Our Guiding Principles

Our Guiding Principles represents what is important to Arjo and are vital in building the desired culture, attitudes and behaviors. The objective is to incorporate our Guiding Principles in such a manner that they are embedded in the organization and contribute to building a sustainable and winning culture. Together we will build our Arjo Culture based on our Guiding Principles.


Growing business and people together

In Arjo, we actively develop our people in several ways. Our Talent Programs allow employees to share knowledge and work together on strategic business projects, under the guidance of the Arjo Management Team. Through our Mentorship Program, we prepare our employees for career advancement within the organisation, while enhancing skills in key areas. With our assessment tools we support high performing teams and help employees stay in tune with what motivates them. Our global Academy offers specialized product, clinical and customer related training. We measure the success of these ongoing initiatives using our People Survey.

Engagement is everyone´s business

Tracking our engagement is as important as tracking our business performance. Year on year, loyalty, satisfaction and belief in what we do is reflected in our high engagement scores – where we stand out compared to industry benchmarks. Our People Survey tool provides our employees an opportunity to feedback on their employee experience and helps us follow up and make continuous improvements.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We actively promote and work to embed a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment for people of all backgrounds. This is integral to our business performance in terms of creativity and leadership, and reflected in our commitments in the Sustainability Framework, our Guiding Principles and Leadership Behaviours.

Occupational Health and Safety

We aim to maintain our high level of health and safety at the workplace. We have a clearly defined framework and behaviours for managing physical and psychological safety in the work environment, as well as for employees’ wellbeing, with a Zero Accident Vision. Our responsibility is to enable our people in performing and delivering according to their best abilities, and we recognize workplace flexibility as one way to enable this. Workplaces have changed and will continue to evolve with digitalization enabling new ways of working. With our Guiding Principles and Leadership Behaviours as a solid foundation, we have concluded that a hybrid approach to remote working will benefit our people as well as our organization.


Our societal engagement

Arjo’s societal engagement is far-reaching and we support a number of organizations in the areas in which we work. We also encourages our employees to participate actively in social projects that improve the local community.
