Leadership the Getinge Way
As an organization, we strive to gain high performance from all of our employees.
We focus on their development and growth so that our employees can achieve the expectations of the company as well as their own personal aspirations. The Getinge Group has established a framework of four behavioral cornerstones that are linked to the success of the overall organization. Each cornerstone then has two associated competencies to serve as the fundamentals which define the performance assessment activities of our Talent Management processes. The competency framework is used to ensure that the most suitable candidates are recruited to executive positions, that the individuals’ potential is identified early on, that employees understand what is expected of them and that they advance by way of structured career planning.
