Diversity and Inclusion
Our approach to diversity and inclusion is simple. It is about embracing everyone. Together we build an environment in which people feel welcome, valued, and respected. A company where our colleagues can bring their whole selves to work, where an inclusive customer experience is the status quo, and where we contribute to the well-being of our communities.
At NN, what do we stand for?
As human beings we are alike. But not the same. And that is our greatest strength. We believe our company is strongest when we embrace the full spectrum of humanity. Regardless of what we look like, where we come from, or who we love. That is why, at NN, we take a stand for diversity, inclusion and equal opportunities for all.
Diversity is about recognising the uniqueness of each person and appreciating the value we all bring. When we accept and celebrate the differences that make us unique, we are more empowered to succeed as individuals, as teams and as a company.
Inclusion means everyone all the time, not some people some of the time. So, everyone takes part – whatever our similarities and differences may be.

Why do we invest in Diversity and Inclusion?
We believe that creating an environment where everyone can do what they do best is simply the right thing to do. For our people, for society, and for our business.
We strive to create and nurture a culture where there is a deep sense of care, pride and belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language and country. This culture is based on our values and comes to life in our purpose: we help people care for what matters most to them.
