Our strong culture and competitive edge depends on us being able to identify, hire and retain the best people. We are committed to implementing fair employment practices and actively fighting all forms of illegal discrimination.
We actively promote workforce diversity
Everyone is entitled to enjoy a workplace that is free from harassment or discrimination
Treat all co-employees with respect, dignity and common courtesy
Workforce diversity describes an environment in which fair employment practices support a workforce that includes people from many different backgrounds.
Diversity initiatives aim to increase the value of workforce diversity. We design our management processes to develop and maintain a workplace in which all employees can contribute to their full potential.
We want to provide a good working environment with fair terms of employment for all employees. If we all commit to actively living our company values and behaviors, it will make a real positive difference.
We observe international human and labor rights standards, which means:
My manager speaks to us in a humiliating and intimidating manner. Occasionally he/she scolds us in meetings. What should I do?
You are entitled to work in an environment free from intimidating, hostile or offensive behavior that is subject to legal protection. Report the problem to your manager’s manager or HR – they will help you to resolve the situation.
My colleague made a comment that made me feel uncomfortable. Is that harassment?
Not every negative or critical comment is defined as intimidating, hostile or offensive. If you are uncomfortable, try speaking with your manager first. You can also contact Human Resources or the Speak-Up Line.
What do I do if I receive an email that includes offensive jokes or language?
Jokes that could be reasonably viewed as offensive have no place here and shouldn’t be sent through company email, regardless of the intended recipients. You may tell the sender that you found the email offensive. You can also notify your manager, Human Resources or the Ethics & Compliance Office.
