Based on EU guidelines, Schibsted's European Work Council was established in 2004. The Schibsted European Work Council is intended to serve as a forum for the exchange of information, dialogue and consultation between employees and group management. Importance is attached to continuous contact between employees across national boundaries. The Council convenes twice a year. The meetings last for three days and are attended by the CEO.
The Schibsted European Work Council currently comprises 34 representatives from eight countries who are elected by and among the employees. The Council is headed by Marianne Falk, Group Employee Representative from Schibsted Sverige.
