Storvik is a global and forward-looking company, with quality as its hallmark. Storvik has a strategic commitment to a sustainable future and the UN’s sustainability goal number 5 is about achieving equality and strengthening the position of girls and women.
This involves 9 sub-goals and 14 indicators that measure how many women participate in politics, in working life, in unpaid work and in leadership positions. At Storvik, we have drawn up a sustainability pledge which states that we shall include young people in the labour market and facilitate more women in all levels of the business.
In Norway, the gender distribution among managers is gradually equalised. In 2020, 37.1 per cent of all managers were women, in Møre og Romsdal this figure was 35.9 per cent.
At Storvik, only 10% of management were women in 2016. But with a proven commitment to a sustainable future, we have now increased the proportion of women in management to a whopping 50%. This is largely thanks to Managing Director of Storvik Gruppen Stein Kjartan Vik:
The most important thing for me is that we have the most competent management team for the Storvik group at all times. It is well documented that management groups with at least 1/3 women deliver better profitability than purely male-dominated management groups. I am convinced that a management team performs better when it consists of people from different backgrounds and genders. It is therefore both logical and self-evident that we should have a high proportion of women in our management team. The fact that we currently have a management group with equal gender distribution is therefore the result of conscious choices, where we have also been lucky in recruiting the most competent managers regardless of gender.”says Vik.
