NORMA Group, a global provider of engineered joining technology, recently celebrated the NORMA Diversity Day with its 6,500 employees from 40 nations. “Tolerance, respect and equal opportunity at the workplace are core values,” said Werner Deggim, CEO of NORMA Group. “We practice this every day. Diversity Day is an opportunity to celebrate diversity within our company together and acknowledge it as a significant competitive advantage.”
This year, Diversity Day was dedicated to the 10th anniversary of NORMA Group. The company was created in 2006 by the merger of the German company Rasmussen GmbH and the Swedish ABA Group. Its business strategy has been characterized by diversification and international growth since then. “Geographical and sectoral expansion has been the key to our success in the last decade. The increasing diversity among our workforce has also contributed to this,” Deggim said.
NORMA Group signed the “Diversity Charter” in 2013 and developed a diversity strategy a year later. The company recognizes diversity not only with respect to gender, nationality and age, but also systematically promotes the exchange of views and ideas between all employees.
