HUSQVARNA GROUP NAMED DIVERSITY LEADER
Financial Times ranking
Husqvarna Group has been named a Diversity Leader by the Financial Times. The group has been ranked 128 out of 15.000 European companies in the annual ranking of diversity work.
Leigh Dagberg, senior vice president people & organisation, said, "I am incredibly proud of the energy and commitment our teams have put in to accelerate Husqvarna Group’s journey to become a true leader in diversity, inclusion and belonging. We have ambitious plans to make this goal a reality and we’re off to a great start.
"At Husqvarna Group we released our strategy on Diversity & Inclusion in April 2021 and being recognised as a Diversity Leader shows that we have something great to build from going forward."
The survey, with more than 100,000 participants, focuses on employees perception of how inclusive companies are or their efforts to promote diversity. The result boiled down to a list of 850 companies that are recognised as business leaders on gender, ethnicity, disability, age and sexual orientation in the workforce.
“We want to be a company where all employees truly feel they 'belong' and bring their full selves forward uninhibited and with passion. I’m excited to continue our Diversity & Inclusion journey”, Leigh says.
