Progress 2019: Employee relations

20 February 2020
employee relations

A positive relationship with our employees and nurturing diversity is fundamental to our success as a business. This begins with ensuring respect for internationally recognised human rights and labour standards in all our workplaces.


All our employees will be treated fairly in a safe and healthy working environment, where each employee feels valued and can prosper.


Ensure compliance with the A.P. Moller-Maersk governance document on Global Employee Relations, which is based on internationally recognised labour standards.
By 2020, improve employee relations maturity level in the business by increasing management capabilities and mitigating risks of working with third-party labour in our supply chain.

Progress 2019

Strengthened management guidance on interactions with unions and work councils, and provided training for 71% of the target group using new e-learning modules on employee relations. Carried out labour rights assessment focusing on seafarers in Maersk.

Our whistleblower system received 141 cases related to potential violations of our Commit Rule on Employee Relations. 19 of the 141 cases have so far been substantiated while 68 are still undergoing assessment in accordance with the procedures established in the whistleblower system.
