People and organisation
Norske Skog’s people and organisation strategy is to maintain a business oriented, international organisation that attracts and retains highly competent and motivated employees on all levels around the world. We strive to give people the opportunity to grow personally and professionally in a stimulating working environment.
Professional leadership implies sound and transparent people performance management, including providing a working environment in which everyone can apply their competence and systematically develop their abilities. Management shall encourage, promote innovative ways of working efficiently and safely together with high quality work with little to no rework, and support proactive behaviour. Discussions and conversations, both of professional and social nature, shall be held in a respectful and including manner.
Norske Skog fully supports the individual employee’s right to join a trade union, and fully acknowledges the unions’ rights according to international conventions and national regulations. Elected employee representatives have been assigned with the important task of promoting the common interests of our work force, as well as supporting individual employees in protecting their employee interests.
Norske Skog shall respect and support the human rights of all individuals potentially affected by our operations. These human rights are defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and related UN documents. Through our operations, we are committed to the economic and human development of our employees and the communities in which we operate. It is important that Norske Skog employees do not deliberately or negligently abuse human rights principles, or contribute to human rights abuses.
Norske Skog is committed to an inclusive work culture, and appreciates and recognizes that all people are unique and valuable and should be respected for their individual abilities and views. Norske Skog is committed to the principles of non-discrimination and care for vulnerable individuals and groups, and does not accept any form of harassment or discrimination on the basis of gender, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, cultural background, social group, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, age or political opinion.
Norske Skog shall promote diversity and inclusion by providing equal employment opportunities and treat all employees fairly and with respect. Norske Skog’s employees and business units shall only use merit, qualifications and other professional criteria as basis for employee-related decisions in Norske Skog, such as recruitment, training, compensation and promotion. We shall also show commitment to developing programs and actions to encourage a diverse organization based on the principle of equal opportunities.
