Our most important resource is our employees. Therefore, we will work to create a safe, healthy and developing working environment in which all employees can unfold their professional and personal potential in the best possible way.
However, Asetek is responsible not only for facilitating employee conditions in a socially responsible and fair manner, but also for promoting a culture in which employees consistently act responsibly towards customers, colleagues, Asetek and society in general. We will also promote equality and diversity, including increasing the proportion of the underrepresented gender at all levels of management.
As part of our newly updated commitment to sustainable development (Asetek’s sustainability policy), we are committed to continuously work to identify, prevent or mitigate potential and actual adverse impacts on human rights that we may cause or contribute to.
