Billerud Sustainable Leadership
A vital part of Billerud´s strategy is our employees. It is through our employees that we will reach our goals and achieve our vision. Having dedicated employees who wants to be a part of our journey is necessary, and we know that commitment is largely built by our leaders. Employees who create sustainable products also need sustainable leaders.
Our top 150 leaders globally have together developed the concept, Sustainable Leadership, which consists of clear expectations of our leaders. We have then built tools and trainings to support the leaders to develop and deliver on these expectations. The core of the program is the leader, and that the focus should not only be to be able to run 60 meters, but that you have to be sustainable for a whole marathon.
The framework for Sustainable Leadership consists of five different areas that are essential for Billerud going forward, and each area is built as the leader’s promise to the employees. The core of the framework is the leader, which means a great focus on self-leadership and how you as a leader can develop, your well-being and how you last in the long run.
The framework is then broken down into specific behaviors and actions for each promise, and the skills that are required to deliver on these promises. Billerud has also built a brand new academy with leadership trainings for both new and experienced leaders, which builds these specific skills so that our leaders can deliver on the promises and develop as sustainable leaders.
