Diversity and inclusion
Discrimination is against our Code of Conduct, which clearly states that no direct or indirect negative discrimination shall take place based on race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, language, religion, employee representation, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Human beings have the right to be treated with respect and dignity.
Telenor’s business practices are not sustainable unless we base relationships on basic human rights with and between employees and appreciate diversity, cultural and other differences.
We value flexibility
We believe flexible work is the way forward. Taking inspiration from the Finnish flexible work front-runners, our Finnish telco DNA, and incorporating learned experiences from the Covid-19 related lockdowns, we have adopted a flexible approach to work to facilitate the next-generation workday.
Recent events have also been hugely formative in our approach to leadership, especially in a flexible work environment. Today, we embrace the ‘tight-loose-tight’ leadership principle. This sees leaders and employees together find a balance where tight sets expectations and gives direction, loose provides the freedom to find the best way of approaching the task, and tight again ensures follow-up and holds people accountable.
