Work environment

Bisnode is committed to being an equal, safe and stimulating workplace. The employees are the key to Bisnode's success. We consider people's differences an asset to our business. All employees at Bisnode shall be treated fairly and equally regardless of individual diversities such as ethnicity, skin color, religion, political views, gender, age, sexual orientation or marital status.

Working conditions

Working conditions

Working conditions for Bisnode employees are regulated through employment contracts and through collective agreements. Freedom of association applies throughout Bisnode.

Career development

During the first quarter of the year, every employee has a performance review with his or her immediate manager, followed by a follow-up discussion after six months. Bisnode People, a web-based tool, is used to prepare, conduct, document and follow up on the progress of defined skills and personal development plans.

Work environment

Bisnode's efforts with work environment aim to create a workplace that is stimulating and promotes personal and professional development for all employees. Work environment includes both the physical and the psychosocial work environment. Health and safety are integrated in everything we do and great emphasis is placed on preventive work environment and wellness initiatives. We also create opportunities for our employees to promote their own health by offering annual wellness allowances.

Every department at Bisnode defines targets for work environment improvements based on the focus of their operations. These targets are combined with Bisnode's general targets and work environment policies. Bisnode evaluates the company's working environment initiatives on an ongoing basis to enable continuous improvements in working conditions.

Anti-discrimination

Anti-discrimination

Bisnode actively works to prevent both direct and indirect discrimination and we do not tolerate any kind of victimization or harassment, regardless of the background. Bisnode applies equal pay and other terms for equal skills and work. All employees have equal rights to develop their own skills.

 

Unlike the sorts of common conflicts that occur at every workplace, victimization or harassment is recurring. To break this negative trend, some sort of active action is often required. Victimization is defined as recurring actions that are condescending or otherwise characterized by negative treatment toward a single coworker. For example, the term includes bullying and physical violence. Harassment is defined as a behavior that violates a person's dignity and that is connected to any discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual identity or expression, ethnicity, religion or other belief, functional disability, sexual orientation or age.

Ethnic diversity

Bisnode strives to encourage ethnic diversity. When recruiting, it shall be clearly stated that Bisnode welcomes applicants with foreign backgrounds and educations. Credentials and experiences should always be evaluated in a way that ensures applicants with foreign backgrounds are not disadvantaged. When work is planned and organized, considerations should be made to ensure that the work does not prevent anyone from practicing their religion, visiting their home country or celebrating national or religious holidays.

Equal opportunities

In line with our equality policy, we shall actively work toward gender-neutral recruitment and a more even gender balance in all parts of our organization. Bisnode's employees shall always have equal working conditions and the same development opportunities. There shall also be equal opportunities for women and men to combine their professional work with parenthood and we shall have a positive attitude toward parenthood and part-time work..
