Group employee representatives
The Group has established a Group employee representative scheme that is intended to safeguard the employees’ interests in relation to the Group management in cases dealt with at Group level that may be of importance to the Group’s employees as a whole. One Group employee representative has been elected from Norway and one has been elected from Sweden. Further information here.
The Group’s international editors’ forum is described in greater detail in the section on corporate social responsibility.
Schibsted’s Group Council
Schibsted’s Group Council was established in 2004 based on the rules stipulated concerning the Establishment of European Works Councils.
The Group Council’s objective is to promote development, motivation, co-responsibility and mutual trust between the management and the employees. The Group Council is intended to ensure active collaboration and to be a forum for information, discussion and dialogue in the Group. The Group Council cooperates closely with the two Group employee representatives. The Group Council is a supplement to the employees’ representation in their own companies.
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 and management team the second day.
The Schibsted European Work Council currently comprises 34 representatives from seven countries who are elected by and among the employees. The Council is headed by Marianne Falk, Group Employee Representative from Schibsted Sverige.
