While the nature of our work changes frequently, our core values do not. Kinnevik’s team members share an entrepreneurial spirit, as well as a belief in building longterm sustainable businesses. Kinnevik offers its employees continuous opportunities for personal and professional growth in order to develop their skill set and to take increasing responsibility for value creation at Kinnevik and our investee companies. The small size of our organisation enables us to personalise career development and training opportunities for each employee.
Kinnevik regards diversity and inclusion as core levers for value creation, and we make full use of the opportunities that arise from employing a team with different backgrounds and perspectives.

A small and diverse team
Kinnevik’s organisation comprised 40 people on average during 2021, with 28 people based in the Stockholm office and 12 people in the London office. The investment team consisted of 12 professionals, whereof 8 based in London and 4 in Stockholm. The other 28 employees worked across Finance, Legal, Strategy, Sustainability, Corporate Communications, HR and Administration. All employees but one were on permanent contracts.
According to a voluntary and anonymous survey sent to the full Kinnevik team in November 2021, 13% of team members self-identified as of an ethnic minority background. The response rate of the survey was 86%. Further, together with an external consultant, Kinnevik performed a Gender Pay Gap analysis during 2021 to identify potential underlying biases in our compensation process. The analysis looked at both unjustified pay gaps for equal jobs and underlying structural obstacles for equal opportunity. No significant gaps were identified.
Employee well-being is our top priority
In order to assess how our employees feel about working for Kinnevik, we conduct an annual employee satisfaction and engagement surveys. The results of the survey in 2021 did not indicate any significant issues with regards to human rights, equal opportunities or work environment. Out of the 79% of employees that responded to Kinnevik’s 2021 employee surveys, Kinnevik received an 2021 average eNPS score of 48 (scale of -100 to +100, where a score above +30 is considered excellent) when asked if the employees would recommend Kinnevik as an employer to a friend.
