We are an equal opportunity employer. A career in DNV GL should not be hindered by age, nationality or gender if the employee has the competence, attitude and values needed for the role. Business and personal decisions will be taken in accordance with the general policy of equal treatment as defined by objective, comprehensible criteria.
Diversity is highly sought after in our company. To realize the potential in the organization, we strive for the diversity in the workforce to be reflected at all management levels. We strive to have a consistent, transparent and market-relevant compensation and benefit framework that supports the organization’s need for flexibility with respect to tasks, work location and career opportunities.
Our Code of Conduct is embedded in our Group Management System, and clearly states that discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, nationality, ethnic background, skin colour, political opinion, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, marital status, physical constitution or other personal characteristics is not tolerated. This is also stated in our Governing Documents on Reporting of Misconduct.
This aspect also covers equal remuneration and non-discrimination issues.
Project & Activities
In 2014 we continued to conduct mentoring programs and have senior managers located outside of headquarters to gain better knowledge of local communities and employees. The make-up of the total manager pool must show year-on-year improvement towards reflecting the composition of the DNV GL workforce.
There are many dimensions of diversity and DNV GL focus on three of them in particular: nationality, gender and age. DNV GL is actively managing its diversity in many areas of the organization such as: management team composition, succession management considerations, development course participants and more.
Reporting on Performance
In DNV GL, we describe diversity in terms of gender, age and nationality. We don’t consider ethnic groups or use the term ‘minority’, because in our global operations with a mobile workforce, a person of certain ethnic group could be considered part of the majority in one place where we operate, but a minority in another.
