Creating Value in the Workplace
Bring value to our people, customers, environment and the communities
It makes sense a company that brings comfort solutions to its customers and consumers also focuses on bringing similar benefits to its people. Creating a work environment that prioritizes the well-being, development and creativity of our employees is what we strive for at Hanon Systems.
Hanon Systems views its employees as valued partners in the business, and supports and promotes a working environment that embodies safe and fair labor practices, inclusivity, and mutual trust and respect. We want our employees to feel comfortable in the place they work, free from harassment or discriminatory behavior of any form. It is our responsibility to nurture this culture and to embed proactive approaches to equal opportunity and diversity within global operations. A diverse workforce brings different ideas, different experiences, and different backgrounds together, and helps to build a more resilient and global organization.

Health and Safety
The health and safety of our employees is paramount. At Hanon Systems, robust safety measures and training are in place to ensure our employees return home safe each day and integrate safe thinking into everything they do. Hanon Systems maintains OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety Management certification and assurance covering all global facilities, and carries out regular workshops, training sessions, and campaigns to keep safety awareness top of mind.
As with any organization, employees spend a substantial portion of their day in their workplace. It is therefore important that, while with us, employees are made aware of ways their health can be improved both inside and outside of work and to provide them a platform on which to do so. At Hanon Systems, various health support initiatives are made available around the globe, including campaigns on healthy eating, ergonomics, stress management and work-life balance. A large number of our locations also provide sports-based programs including fitness and yoga classes, cycle-to-work schemes, team sports and running.
One safety incident is one too many. We aim to have safety on everyone’s mind every second, every minute of every day in Hanon Systems. Hanon Systems annual Global Safety Day gives us another platform on which to create global dialogue and lessons on safe practices at work. As well as special presentations, poster campaigns and workshops, a video message from senior management is also provided in each of our global languages.

Reminding employees about the importance of safety need not be limited to only safety workshops, walks and presentations. At Hanon Systems, safety quizzes and games are also regularly organized to keep awareness levels high. Employees at Hanon Systems Coclisa plant in Mexico participate in Safety Bingo, a game that involves the collection of safety slogans on Bingo cards in order to reinforce important safety matters taught in weekly single-point lessons.
In April, 2015, Hanon Systems in Gebze, Turkey were presented with the “Good EH&S Practice” Award by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, at the first ceremony of its kind in the region.

Hanon Systems in Kerpen, Germany, held a Fit at Work Day to increase awareness on a number of health issues including musculoskeletal disorders and healthy eating.
