Diversity matters

To ensure we maintain and enhance the expertise we offer, we invest in developing the competence of our people.

Why it matters

Trust and expertise are at the core of our relationship with customers and stakeholders. Our employees interact with our customers every day, delivering the services they require and building trust-based relationships. Our strong company culture has ensured we continue to deliver for our customers through challenging market conditions and downsizing. To make sure we maintain and enhance the expertise we offer, we invest in developing the competence of our people.

We want to be a company that attracts, retains and develops engaged people who are committed to our purpose, vision and values. For employees, we want to be ‘the best place to develop your competence.’ A high-quality recruitment process, an attractive employee-value proposition and varied development and career opportunities are crucial to achieving this. We value diversity and want to employ the best people regardless of background. We believe a diverse workforce provides a better basis for delivering excellent services.

Case study

Training our leaders on digital transformation

Like many other companies, we are facing the combined opportunity and challenge of global digitalization and its influence on a rapidly changing business environment. We are responding through our digital transformation strategy and have developed a Leading Digital Transformation training programme to enhance our digital capability organization wide and to accelerate our transformation.
 
Completed in collaboration with INSEAD business school, the programme aims to establish a common understanding, language and competence among all employees, including:
 
  • The digital elements of DNV GL’s strategy
  • Relevant digital technologies and digital ways of working
  • The need for transformation and innovation, and the opportunities that come with it
  • Using digital technologies, work processes, skills, attitudes and behaviours with colleagues, teams and customers in everyday work.
 
A total of 633 senior managers from all business areas completed the on-line programme in 2018 over an eight-week period. The programme itself is an example of how digital ways of working can enable change and accelerate transformation processes. It is also designed to link with ongoing work for each participant.
 
The feedback on the course has been overwhelmingly positive and the success of the programme has resulted in lighter version programmes being developed. These will be available for 500+ further managers and all employees in 2019.
