Human rights and equality

Raisio respects the UN declaration of human rights and the fundamental principles and rights at work as defined by the ILO.

These rights cover the freedom of association, the right to organise or not to organise, the right to collective bargaining, the elimination of forced and compulsory labour, as well as child labour, and the employees' right to equal treatment and opportunities.

All employees are entitled to a safe work environment. Behaviour that is mentally or physically coercive, threatening, offensive or abusive is not permitted.

Employees are selected for their duties based on their personal traits and skills.
Continuous learning and self-development are made possible by internal and external training and on-the-job learning. Discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or political beliefs is prohibited.

One of the targets of the equality plan is to increase the share of women in managerial posts and management teams. In 2015, Raisio's management team consisted of two women and eight men.

Raisio mainly employs local staff at all of its sites.
