Sustainable corporate culture

Through our employees, we make a difference. Employees with high job satisfaction, who display commitment and all work towards the same goals and vision, are crucial for our success.

Conditions for commitment and development

Our culture is based on our core values: Care, Deliver & Inspire. This entails, for example, that we respect and trust each other, and that we strive to make sustainable choices in all that we do. We want to promote a culture of trust and openness, and one in which we are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them. Being accountable and keeping our promises - to customers, partners and each other - is pivotal to our success. 

Digital transition with high level of commitment

2020 was a challenging year due to the global coronavirus pandemic, during which our employees and leaders demonstrated extensive commitment and willingness to learn through their ability to adjust. Due to a rapid launch of Microsoft Teams and a Group-wide training package for employees and managers in effective virtual work and management, our employees were able to continue to be productive and engaged, and share in skills development initiatives. 

Safe and secure work environment

Employee safety is our top priority, and Nobia has a vision of zero accidents in the workplace and no work-related injuries. Preventive measures are taken to minimise the risk of accidents, injuries and sickness absence. All production units have local management systems that encompass all of the employees with more detailed health and safety procedures. The management systems are based on OHSAS 18001 or ISO 45000, of which five out of 14 production facilities are third-party certified and two others are pending updated certification. In 2020, Nobia region UK received the prestigious Sword of Honour award. The award demonstrates excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work, from the shop-floor to the boardroom. 

Commitment and development

Leadership is an important cornerstone in our business strategy; its purpose is to lead our operations and to motivate and involve all employees to work towards shared visions and goals that are set high. In many cases, employee commitment is a reflection of involved and competent managers, and we see a clear link between them in our employee survey. To provide all the managers in our organisation the opportunity to develop and strengthen their leadership, we conduct the Excellent Leadership programme in which managers are given the methods and tools to use in their daily management work.

Code of conduct

The employees are expected to maintain a high ethical standard and to follow the principles laid down in the company's Code of Conduct in their work. Nobia values a healthy balance between work and leisure and encourages its employees to achieve such a balance. Nobia respects the individual, strives for diversity and equal treatment, and aims to increase the proportion of women in executive positions.
