Our human resources policies are fair and non-discriminatory.

One of our key sustainability priorities is being an employer that respects human rights and specifically employee rights. We define our human and employee rights policies according to the requirements of the international initiatives in which we take part. We ensure that our approaches and practices are reviewed by independent auditors. We report our performance transparently and in line with the requirements of these initiatives.

Each candidate with the requisite education, knowledge, skills, competencies and experience is given equal opportunities. We have a merit-based system for wages, benefits and promotion. We treat all our employees equally, and we do not discriminate based on ethnicity, race, language, faith, age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, disabilities or cultural differences. Based on this approach, the pillars of our human resources processes are right person for the right job, equal pay for equal work, merit by success, and equal opportunity for all.

Our corporate values, culture, notion of ethics, and philosophy of governance guide our employees in fulfilling their responsibilities. These serve as the foundation of the long-term relationships with our stakeholders and the principles to which we adhere.

We secure our employees' right of association in trade unions and entitlement to collective bargaining schemes according to local requirements in every territory where we do business, and we enforce the Principle Against Child, Forced or Indentured Labor in our company as well as in our suppliers.

As one of the first signatories of the Corporate Social Responsibility Code of Ethics created by the European Committee of Domestic Equipment Manufacturers (CECED), we are also a member of the Business Social Compliance Initiative.
