7. Caring for people    

Our people are central to our global mission of ‘Feeding the Future’. To fulfil this promise, we need a driven and passionate community of people: people who work together across borders; people who know that “we” is more powerful than “I”; and people that understand that the best solutions are found when they openly collaborate. These people will drive our innovation agenda and also help us act as a responsible and creative business leader.

As Skretting continues to evolve – looking beyond feed for new business opportunities, we will increasingly also put together more creative, cross-functional teams, and introducing new skill sets and ways of thinking in order to be competitive in the market place.

To ensure that we continue to be in the best position to attract top talent and to help those individuals and our operations to reach their full potential, we are committed to providing an environment that is rich in diversity and fully inclusive.

In recent years, some important initiatives have been implemented that are enhancing our diversity and inclusion (D&I), including a Taking the Stage programme that empowers female colleagues in the workplace.

 

While these continue to bear significant fruit, we also recently embarked on a new initiative to map the status of relevant D&I parameters and identify possible shortfalls across our business, on a region-by-region basis.

Initially, the focus will be on ascertaining how we are performing with regards to gender. Subsequent investigations will also look at nationality and thinking styles.  

Findings will feed into and shape new action plans that will be tailored to meet each region’s local needs and regulations in order that each of our OpCos can take full ownership of their programme and generate awareness about it.

In the meantime, some KPI decisions have already been taken with regards to the minimum level that women should be recruited as new hires and in senior executive openings, and a suite of new tools will be provided to facilitate these appointment strategies and for the other reasonable but ambitious D&I goals.

“The way that Skretting is expanding globally gives us a fantastic opportunity to bring new talent into the company and to establish a very positive gender balance. As we continue to progress, we will need greater diversity in our ranks. This will include more people joining us from fields outside of aquaculture, who will further enrich our culture and business through their different backgrounds, experiences, thinking styles and ideas,” says Solveig Holter, HR Director at Skretting.
