50Hertz owes its success entirely to the dedication of its employees. It is the company’s responsibility to help them develop their skills, foster their health and commitment, involve them in decisions and guarantee equal opportunities for all. As part of our ActNow programme, we have set ourselves specific targets in the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion and health and safety and have established a series of measures related to these areas. The development of our values-based corporate culture is one of the company’s top objectives; these values form the strategic basis for all staff-related decisions. Within the senior management team, responsibility for strategic staffing issues lies with the Chief Human Resources Officer.
We publish 5-year business plans on an annual basis; these serve as a framework for qualitative and quantitative staff planning. 50Hertz complies with international guidelines which extend beyond its collective agreements and company agreements, such as the core labour standards of the International Labour Organization (ILO: C87, C98 and C135) and the worker’s rights set out in the UN Global Compact.
50Hertz is committed to promoting diversity out of conviction and in accordance with ILO Convention 111. 50Hertz is committed to valuing all employees equally regardless of gender, gender identity, country of origin, age, ethnicity, religious or political affiliation, sexual orientation or social origin. Everyone is supported to succeed and can contribute to the lasting success of 50Hertz; employees are only assessed based on their performance, leadership qualities, conduct, knowledge and skills.
