At Handelsbanken, trust, respect, empowerment and responsibility underpin our commitment to a diverse and inclusive culture. To us, diversity and inclusion means that everyone must have the same rights, opportunities, and conditions to develop and contribute to the Bank and their own career.
A foundation of our success
Bringing together and valuing different perspectives is an important part of our success, and therefore closely linked to our profitability goals. We believe that having customers from a diverse range of backgrounds and expectations goes hand in hand with greater competitiveness. It drives innovation and strengthens our business. As an organisation that believes in having purpose that goes beyond profitability, we also simply feel it is the right thing to do.
We aim to recruit, develop and retain employees with diverse backgrounds and perspectives while also reflecting the diversity of the communities we operate in, enhancing our ability to even better understand the market and adapt to a constantly changing society. We take pride in nurturing long-term relationships with our customers, employees, suppliers and local communities.
