Striking the right balance between well-being and motivation
Volvo Group is made up of a palette of unique individuals, each with their own interests, motivations, and life stories. They are passionate about what they do, at work and outside work. Based on our value of trust and our belief that we are at our best when we can be our whole true self at work, we offer an environment where everyone can find a healthy work life balance that works for them.
That is why we believe that in addition to company programs, a good communication and a trusting relationship with one’s manager is the base to find the right work life balance that accommodates all the needs of each individual.
Creating a healthy work culture starts with the basics – respecting people’s free time. This translates into behavioral agreements that some teams decide together to suit their needs and preferences in a highly connected world – for instance not sending out emails over the weekend.
Our benefits programs are many and very diverse across our different entities and hundreds of sites. Depending on where they work, our employees may benefit from flexible working hours, parental, study or sabbatical leave, paid time off on specific occasions, special training or support needed to complete a job. Our company policies on matters such as home working align to the needs of our business operations, the location of our premises or even the country legislation and always strive to optimize our employees’ time and reduce our footprint from commuting.
Services available on our campuses are also specific to each location. They include health, sport coaching or organic food markets in one place, child care or concierge office in another. Our flexible work arrangement aim to make the day to day routine of our employees easier so they can get more out of life.
