Our people are fundamental to our success. We treat our people fairly and with respect and ensure they have the opportunity to develop their careers to match their potential.
We take pride in the fact that we consider our workforce to be the very best in the industry, and see continuous development and learning as vital to our business' success.
A culture of respect
We recognise and uphold the rights of our people to a safe workplace, freedom of association and collective representation, just compensation, job security and opportunities for development. We are committed to working honestly and openly with labour unions and treating our people with respect.
We do not condone any form of child, forced or bonded labour at any of our operations. We comply with local regulation with regard to age of employees we hire.
Our commitment to human rights and equality
We are committed to upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
We value diversity and treat employees and contractors fairly, providing equal opportunity at all levels of the organisation without regard to race, nationality, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, political or other opinion, or any other bias.
Our people are hired, promoted and offered development opportunities on the basis of their overall qualifications, performance and self-improvement within their specific jobs.
Remuneration and reward
Our remuneration structures are based on knowledge, experience and ability. We undertake regular reviews of remuneration and incentive practices that take performance and potential into account.
Whenever there are significant organisational changes, such as closures, acquisitions, mergers or divestitures, we deliver timely communications on significant organisational changes and offer appropriate support to employees affected. Minimum notice periods vary across the Group and respect national law and applicable collective agreements.
We follow due process for grievances to ensure that any serious complaints about conduct, performance or treatment are dealt with fairly.
