We commit to create a respectful, positive, and diverse working environment. To attract, develop, and retain highly skilled employees is a top priority, and we commit to the development of our employees’ skills, knowledge, and creative potential. We support creativity, entrepreneurial behavior, and result-oriented actions to encourage our people live our values: One Autoliv, Agile, Transparent, and Innovative. By respecting each other and working together, we achieve better results.
We commit to fair treatment of our employees including fair and equitable employment conditions in accordance with applicable laws. We recognize and respect employees’ right to freedom of association and collective bargaining, we provide humane and safe working conditions, prohibit forced or child labor, and promote a workplace free of discrimination and harassment.
We commit to securing the wellbeing of our employees. Health and safety is more than an element of our business – it is our business – and we work diligently to reduce and eliminate occupational hazards. We also commit to adhere to required standards for the safe operation of facilities and the protection of our employees, our customers and the people of the communities in which we do business; seeking continuous improvement of the health and safety performance; and maintaining a culture that encourages the reporting, analysis and effective management of health and safety issues.
We commit to diversity and acknowledge, accept and value differences among our people and the contributions they make. Our workforce reflects the diversity of the countries and cultures in which we operate. We work hard to create an inclusive environment where all people can contribute regardless of differentiating factors by encouraging individuals’ unique viewpoints and contributions. We believe each person should be able to work in a professional atmosphere which promotes equal employment opportunity and prohibits illegal, discriminatory practices.
Autoliv commits to improve diversity and to increase number of women in the workforce at all levels. At the end of 2015, 46% of the workforce are women and 13% of senior management positions are filled by women. The number of women in management is increasing and we are striving to improve this even more in the future.
We are particularly proud that one of our female leaders, Lisa Frary, Vice President Quality Autoliv North America, has been named as one of 100 Leading Women in the North American Auto Industry by automotive News.
We also developed the global AS330 Health & Safety Management System (HSMS) based on internationally recognized standards. AS330 guides us in sustaining an effective HSMS to ensure the health, safety and wellness of our employees.
Our employee’s health and safety is an absolute priority.
