Enable our employees to realize their full potential, as part of one winning team

We offer career opportunities in a leading global hygiene and health company that is working to increase well-being in the world through leading hygiene and health solutions. Improved hygiene and health are basic conditions for a better life and play a vital role in well-being.

The health and safety of our employees is a top priority. We are striving to continuously improve the work environment to make it safe and healthy. Everyone should feel safe when they work for Essity. Managers, employees and partners receive training on a regular basis and all Essity plants have plans to improve safety at their facilities.

Essity’s success is dependent upon motivated, competent and performance-oriented employees. Our ambition is that all employees will reach their full potential, and assume responsibility for driving their own development. To achieve the objective, we work to continuously develop our corporate culture, our leadership and to provide a number of programs and initiatives to build capabilities.

Essity offers a strong corporate culture based on our “Beliefs & Behaviors”: we are committed, we care, we collaborate, and we have courage. These express, in different ways, what is required of all employees to successfully develop Essity. Our “Beliefs & Behaviors” are supplemented by Essity’s Code of Conduct, which was updated in 2018. The Code of Conduct instructs employees in how we conduct our business in a responsible manner to benefit our company, society and the environment. The Code helps employees to make correct decisions in daily work.

In 2018, Essity conducted a global employee survey. This was completely digital and the response rate was 80%. The survey shows strong employee engagement with particularly high scores in areas such as collaboration, results orientation, team spirit, health and safety.
