Transforming Society Together with Our Employees

 

People are our most valuable resource, and we attach great importance to being an attractive employer for both current and future talent and leaders. Sweco nourishes a culture of collaboration, personal development, equal opportunities, and we strive to offer constant learning where people are motivated by each other and the impact they have in society.

Shared values in a decentralised organisation

Our work creates an environment where our employees contribute to meaningful results. Offering an attractive and challenging workplace is essential for both attracting and retaining talents. By gathering experts with different experiences and knowledge, and by encouraging them to take responsibility and make their own decisions, we create results in our projects and a sense of pride and commitment among our employees.

We have five core behaviours that permeate our decentralised organisation:  Proactive, Working with people, Accessible and Collaborative, Attentive and Committed, Adapting and Responding to Change
