The ability to attract, develop and retain competent employees is of the utmost importance to Systemair’s commercial success. Against that background, we must offer an attractive workplace, in which we invest in competence development, maintain a good work environment and promote equal opportunity. Our global operations and entrepreneurial spirit offer excellent career prospects for employees wanting to gain international experience and quickly take on big responsibilities.
In the Systemair organisation, a good work environment is a priority area and strong commitment is focused on creating a workplace promoting the physical and mental well-being of our employees. We want our employees to have a stimulating and healthy work environment that prevents accidents and inspires efficient and working in a goal-focused way. Our organisation is characterised by openness, enabling all employees to influence their own working situation. Systemair employees decide themselves whether to join a labour union in accordance with the legislation in the country where they work. Violence or the threat of violence in the workplace, harassment, bullying or similar abuses of employees will not be tolerated.
Our view is that, by promoting diversity in which a premium is placed on differing perspectives, we increase our chances of creating a more successful company, with innovative products and smart ways of working. At Systemair, we want everyone to feel welcome, whatever their background. What is important to us is knowledge, experience and personal qualities and no discrimination on the basis of sexual disposition, gender, age, ethnicity, colour of skin or religion will be permitted. All employees will be treated with respect, and no-one will be subject to degrading or insulting treatment at the workplace.
Competence development is a constant theme throughout Systemair's operations, and it affects everyone in the organisation. All training courses place the focus on the Company’s values and corporate culture. Systemair’s competence development programme aims to obtain feedback on potential improvements and develop the competence that our personnel need for their meetings with customers – always with the objective of staying ahead of our competitors. Our principal training initiatives are:
- ”Selling the right way – Train the Trainer”: sales-related training targeting CEOs of the subsidiaries and their respective sales managers, who in turn train sales personnel at the local offices. The focus is on sales techniques, negotiation and presentation techniques.
- Systemair Academy: product-related training for engineers and sales personnel, administered at 15 academies. More than 300 employees took part at one or other of the academies over the past year. The courses focus on concept sales, that is, the salesperson places the products in a context, and on how Systemair can increase its sales by better integrating the Company’s values into the sales process.
- 3Cs – Corporate Culture Concept: training in Systemair’s corporate culture to all our employees. Training is given using the “train the trainer” concept and was implemented at the local companies over the past year. All CEOs at the subsidiaries and the majority of employees at the major companies have undergone this training.
In addition to these programmes, our Finance Controller Academy looks at financial accounting, follow-up and reporting and the M3 Academy reviews business-critical processes. Most courses extend over 2-3 days.
