Engaging workplaces

The skills, experience and commitment of employees are key to our ability to achieve our mission. Together we are building a company that is characterised by high business ethics, diversity and inclusion.

Diversity is vital to success

We are convinced that employees of different sexes, ages, backgrounds and experiences bring new perspectives and innovative solutions. Diversity is business critical for us in the long term and a number of targeted initiatives are in focus to attain a better balance between the sexes as a first step. The aim is to increase the proportion of women in total and at managerial level. 


A sustainable leadership that drives change

Sustainable leadership capable of effectively leading, engaging, communicating and driving change is a key element in attaining our mission. With this in mind, Billerud has designed the Sustainable Leadership programme, which basically involves making the expectations and requirements we set for our leaders clear and formulating this as our leaders’ promise to employees.

We need the competences of the future

We work on skills supply in the short and the long term with the aim to ensure that our employees will have opportunities to develop together with us in order to meet our future challenges. We are also proud to say that we are a rated as an employer where you have the opportunity to develop and pursue a great career. In several surveys, it appears that Billerud positions itself as one of the best employers in Sweden.

Flexible benefits for employees in Sweden

Employees are offered the possibility of working remotely up to two days per week on average, as long as the position does not require presence at the office or mill. All Swedish production units have local agreements on flexible working hours. This normally applies to day-time work but for some local agreements also applies to shift workers.

For parents we offer:

  • Paid parental leave in accordance with collective agreement or parental salary during parental leave

  • option for part-time work for parents with children under the age of 8, in accordance with national legislation

  • possibility to accommodate breast-feeding at work if needed
