Our differences make us better serve customers and communities
It's our genuine belief that we become stronger and better at serving our clients' needs and communities because of our unique qualities.
Our diverse backgrounds, experiences, characteristics and traits widen our perspectives. This variety enables us see things in different lights.
Just as important is the fact that diversity enriches our everyday lives. We are challenged, we learn new skills, we get new experiences.
It's a commitment
We want you to feel that you can bring your whole self to work and that you are appreciated, respected and valued for your unique qualities.
Equal opportunities are a commitment – and we are proud of our genuine and structured work for diversity and inclusion. Making our workplaces inclusive to everyone only happens if we do it together and at all levels.
You can engage
When joining us, you can engage in our employee-led groups that work together to make our workplace even more inclusive.
So far, there are groups across all countries focusing on ability variation, LGBT+ and allies, gender equality and cross-culture and international colleagues – and it’s growing! We truly value our peoples’ engagement and know that we can achieve a lot together.
LGBT+ initiatives to
be proud of
Our employee groups focusing on LGBT+ and allies collaborate across borders to promote an open and safe environment for all employees regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Our people participate in annual Pride celebrations and workshops to take a clear stand for human rights. This is also how we are living our values.
“I’m part of starting up an employee resource group in Nordea Poland, focusing on LGBT+ and allies. It’s great to see how we team up to encourage everyone to come as you are.”
Kaj, IT Specialist
We bring cross-cultural perspectives together
We have a wide variety of nationalities in Nordea. Together we speak about 50 languages.
Our different backgrounds contribute to our development, innovation and culture in many ways.
Gender equality is a
It’s our belief that gender balance on all levels in the organisation will make us stronger as a company. We want to lead the way for equality and ensure equal opportunities for all women (52%) and men (48%) working in Nordea. There’s still work to be done through strategic initiatives and by involving our people. We want to closely monitor and take action for gender balance. Today, 40% of all leaders in Nordea are women and 60% are men.
Ability variation gives us
We believe that ability variation and everyone’s unique skills help us become stronger. We are raising awareness on (dis)abilities through our employee groups and different focused initiatives.
