In J. Lauritzen, we consider diversity as an important and natural prerequisite for innovation and development of the Group. We want to remain an attractive workplace which can attract, recruit and retain the best-qualified employees and continuously develop them in order to utilize their potential in an optimal way.
We aim to create a culture where all employees consistently experience diversity at all levels, including management. In J. Lauritzen, all employees have equal opportunities to make a career, be it as manager or specialist. A key focus is creating a framework which over time allows an approximately gender balance at all management levels to reflect the segregated composition of the group's workforce. Due to the group's relatively small land-based organization worldwide, even minor organizational changes impact significantly on the gender balance at senior management level.
Our recruitment policy focuses on competence and diversity, which long-term is expected to increase diversity in relation to gender and nationality. Our ambition is that the overall gender distribution of the employees will be matched at management level.
