WE STAND TOGETHER
We stand alongside the African American/Black community, support minorities, and refuse to accept racism, intolerance, and inequality in our workplaces and our communities.
There is still much work to do, but what is non-negotiable is taking action, supporting our people, ensuring their voices are heard, and amplifying our own voices in support of change.
We strive to foster conversation and educate about bias and racism in all forms.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Semis’s commitment to our people and to accelerating equality for all has never been more relevant today – to drive our innovation agenda and act as responsible business leaders.
It enables us to attract, develop, inspire, and reward top talent. And it creates an environment that unleashes innovation, allows our people to perform at their very best, and underpins a culture in which everyone feels they have an equal opportunity to belong and build a career.
This commitment starts at the top, and we expect leaders to help create and sustain a culture of equality where everyone can advance and thrive. Our areas of focus include gender, ethnicity, LGBT, religion, persons with disabilities, and cross-cultural diversity.
We strive to ensure that all our people are compensated fairly and equitably from the moment we hire them through the milestones of their careers here. When we see a disparity for any of our people, we fix it.
Our commitment to inclusion and diversity unleashes innovation andcreates a culture where everyone has equal opportunity
A COMITTMENT TO OUR PEOPLE
Diversity is not just the right way. It makes us see the world from different angles; it makes us more innovative, creating value every day.
Discover how our commitment to our people from a variety of cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds creates value.
We believe the future workforce is an equal one with equal opportunities for everyone. Within the Semis group, we maintain a firm commitment to our human capital as our best asset and the key to our success. We are firmly behind a social model committed to professional excellence and quality of life for our employees.
Our corporate policy focuses on creating a favorable labor relations framework based on equality of opportunity, non-discrimination, and respect for diversity. We are fully committed to no gender discrimination and continuously monitor and advance our strategies against bias, unfair treatment and discrimination internally and externally.
EMPOWERING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
We are committed to accelerating equality for all and to creating an inclusive, accessible workplace that support persons with disabilities.
Companies that embrace best practices for employing and supporting more persons with disabilities in their workforce have outperformed their peers.
Research shows that companies supporting disability employment and inclusion have, on average, a 28 percent higher revenue, double the net income, and 30 percent higher economic profit margins than their peers. U.S. GDP could get a boost of up to US$25 billion if more persons with disabilities joined the labor force.
SUPPORTING OUR LGBT+ COMMUNITY
We embrace authenticity at work–including sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. When our employees excel, we excel. It’s for this reason that we are proud to support our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) staff, promoting equality for employees regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
HOW WE SUPPORT LGBT+
We communicate a clear mission to all of your employees, including managers and senior staff, through education and diversity training about our inclusion policies and strategies for supporting LGBT+ employees.
Take discrimination seriously
We established a strong anti-discrimination policy in our recruitment & promotion practices, to ensure all employees know what is not tolerated in the workplace, and in cases of homophobic bullying, promptly recognize the problem and take action.
Support for LGBT+ employees
We develop and mentor employee networking groups, seminars, and conferences to create a natively inclusive environment.
LGBT+ friendly benefits
We offer equal benefits to all employees, regardless of their sexual orientation, including parental leave, adoption leave, and time off to take care of dependants.
We assess the inclusion and diversity matters we face, set strategic direction, and prioritize our actions globally. We believe that government laws, regulations, and business practices should uphold the principles of equality and that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion, or sexual orientation.
While laws may vary in the countries where we operate, we remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace.
