Gender balance and diversity

Promoting gender balance and diversity strenghtens ASSA ABLOY's competitiveness and performance.

Local market understanding is a key success factor for ASSA ABLOY, as the company is characterized by its geographical expansion and new market development. 

With its Code of Conduct and Gender Diversity Policy as a foundation, ASSA ABLOY systematically works with gender balance at all levels throughput the Group.

Today, ASSA ABLOY works on increasing diversity and gender balance by:

  • Making efforts to increase the percentage of women participating in ASSA ABLOY's leadership and development programs
  • Promoting a diverse workforce with a good understanding of local markets.
  • Focusing on the recruitment process – ASSA ABLOY gives priority to the underrepresented gender in connection with recruitment (provided the candidates' qualifications are equal)
  • Making efforts to have one candidate from the underrepresented gender on the shortlist in each recruitment situation.
