Our people

Embracing diversity

Diversity is not only the right thing to do ethically. It leads to greater employee retention and improves productivity. Bringing together employees with different experiences, backgrounds and educations spurs creativity and can lead to new and innovative ideas.

We embrace diversity with respect to employee gender, age, ethnicity, physical abilities, personality, skills, experiences, and backgrounds.

Attracting more women

We also work systematically to attract more female workers to reduce the gender gap. For example, we have a fair and transparent recruitment process, and strive to have both female and male candidates in the final round of interviews. We also facilitate flexible working hours.

Grieg Seafood ranked 8th place on the SHE Index in 2020.

We also support initiatives like Women in the Scottish Aquaculture Industry (WiSA). WiSA promotes the diverse and rewarding careers that are available in aquaculture, to encourage more women to enter the sector. It also supports the progression, opportunities, and development of women who already work in aquaculture.
