We will develop our internal capability and expertise to deliver on our sustainability objectives
For any business, the workforce is a valuable asset, and a sound worker-management relationship is a key ingredient to the long-term sustainability of the enterprise and community at large. The protection of employees, pertaining to sickness, workplace accidents, sexual and racial discrimination, equality of opportunity, maternity protection and required occupational training are just some of the values and rights actively advocated for by Bi-silque in all the countries where we do business.
At Bi-silque, we globally demonstrate respect for and adhere to (at a minimum) local and international standards relating to labour and working conditions. As a member of the European Union, Portugal has a similar employment law system to that of its local trading countries, in respect to both its architecture and solutions. In addition, the country’s membership in the union has led to the incorporation into its laws, a set of European directives on labour relations, which apply throughout the European Area.
In further support of these standards, Bi-silque’s Esmouriz factory has a free on site medical clinic managed by a nurse and doctor to ensure convenient, adequate and regular care in provided to its employees and their families.
Diversity & Inclusion
Bi-silque respects and appreciates differences in ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, education and religion. We all bring with us diverse perspectives, work experiences, life styles and cultures. As a source and driver of innovation, diversity is imperative in both business and in society.
At Bi-silque, we know the power of diversity is unleashed when we respect and value differences. To this end, Bi-silque has created and implemented a Code of Conduct. The Code applies to all employees and contingent workers of Bi-silque, including those employed or retained by its wholly-owned subsidiaries, in all countries where Bi-silque does business.
