Nokia is committed to diversity and a set of core values that make our company tick. At Nokia, we have together defined four core values that guide us in our everyday work. These values are:

• Make it great for the customer

Everyone in Nokia has a role to play in making it great for our customers. This involves listening and understanding before making the decisions that will provide a great customer experience. It’s about taking accountability, and holding others accountable, for keeping commitments and getting things done on time.

• Challenge and innovate

Challenging the status quo is a prerequisite for change and innovation. Innovation is the lifeblood of our future success and the cornerstone of our product making. This is about not accepting “what is”, but being curious and striving for “what could be”.

• Achieve together

Results matter, and we achieve more when we work together. This is about everyone at Nokia taking responsibility for achieving and collaborating across organizational or geographic boundaries to win. It’s about having a diverse and inclusive environment that promotes individual expression.

• Act with empathy and integrity

Empathy and integrity are our guides for dealing with our customers and each other. It’s about us being honest, transparent and doing the right thing. We inspire trust by speaking frankly and having the courage to call things out on what matters.

In addition to living by these values, Nokia is also determined to integrate sustainability into everything we do.
