“This ranking is recognition and encouragement for the work we have been doing systematically in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI),” says Katariina Kravi, Head of People and Culture at Stora Enso. “Promoting DEI is a long-term commitment and requires a persistence that we will continue in the future. This benefits employees and safety, as well as brings greater business success for our company.”
Katariina continues: “Diversity workshops and follow-ups at the local team level have been one part of our work as well as continuous communications of the importance of diversity. Perceptions of diversity are also a key indicator in employee engagement surveys. Diversity is not profiled as an issue for human resources only — it is a management topic and is naturally part of the management agenda.”
