Gender equality, diversity, health and safety and human rights
In today’s society, a diverse team that enjoys equal treatment is a very valuable asset for companies and organizations. All entities should understand and leverage this potential advantage.
We analyze the situation at companies and develop equality plans, diversity policies and human rights protocols.
We provide advice on application of work/life balance measures (paid leave, extended leave, reduced working hours and flexible working arrangements, etc.) and on securing equal opportunity employer status and certification.
We design and implement human resource management models that ensure best practices in terms of equality, work/life balance and diversity, and that place occupational health and risk prevention at the heart of corporate sustainability strategies.
