Essity Among Leaders for Diversity in Europe

November 29, 2021

Essity has been named a 2022 Diversity Leader by the British business daily newspaper Financial Times.

Essity placed first in the Packaged Goods category and 25th overall in the publication’s annual index, which ranks the diversity initiatives of more than 15,000 companies across 15 European companies. Financial Times partnered with market research firm Statista to survey more than 100,000 employees on the extent to which they perceive that their employer promotes diversity.

“Diversity and inclusion are business critical since this provides a broader recruitment base, which leads to better decision-making in the business and thereby better results. Essity works purposefully with these issues. Therefore, it’s particularly gratifying to be recognized as one of the leading employers in Europe,” said Magnus Groth, Essity CEO.
