Diversity and equal treatment
Our goal is to be an inclusive workplace. It is important for us to provide the same preconditions irrespective of ethnicity, national origin, skin colour, language, religion or lifestyle. We always take these aspects into consideration in recruitments and in terms of development opportunities and salary setting.
Handicare works actively to achieve an even gender distribution in the Group. Since there is currently a surplus of men among our employees, in new recruitment we will prioritise female applicants if several applicants have the same qualifications. Opportunities for further development, training and careers are gender neutral. At 31 December 2017, 28 percent of the employees in the Group were women.
Handicare’s personnel policy is based on equal pay for equal work, which means that, all other factors being equal, men and women receive the same pay.
In the Group, we have various policies to promote equality and equal treatment in relation to recruitment and remuneration. In 2018, the goal is to develop a joint policy that applies to the entire company, with the addition of any legal requirements in certain countries.
