Nord-Lock Group and Mitt Liv enter a long-term partnership for a diverse labor market
Nord-Lock Group, a global leader in secure bolting solutions, has started a collaboration with Mitt Liv in Malmö to contribute to a more inclusive labor market. The partnership is a strategic step for Nord-Lock Group to ensure that knowledge about gender equality, diversity and inclusion is anchored at all levels of the organization.
As part of the collaboration, all employees at Nord-Lock Group’s headquarters in Malmö are given the opportunity to participate as a mentor in the mentor program “Mitt Livs Chans”. Through the program they will support people with a foreign background and post-secondary education to enter the Swedish labor market and find a job within their field.
“We have many different cultures represented in the office in Malmö today and see great business value and competitive edge in it. To actively support foreign academics to enter the labor market even outside our office is a natural step in increasing our contribution while also networking in the field of social sustainability”, says Fredrik Meuller, CEO at Nord-Lock Group.
Nord-Lock Group is actively working to increase activities and engagement internally around sustainability in general. In addition to the mentorship program, the partnership with Mitt Liv includes several activities that will develop the organization in the long-term regarding social sustainability to increase the ability to act inclusively; such as strategic guidance, lectures, workshops and networking opportunities.
“We see that our activities within the partnership will increase awareness of prejudices and norms and increase knowledge about other cultures. This is the beginning of a journey where clear goals, continuous follow-up and a broad commitment from management and all employees are central”, says Fredrik Meuller.
“We are incredibly pleased to add Nord-Lock Group to our partner network in the Skåne region. It shows that they have a high ambition to take a social responsibility and see the business advantage in cooperating around diversity issues. We look forward to supporting Nord-Lock Group's sustainability work and are welcoming their employees in the mentor program this fall”, says Bo Nilsson, Operations Manager at Mitt Liv.
