Diversity and inclusion yield efficient teams

NCC is convinced that companies and work groups comprising employees with different backgrounds, genders, skills and experiences have greater potential to achieve better results, increase their innovativeness and simultaneously deliver greater social value.

NCC Diversity policy includes the objective to attract, develop and retain a workforce that represents and reflects the society we operate in. We are committed to develop our business also by renewing our ways of viewing competence and by acknowledging a broader perspective on individual differences.

Therefore, we take actions to broaden our recruitment base to increase diversity, attract more candidates to the construction industry and create an inclusive culture that enables our employees to thrive and enjoy their work.

Examples:

Workshops on NCC’s values

NCC is a value-guided company. In 2019, nearly half of the employees in the business areas NCC Infrastructure in Sweden and NCC Building Sweden participated in workshops on NCC’s core values. These have been led by 100 internal moderators. Through this program, the employees have enhanced their knowledge of NCC’s values and gained new insights into diversity and inclusion. The initiative will continue in 2020.

Active efforts to recruit women to the industry and develop their skills

Stella has been running since 1998 and is NCC’s network for female engineers and academics. Its aim is to support women at NCC, enabling them to exchange experiences, evolve in their roles and be able to assume senior positions at NCC. There are still too few woman in production – which is why Stella, with its 500 active members, is needed.
