Volvo Values

Our company culture is about how we interact with each other, our customers and society as a whole. It helps us achieve our business objectives. It is firmly rooted in our history and is critical to our company’s long-term success. It is the foundation on which everything is built.

The Volvo Group culture is defined by a set of five carefully chosen values, which include customer success, trust, passion, change, and performance. These values are a major force in guiding our day-to-day behavior and drive our decision-making at all levels of the organization. The Volvo values are easy to understand – and yet fundamentally important.?They express our shared beliefs across countries and entities to form the basis for a high-performing culture that can help maximize the full potential of the organization.

To work with us is to work with some of the world’s most iconic brands. It is also to be part of a reputation that has been earned over a century. It is our responsibility to honor that heritage and build an even stronger future for our company. Each of our individual actions collectively define who we are as a company and how the world sees us. Our company values help guide us on that journey.?
