Meet the people that create our culture
Are you curious to get to know us better? Then you have to meet the people in our teams from around the world! In the stories below, you will meet employees from different business areas and hear about how they create an impact every day with Danfoss. Discover why they joined the company, what they enjoy about their jobs, and how they take action for tomorrow, today.
We work towards a diverse representation in every team. That’s why one of Danfoss’ key priorities is to have more female leaders.
We take pride in our people
We want to provide a work environment where everyone feels safe and respected, no matter who they are. In 2019, we hoisted the rainbow-colored flag at the headquarters in Nordborg for the first time and started our journey of celebrating diversity even more. During the Danish Pride Week, we decorated the headquarters and our Copenhagen offices in bright colors. To us, the flag is a symbol of welcoming everyone, celebrating and committing to diversity.
Challenging journeys demand diverse teams. In Danfoss, we are on a digital journey that involves going from several ERP systems to one common IT platform across Danfoss. It is a major task that influences the entire business, and it requires a high-performing, diverse team with a broad variety of competencies from very different parts of the organization.
More than 200 experts with different experiences and skills have been brought together under one roof in Flensburg, Germany, to work on Danfoss' One ERP project. In addition to bringing a crucial package of competencies to the project, the participants also enjoy being part of a team, which consists of 25 different nationalities, representing a wide scale of ethnical, cultural, and educational backgrounds, as well as very different career paths.
Diversity of thought combined with an inclusive work culture enables us to unfold the potential in every team, making us more agile and innovative. However, we are not where we want to be: The representation of females in leadership roles does not reflect our organizational gender split, nor the amount of female talent in the world around us.
That’s why we have set ambitious targets to reach 25% female leaders by 2022 and 30% female leaders by 2025.
We want to break down barriers and assumptions about leadership roles and inspire everyone to achieve their potential. We want it because it is simply the right thing for us to do.
Celebrating International Women’s Day
In Danfoss, we want to raise awareness against bias and take action for equality: An equal world is an enabled world.
The International Women’s Day is yet another opportunity to celebrate our 7.733 female employees in Danfoss across the world by highlighting female role models and focus on gender equality.
