Business Iceland's HR policy motto:

With us, ideas are created and implemented.​​​​​​​

Nothing is impossible, and new ideas and new approaches are welcomed. 

Our workplace is a simmering melting pot of expertise and simultaneously enveloping, fun, challenging, international and creative.

Collaboration, diversity and equality

We celebrate diversity, support equality and our attitude is open. We push back against prejudices and stereotypes.

We treat each other with good attitude and positivity. We respect each other and take care in collaboration and communication.

We approach projects with an open mind, have frank useful exchanges and debates, listen to each other’s points of view and give each other feedback.

We work hard and do our best, but we are also allowed to make mistakes, discuss and learn. We ask for help and admit our inadequacies.

Work environment, health promotion, professional development

We have flexible working hours and attendance and emphasise a balance between work and private life. We are a family-friendly workplace. We are constantly developing the organisation of a hybrid workplace.

We have good working conditions and facilities in a diverse work space, to properly support our work. We keep our workspace tidy.

We have a high level of professionalism that we cultivate well and that is in demand.

We emphasise physical and mental health in our work.

Management, organisation

Our mission and goals are clear, and at the same time, we have freedom of action in a stimulating environment. We show initiative and take responsibility for our work.

We work together in teams across divisions and priorities and share project responsibilities – that’s how things get done. We all have a strong voice to contribute to the conversation in our teams.

We share information well between priorities and divisions, we purposefully use different forms of communication in providing information and we seek out information.

We constantly measure our performance, evaluate it, encourage, celebrate and set new goals based on Iceland’s export policy.

We use processes to make life easier, not to complicate it.

We are sustainable and practical

We work according to sustainable thinking and follow the “Green Steps”.

We define a shared vision for project work, what the final product should be, roles, timelines and follow-up.

We take good care of the resources we are entrusted with.

We work quickly and efficiently and have short meetings with a purposeful agenda.
