“Our Guiding Principles create a robust framework for how we interact as colleagues, define the type of company we want to be and how we create value for our customers.”

Creating a sustainable future together
Arjo’s development is dependent on our employees, and together, we can create opportunities for sustainable development and gaining competitive advantage. Our corporate culture is built on equality, diversity and inclusion.
Arjos Guiding Principles
Arjo’s Guiding Principles promote a customer-oriented, winning and sustainable corporate culture in which we together create added value for healthcare. These principles were developed in 2019 through a close dialogue and feedback from the entire organization, and represent our core values.
Incremental changes in several areas
Arjo’s work to strengthen both individuals and local communities takes place globally and comprises strategies for the following areas:
- An international work environment
We create an attractive and inclusive workplace that attracts the right talents throughout the world.
- A cooperative culture
In a well-functioning corporate culture, all employees’ opinions are important for the business, as well as those of customers and other stakeholders.
- Leadership development
Arjo’s managers must, through accessibility and openness, allow employees to take their place, assume responsibility and have the opportunity to cooperate.
- Human rights
Arjo supports the UN Declaration on Human Rights and believes that all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
- Occupational health and safety
Employee health and safety is our foremost priority, and all employees should always have a safe and healthy work environment.
Taking social responsibility
UN SDG: 3. Good health and well-being
Our solutions contribute to better quality of life in more than 40 countries and in the markets in which Arjo is active. In India and South America, among other locations, Arjo participates in various donation programs for hospitals. This supports the development of modern and efficient healthcare that benefits the development of society at large, and creates conditions for people’s basic right to well-being.
UN SDG: 4. Quality education
Arjo supports education projects, both internally and together with partners in various parts of the world. We see that the development of sustainable care and a sustainable society goes hand-in-hand with the development of employee competence, but also with effective education opportunities in society in general. Through the commitment of Arjo and our employees to education, we work to ensure quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
