In line with our commitment to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, Huhtamaki is committed to building on our rich history of diversity by continuously fostering and cultivating an environment of inclusion and belonging for our employees, the communities we operate in, the customers we serve, and the suppliers we do business with.
We value and embrace our employees’ differences in race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, veteran, marital or domestic partner status, citizenship, family relationship and other characteristics that make our employees unique. The collective sum of these individual differences, experience, knowledge, unique capabilities, and talent of our employees enables us to successfully serve our diverse markets around the world and provide for a positive employee experience at all of our sites.
Our global growth has enriched our workforce with the local cultures and nationalities of the markets we operate in. In addition, we attract talent from all backgrounds. In our headquarters alone the company’s nationality count is 15, and our workforce is equally represented by all age groups between 25 and 65, with increasingly strong representation of female leadership in which exceeds that of the general workforce in an industry that is not traditionally perceived as female oriented.
