Electrolux Awards – Celebrating exceptional work and people

May 31, 2017

The Electrolux Awards took place in Stockholm last night, an annual event established to build the spirit and culture of Electrolux by recognizing and celebrating high-performing teams and individuals across the company.

Talent is vital to company growth and Electrolux is committed to recognizing the role people from across the company play in providing Electrolux consumers with best-in-class experiences that are core to company strategy.

The first global award at Electrolux was introduced in 1990 – the Product Award – to recognize and reward the role of engineers in the company. Through the years as the company has become more consumer and innovation-focused, and with sustainability a central part of the business strategy, new categories have been introduced to reflect the company’s change in direction. This year 11 awards were given out to celebrate exceptional work in areas including leadership, sustainability, design, quality, invention, and marketing excellence.

This year’s Sustainability Award was presented to the Food Waste Community Program from Major Appliances Asia Pacific. The program creates social investment initiatives that inspire and support local communities, focusing on health and nutrition, food waste and food insecurity.
