The Code of Conduct is based on two sources: the "Partnering Against Corruption Initiative” of the World Economic Forum, which the Zumtobel Group signed in September 2004; and our own Corporate Values.
By maintaining the highest ethical standards we lay the foundations for sustained progress in the Zumtobel Group’s competitiveness and market position.
Our Corporate Values and this Code of Conduct help us to make the right decisions and to act in a fair, trustworthy and impartial manner at all times, towards both our internal colleagues and our external partners.
Achieving a good mix of all age groups and hence a balanced age structure in the organisation is a major concern for the company.
The Zumtobel Group attaches great importance to internationalism and interculturality, not least because of its global growth strategy. Short-term exchange programmes and longer-term foreign assignments offer employees attractive development opportunities. This is backed up by language courses and intercultural training sessions as well as various activities intended to facilitate the integration of international employees.
The rules regarding variable pay for middle and senior management were modified in May 2012. Sliding variable pay scales over three years with tiers that are based on the extent to which targets for the respective year are fulfilled make sure that managers focus on sustainable decision-making.
Pay is basically classified by systematic grading; this ensures that remuneration is in line with technical qualifications and also fair and appropriate. This also excludes the possibility of any gender-specific unfairness.
