Diversity and Inclusion are at the core of Sonepar’s Human Resources strategy, alongside two other key pillars, High Performing Teams and Capabilities.
An inclusive workplace is essential in engaging our current and future associates, and to allow Sonepar and its Commercial Brands to navigate their transformation and keep their market leader position.
During a recent internal interview on the subject, Elektroskandia Sverige Human Resources Director Åsa Pantzar spoke about how her team is working to make sure that every associate feels included in every aspect of their working life. She stated, “Having employees of different genders, ethnicities, ages, experiences, and backgrounds gives us knowledge and perspectives that will help us continue to grow and deliver. Our differences are our strength and what makes us drive the company forward.” She continued, “We are also working on our internal culture and how we should act. It is important for us that everyone thrives and feels good at Elektroskandia!”
On how this ethos will help Eletroskandia to grow, Åsa explained, “To continue to be at the forefront of the market, remain competitive and attract new talents, we must constantly learn and build upon our capabilities and behaviors. By doing this, we will develop a smorgasbord of opportunities to encourage associates to take initiatives, learn and seize new opportunities. The goal with all of this is to ultimately deliver value, make our associates happy and to be our customers' first choice!”
