Able and empowered
We foster a working climate in which everyone can speak their mind. Every employee has the ability and the authority to question and challenge anything that doesn’t seem right.
We recognize that “gray areas” exist, in which the solutions are not clear. To increase awareness and enable better decisions in these real-life situations, all employees regularly discuss scenarios that present dilemmas.
All those inside and outside Skanska are encouraged to speak with a Skanska manager if they believe there is an ethical issue. If they wish to remain anonymous, they can report concerns via our external hotline provider.
We investigate all ethics complaints and, where they are substantiated, ensure that appropriate consequences and follow up actions are implemented. Skanska Group Headquarters and our business units all operate ethics committees to ensure ethics reports are dealt with in accordance with our procedures. Our local ethics committees and Ethics and Compliance Officers also work actively to drive ethics in their respective business units.
We do not tolerate negative consequences to anyone reporting a concern in good faith. A no retaliation policy is embedded in our Code of Conduct.
