Diversity and equality

Employees and managers are recruited mainly from within the local communities. About 99 percent of the total workforce and 93 percent of managers are employed locally reflecting several nationalities and religions.

A diverse workforce is strong, competitive, innovative and resilient and the Group focuses on diversity from several perspectives. A particular effort has been made over the past few years to increase female representation in leadership roles. When recruiting, the Group aims to present both female and male candidates for positions.

As stated in the Code, the Husqvarna Group shall provide equal employment opportunities to all individuals without regard to gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, nationality, social or ethnic origin, citizenship, union affiliation, political opinions or any other characteristics protected by applicable law. Physical, psychological, sexual or verbal harassment against any colleague or business partner will never be tolerated.
