Our vision is a Networked Society, where every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential.
We believe a better, more sustainable world will take shape when all people are connected. Ericsson has long envisioned the arrival of a Networked Society: one in which connectivity brings people closer together than ever before, where collaboration is part of everyday life, and where every person and every industry is empowered to reach their full potential. Mobility is fueling this change, and with more than 40 percent of the world’s data flowing through networks that we manage, we have a unique opportunity to lead this transformation.
We lead transformation through mobility. The potential of the Networked Society lies in transformation through mobility. Transformation in the way people organize their individual lives and carry out vital tasks. Transformation in the way we work, the way we share information, and the way we do business. Transformation in the way we consume and the way we create.
Respect. Professionalism. Perseverance. These are the core values that define Ericsson culture and guide us in our daily work and in the way we do business. They guide us in our commitment to our customers – a commitment that is bound by trust, innovation and performance.
