People are at the heart of our business. Offering a sustainable workplace for everyone working at, or indirectly
for Elekta through our suppliers, is key for long-term success.
Without our people, we could not innovate new, state-of-the-art cancer treatment solutions. Elekta is a global
employer with more than 4,000 employees, and our nearly 500 direct material suppliers together employ hundreds of
thousands of workers. We take our responsibility as an employer and purchaser seriously, ensuring we safeguard
labor rights at Elekta and throughout our supply chain.
Elekta offers a workplace with an opportunity to work for a higher purpose. Our employees collectively make a
difference in the lives of patients around the world. Attracting and retaining qualified employees is a
precondition for us to keep our successful position as innovator of cancer treatments. We offer a wide range of
opportunities for our employees, such as acquiring diverse skills, gaining international experience, and accessing
personal development and career advancement. Our aim is to create a culture and workplace where employees can grow
professionally as well as personally.
One of our long-term goal is to increase the underrepresented gender (today female) in senior leadership
positions to 30 percent by 2022/23. We aim to achieve this by evaluating candidates to new roles fairly,
identifying new hires with high potential for managerial roles, ensuring a balanced gender distribution in our
leadership programs, and developing processes for equal pay for equal work.
Our approach for this area is outlined in our People and Human
Rights Policy and progress is evaluated against clear targets and reported annually.
Every supplier Elekta engages with must have signed our Supplier Code of Conduct. To read more about how we engage with our suppliers, we refer you
to the Sustainable Sourcing Program, described in the Annual Sustainability Report and in the Modern Slavery Statement.
