Focusing on gender equality
Our co-workers are Ovako’s most important asset. For us, it is primarily about finding the right skills for the right role at the right time. The steel industry is traditionally male-dominated, and Ovako works continuously to increase the number of women among its employees. Today on the International Women’s Day, Ovako’s EVP Group HR, Communication & EHS Phetra Ericsson shares her thoughts on what the industry can do to attract more women.Read more
Moa works as Head of Safety in Boxholm and is also responsible for operational development. Her job is to manage future safety initiatives and to work with development projects. Moa joined Ovako in the summer of 2014 after rather randomly coming to Hällefors via Ovako’s Student Program, which involved her writing her thesis on Ovako. The Student Program was Moa’s way in and, since she has been so happy with the company and the company with her, her career path at Ovako has continued both onward and upward.Read more
Safety as the number one priority
Ovako has chosen to place a particular emphasis on safety to coincide with the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28. Ovako’s Safety week forms part of our systematic safety work, and this year it concludes on the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. The theme for the week is “Dare to Care – Dare to Act”, which is an important part of Ovako’s safety culture.
