Vision and values

Attendo is a large company with many employees active in different operations and countries. We want every individual who comes in contact with Attendo’s services to be treated equally based on their specific needs.

People who come to us, should be able to trust that we can provide the care they need in the way they want. Therefore, we have placed major emphasis on formulating a common vision and values that bond us together.

People come to Attendo because they need different kinds of help and support in their everyday lives. They are often in a vulnerable position, and not infrequently left to the care from those around them to understand and interpret their needs.

At Attendo, we believe that all individuals, regardless of their life situation, want to have control of their lives. That is why our vision and our values are all about working in a way that puts the individual’s needs and preferences first

Attendo’s vision

Our vision is our most all-encompassing purpose. We call it: Empowering the individual.

For us, Empowering the individual means that:

  • Every individual feels participatory and listened to.
  • Every individual feels they are met with respect and warmth.
  • Every individual feels supported in achieving independence.
  • Every individual feels safe and secure.
  • Every individual perceives that their quality of life is positively affected.

Attendo’s values

At Attendo we have three all-encompassing values - competence, commitment and care - that act as guidelines for everything we do, how we present ourselves to the users, their families and to each other as employees.

Altogether, our values help us to realise our vision.


  • We always try to understand each individual’s needs and preferences.
  • We are proud to be a quality leader and are willing to show our results openly.
  • We do the right things at the right time.
  • We are thorough and pay attention to details.
  • We contribute to development by seeking solutions where others see problems.


  • We are proud of what we do and of being a part of Attendo.
  • We are trustworthy and keep our promises.
  • We are ambitious and try to always exceed expectations.
  • We find satisfaction in a job well done.


  • We make people feel safe and secure.
  • We help people to help themselves.
  • We always treat each person with respect.
  • We listen to the individual and adapt our actions accordingly.
  • We work as a team and support each other within the company.

The Mountain - the symbol of our vision

At Attendo, we put the individual first. It is the individual’s needs and preferences that guide us - at each meeting and during each action. With our competence, commitment and care we will do whatever we can to empower the individual.

We do not focus on the problems that exist, but rather on the possibilities. We are fully aware that not everything is always possible. But we refuse to give up without a try.
We have chosen a mountain as the symbol for our vision: Empowering the individual.

The mountain is an age-old symbol for that which is difficult to surmount and challenging. That can not be accomplished without strong conviction, diligent work and excellent competence.

We believe we can move mountains. And if we cannot do that, then we shall do everything we can, anyway, to ensure that the individual’s wants are met.

That is our promise. The mountain only exists – to be moved.

Attendo values

Competence - for us, competence means for example that we take pride in being at the forefront of quality in our industry and that we are willing to share our results openly.

Commitment - for us, commitment means for example that we have a ”can do attitude” and always try to exceed expectations.

Care - for us, care means for example that we make people feel safe & secure.
