– Major recognition
850 companies have been ranked in the survey. AF Gruppen took 6th place in the “Construction” industry and finished 94th overall.
“This is a great recognition of AF. It is especially rewarding that it is the employees themselves who have graded the employer and that it is not a jury or expert panel that has composed the list. It tells us that the effort we put in to make AF an even more inclusive workplace is yielding results,” says CEO Amund Tøftum.
850 companies are ranked
The Diversity survey was conducted by the company Statista on behalf of the Financial Times. 100,000 employees have assessed the diversity work at their workplace. The employees represent 15,000 companies in 24 industries in 16 European countries. The data has resulted in a ranking of the 850 best companies in Europe in terms of diversity work.
AF Gruppen has worked purposefully for a long time to increase the share of women and combat unconscious discrimination. The Best People project and participation in the Diversitas diversity network are two key components in this work.
“In AF, our ambition is to be the industry's most attractive employer, and we work with long-term measures that will increase the proportion of women and diversity in the Group, as well as ensure equal career opportunities and well-being for all,” says CEO Amund Tøftum.
