Ensuring decent working conditions

Crossing overhead

We uphold high standards of ethics and rights in our own internal activities, and aim to treat all our employees in a way that satisfies internationally recognized ethical and responsible business practices, customers, investors, partners, and the relevant legislation, global or local.

A comprehensive management framework for labor conditions

We understand it is our basic responsibility to provide decent working conditions and to be seen to be fair and just in how we treat our own people. Our Code of Conduct provides the basis for our labor conditions, and is underpinned by a comprehensive set of global human resources policies and procedures that enable fair employment. We adhere to the International Labor Organization (ILO) Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and wherever we operate we meet the requirements of labor laws and regulations, and oftentimes strive to exceed those laws and regulations.

We are aligned with the SA8000 Standard, and the common industry code of conduct. Our policies, Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), and Employment Guidelines are implemented to help achieve the high standards we have set ourselves. The policies cover:
• Child labor avoidance
• Forced labor avoidance
• Freedom of association & collective bargaining
• Non-discrimination
• Humane treatment
• Working time
• Disciplinary practices
• Compensation
• Occupational health and safety.

This approach is also applied to our suppliers and partners. You can read more on our supplier practices under Responsible sourcing
