It is important to us that all our employees feel valued and respected.
ERGA employs people of many different nationalities and expertise, fostering a culture of mutual respect and understanding, with equal opportunities for all.
A Code of Conduct is at the core of our shared ethical values and expectations. All employment decisions, such as hiring, training and promotion, are based on merit. A Whistleblowing Hotline enables our people to confidentially raise any concerns or issues, including those relating to human rights. We strongly believe that all our employees should demonstrate openness, transparency, honesty and trust.
We work constructively with the representatives of our employees and respect their right to join unions and enter collective agreements. Approximately 90% of our employees are trade union members, and collective bargaining agreements are in place at the majority of our operational entities.
