Gunvor’s decision-making processes are therefore broad-based. All employees should feel they belong and that their work matters, working daily where respect and honesty thrive among colleagues.
For those who join us, we look to hire people who excel in their respective fields and can bring new thinking to our team. Our goal is to expand and improve our existing businesses, as well as to create new opportunities in trading and investments.
At least twice annually, summer and winter, each Gunvor office gathers informally. These events provide an opportunity for employees who may not often spend time together to have a chance to meet and catch up. And every few years, we hold an all-company event, like our recent summit in Marrakesh in 2022.
Gunvor’s employees tend to enjoy being outdoors—running, cycling, football, skiing, even alpinism—athletic activity which we encourage. Gunvor sponsors events for employees, individually and as groups, to participate in.
Family is important to Gunvor’s culture, and we regularly hold events where employees can invite their partners or children to join. These include company picnics, holiday parties for our employees’ children, and sporting events, both to participate in and to spectate.
Gunvor’s offices are designed with an open plan, so desks overlap and common areas, such as kitchens and round table seating, make it easy to gather. This approach facilitates “unintentional collaboration”, whereby ideas are fluid and creativity has a chance to thrive.
