We encourage a working environment where every individual is empowered to perform at her/his best, and all our people can innovate and develop. We continuously build and foster a culture that enables our employees to become the best version of themselves.

The topics that we find important:

  • Diversity
  • Health and safety
  • Human rights and labor rights
  • Training and development

Our efforts to provide a good working environment contribute to SDG 5 (Gender equality) and SDG 8 (Decent work and economic growth) with policies on gender equality and providing a decent and safe working environment for almost 3,000 employees worldwide.

Diversity

We work together as one team and appreciate the unique contribution that every employee makes. We treat each other with respect and are confident that we can achieve more if people with diverse backgrounds and different talents work together in a pleasant, safe and inclusive working environment. We treat everyone equally and do not discriminate. Fagron strives for diversity in the broadest possible sense. In addition, we focus on the following themes in particular:

  • Gender equality
  • Nationality & ethnicity
  • Age
  • Employment opportunities for people with a disability

Our target for 2025:

  • 50/50 male/female distribution in all management.
  • 1/3rd of senior management is female.

Employee engagement

Fagron believes that engaged employees have a positive impact on company performance. Every two years we conduct a Global Employee Survey. Part of this Global Employee Survey is a sustainable engagement score, the intensity of the connection between employees and Fagron.

Our target for 2024:

  • Sustainable engagement score of at least 80%.

Health and safety

Fagron continuously ensures that all its employees can perform their work in a clean and safe environment. There is a zero-tolerance policy towards actions that could endanger the health and safety of our employees and others. By proactively monitoring and resolving identified risks, we strive to prevent or minimize injury and damage to health.

Our annual target:

  • 0 fatalities and high-consequence work related-injuries.

Human rights and labor rights

We do not accept human rights and labor rights infringements in our facilities.

Training and development

Fagron values the development of its employees highly. Our continuous feedback cycle enables employees and management to give each other regular feedback. At the beginning of each year, employees determine together with their manager their individual development objectives. The outcomes of the regular check-ins are collected and used for the year-end evaluation.

Our annual target:

  • 80% of employees have an annual employee career development and performance discussion.
