“My first impression is that Volvo Group is an open-minded company that embraces diversity. Open minded also for new influences and ideas, I feel a lot of trust from my colleagues. My closest manager’s first advice to me was “Don’t lose your freshness – dare to question us”. He encourages me to question, to contribute with new ideas, and the openness I feel makes is possible for me to do that.”
