Making our diversity an asset

In an interconnected world, success often boils down to human diversity. In our company, this diversity gives rise to an entire spectrum of talent, experience and perspectives. Diversity thus plays a significant role when it comes to innovative strength and strategic foresight. It ensures well-rounded decisions, fresh ideas and new perspectives that Hager Group can harness to tap into new growth potential.

With over 60 nationalities and a huge range of cultural backgrounds, languages and lifestyles, we already boast a highly diverse workforce. A Diversity Manager was appointed in 2012 to focus on diversity; we approach it from four different angles:

Multicultural approach

We use the term multicultural to mean the coexistence of several cultures within the same organisation. Today at Hager Group many different cultures and 61 nationalities work together. This is a valuable asset, which allows our company to share different perspectives, offer varied experiences and develop new synergies.

For us to accelerate and support our international development, it is crucial that we further improve our understanding of these different cultures.

What are the benefits for our competitiveness?

  • adapting more easily to new environments
  • a more sensible and sustainable international presence
  • greater capacity for innovation and creativity in increasingly diverse teams
Gender balance

Through this commitment, we seek to ensure that employees of both sexes enjoy equal opportunities for development, training and progress. Our development policy and Care Management programme support our gender equality ambitions.

What are the benefits for our competitiveness?

  • proven effectiveness of mixed teams - complementary management
  • an asset for attracting and retaining existing talent and potential co-workers
  • a richer and more complete employee development policy

Disability is a broad term that includes all forms of physical, sensory, mental, intellectual and cognitive impairment. It also covers various types of chronic disease and unseen disabilities. It can be permanent or temporary. Disability is a habitual facet of the human condition, which can affect anyone, whatever their age.

For Hager Group, disability does not mean inability, but rather a different kind of ability. This definition, which is true to our values, underlies the various actions we undertake to raise awareness about disability among our teams and enables us to help our employees with disabilities to follow their personal and professional development.

What are the benefits for our competitiveness?

  • direct link to our "building automation" product range, AAL
  • a source of fresh talent
  • increased proximity to disability-related communities around us
Inter-generational approach

Generally speaking, the term "intergenerational" describes a situation in which several age groups coexist within the same organisation. In the business world, it also means the length of service of the various employees working in a company or within a team. Employee expectations do change from one generation to another, therefore management styles must adapt to allow everyone to find their own place and thrive in their work setting. This is what we are looking to highlight and develop through our actions in this area.

What are the benefits for our competitiveness?

  • developing individual skills
  • sharing and transferring knowledge and know-how
  • helping our employees to develop on a personal and a professional level
