People and leadership

Outstanding teams and leaders play a crucial role in Electrolux achieving the Group’s vision and targets. Employees from diverse backgrounds working toward a common goal allows Electrolux to succeed in developing consumer-relevant appliances across the globe.

Electrolux offers opportunities to pursue a career in a global company with a strong focus on quality, innovation, design and sustainability. The spirit of innovation that began with Electrolux founder Axel Wenner-Gren still characterizes the company today. Wenner-Gren’s success was built on proximity to consumers and the ability to identify new business opportunities. These factors, in combination with a strong culture, form the core of the Group’s operations and drive its employees.

Measurable success

Being recognized as the best appliance company by Electrolux employees can be measured in part by the Electrolux Employee Engagement Survey (EES). The survey assesses various aspects, such as leadership, teamwork and employee commitment, and allows for external comparison with other high-performing organizations. The results of the survey are used to improve business operations primarily through action plans that Electrolux leaders create in cooperation with their teams.

Leaders people trust

Strong, trusted managers that focus on people and business results play a decisive role in the successful execution of the strategy. The EES 2015 Leadership Index score showed that employees have higher confidence in top management than last year, with the index rising to 78% from 75%. To help managers gain even more trust and management skill, a global training program named Connecting for Performance is being implemented across the Group. The training supports managers in translating the overall Group strategy to team strategic priorities while engaging their teams in execution.

The power of one team

Teamship is the Electrolux way of working that produces high-performing teams that continuously learn and improve. The four key drivers for Teamship are goal clarity, transparency, collaboration and engagement.
