Handelsbanken as an employer


We believe that everyone is important.

Our different backgrounds and experiences mean that we all have something different to contribute to the business, from a range of perspectives.

Handelsbanken’s strength is derived from the combined expertise of our employees. Every employee should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential, and we believe in people’s desire to improve and develop. Our work, therefore, is based on a clear structure within which our employees and our business operations can grow. This way, we are continuously improving – together.


Sustainability is important to us from many different perspectives, and is an integral part of our business model. We are aware of the fact that we have an important role to play, and a significant ability to impact the environment, the financial markets, and society in general. We run our banking operations in a responsible, sustainable manner, and we truly care about our customers. This is why we have clear sustainability goals, and a distinct strategy for how to achieve them.
