Creating good jobs
We want to create good jobs that attract and retain qualified employees. To achieve this, we invest in maintaining and developing our employees’ qualifications and work continuously to improve our training of store and office employees. During 2016, 72 store managers or trainee store managers attended our store manager school.
We have a strong health and safety organisation in our stores, warehouses and offices. We encourage employees to be prompt and proactive in reporting workplace hazards and accidents and raising concerns about the workplace that can impact physical or psychological safety.
We believe that our future competitiveness depends on our ability to attract and retain an engaged and competent workforce, recognising the benefits of diversity in respect of gender, culture and experience. Our aim is to continue progressing towards our long-term commitment of hiring and promoting women. Diversity is therefore a focus area in our recruitment to managerial positions. Part of the brief given to internal hiring managers and external recruitment agencies is that they should ensure a representative candidate list also in relation to gender, although qualifications remain the most important criteria for recruitment.
