Embrace diversity

We use our full potential by embracing people from all walks of life, creating safe, inclusive environments for everyone to perform and be their best.

Our approach

We know that diverse and inclusive teams are a key driver for a successful business. We are committed to being an equal opportunity employer, attracting, recruiting and advancing diverse talent to enlarge our talent pool in a traditionally male-dominated industry. We do not tolerate discrimination, regardless of social background, ethnicity, disability, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation or any other protected characteristic. We strive for a workplace free from harassment and bullying.


According to our annual employee survey, the overall trend for inclusion is positive. In addition to tracking total result and development over time (trend) Skanska tracks gaps between different groups, as well as comparing the overall result with general industry norm (benchmark). ​

Other aspects of diversity, such as ethnicity, disability or age, are tracked by business units rather than at the Group level, as definitions, legal requirements and restrictions differ from country to country.
