Progress 2020: Employee relations
Our work on employee relations rests on the core belief that employees are essential to the development and success of our business. We act in accordance with international frameworks and conventions from the UN, OECD and ILO, as well as in compliance with local legislation where we operate.
Our leadership have access to support for their negotiations with employee representatives, where they discuss the local collective bargaining agreement. When the organisation changes, we have preestablished information and consultation processes with participation from both management and employees, and we work to ensure that all standards for employee relations are upheld.
The work to align our business to future demands and opportunities will continue, and we are taking action to enter these processes as prepared as possible. This includes building capacity in our management teams and reaching a level of maturity in the relationships between management and employee representatives, based on each terminal having a vision and strategy for employee relations.
Preparing for the future of Maersk, we are collaborating with Maersk’s Responsible Procurement and HSSE teams to ensure responsible practices in our end-to-end offerings, as our business expands on land and we take on greater responsibility for our customers’ supply chains. A particular focus area for this work is the working conditions of third-party labour.
Through our whistleblower hotline it is possible to report issues related to potential violations of HR-related laws, rules or company values.
