Respecting human rights and embracing diversity
At Bekaert, we believe in working together to achieve better performance. We embrace diversity which is a major source of strength for our company. This applies to diversity in terms of nationality, cultural background, age or gender, but also in terms of capabilities, business experience, insights and views.
We are committed to providing equal opportunity in employment and to respecting the rights and dignity of each employee. We recognize and appreciate the cultural identity in the countries in which we operate and do business. We promote equal opportunity and do not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of age, race, nationality, social or ethnic descent, gender, physical disability, sexual preference, religion, political preference, or union membership.
The recruitment, remuneration, application of employment conditions, training, promotion and career development of our employees are based on professional qualifications only. (GRI 102-12)
We support the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the conventions, and the recommendations of its International Labor Organization.
