STEM degrees

find out more

In the future everyone will need a good understanding of technology and basic knowledge of what artificial intelligence and robotics can do. If you do not understand how technology can support you in your processes, you cannot use it correctly. So we need to help our employees learn this – and when we hire externally, we have to look for these specific skills. For instance, 36 percent of the graduates we hired this year have science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees.
