A MULTICULTURAL GROUP
Its workforce is spread widely over various countries in which the company has a strategic presence: Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, Germany, Mexico, Spain, the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Serbia, Thailand and Uruguay which represents a rich and complex multicultural environment and also presents a challenge and an opportunity for international development for the Group’s employees in which numerous knowledge transfer projects are carried out among various production facilities and specific global training seminars are performed for employees in the Group. The international nature of the Group is evidenced by the fact that people of 15 diferent nationalities currently work for it.
The Viscofan Group, through the Human Resources departments in its different subsidiaries, encourages the development of people by means of different initiatives through which to manage knowledge and make the most of its employees’ capacities in order to achieve the Group’s objectives.
Training is one of the Group’s fundamental objectives as far as people management is concerned. Training is provided on a continuous basis to bolster personal and professional development.
On the path towards the objective of improving our strategy to harness talent, more proactive initiatives have also been launched to highlight the visibility of the Group in order to anticipate business needs,and identifying and contacting the best talent worldwide, while covering future positions.
The challenges faced by the Viscofan Group include developing initiatives for employee professional and personal development and encouraging channels of communication which will enable it to leverage the talent of the Viscofan team.
SAFETY IN THE WORKPLACE
Viscofan is convinced that all accidents are avoidable and so, in addition to working to make its facilities safer, the group also strives to make all its employees aware of the fact that their attitude to safety is fundamental.
The Viscofan Group continues to work hard to standardise its procedures and communicate company policy in this field through specific courses and information made available to workers in their work areas. In order to carry out these initiatives, the Board of Directors has passed a Group EHS policy containing guidelines related to safety in the workplace.
