Having a responsible HR policy is part of our company culture. It conveys objectives and creates common values. It also includes providing options for further qualification and training for our employees, promoting diversity among the workforce or enhancing the compatibility of professional and private life (see also 405-1).
Our Integrated Management System is based on the provisions of the SA 8000 social accountability standard, which is binding throughout the company. This standard is based on the conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Humane working conditions, decent employment and due consideration for the social aspects of employment are the foundation for how we act at all sites.
