and employees. Among other things, the targets cover areas such as diversity in the recruitment process, training and competence development and work against discrimination and harassment. The targets are monitored and followed up by HR on a regular basis.
We strongly believe that diverse teams characterized by inclusion and different perspectives stimulate innovation and drive better decision-making.
