We believe that our ability to innovate and grow is rooted in the diversity of thought and creativity of our people. Fresh ideas are born in a workplace culture that promotes inclusion and equality.
A balanced gender representation benefits both individuals and the business. Although the diversity landscape is changing, some industries still struggle to attract and retain women. Like many other companies in our sector, we face a challenge in achieving a balanced gender representation in our workforce. We are therefore taking a proactive approach to hiring women and providing developmental opportunities aimed at increasing gender diversity. At the end of 2016, 22 percent of employees (24 percent of middle managers) were women.
We are objective, transparent and proactive when it comes to increasing the number of female future leaders. This is embedded within our talent review process, which is based on ability and potential, above all other attributes. In 2017, we welcomed a gender advisory panel made up of 15 men and women across the business to help us understand cultural factors affecting women gaining leadership positions, and develop an action plan. The specific aims of the panel were to define key needs to increase gender diversity, review and critique current people processes and their gender focus, introduce best practices, provide input to the Global Leadership Team around barriers to women and become visible ambassadors for women across Tetra Pak.
