Management development

At Orkla, leadership means creating value by working with and through others. Good leadership is grounded on our corporate values: Being brave, trustworthy and inspiring.

Being brave means being innovative and ambitious – we aim for world-class performance! We balance bravery with trustworthiness; we keep our promises and take responsibility. Inspiration gives energy, passion and the desire to succeed.

Our managers are key individuals and culture bearers in our organisation. Through coaching and engaging leadership, based on management-employee trust, we achieve success and sustainable growth.

We see management and leadership as a profession in its own right and as skills born of experience, knowledge and attitudes. Our leadership development strategy is the tool we employ for developing and enhancing leadership qualities and Orkla’s corporate culture. Whether you are a new manager or have worked for many years, we believe in the importance of continuous professional development throughout your career. Our development approach takes many different forms: we have leadership programmes, mentoring, scholarships, broadening assignments or specialisation of job skills and, an extremely important component – learning in a stimulating and exciting environment!
