The Volvo Way
The Volvo Way shows what we stand for and aspire to be in the future.
It expresses the culture, behaviors and values shared across the Volvo Group.
The Volvo Way culture is what defines the Volvo Group companies and makes working here special. You can use The Volvo Way as a guide for your behavior as individual, team member and leader.
Read this new edition and reflect on what The Volvo Way means in your daily work. Keep track of how you and your team follow the principles and discuss this. We all share a responsibility for living our culture and moving from words to action.
In a letter to all managers, Volvo Group’s CEO Leif Johansson explained why Volvo Group Executive Committee had decided to update The Volvo Way. This is a key part of what he wrote:
“Now is the time to lay the foundation for building our future. Managing the downturn we have learned some important lessons – about ourselves, how we work together and with our customers, and what we need to improve. We need to be lean. We need empowered employees. We need to be accountable, aligned, agile and able to execute decisions. We need to turn outward, add customer value and drive change.”
