HR values and policies

Elementis is an inclusive and equal opportunity employer that relies on HR specialists throughout its global locations to ensure compliance with all applicable laws governing employment practices and to advise on all HR policies and practices, including for example recruitment and selection, training and development, promotion and retirement.

Elementis policies seek to create a workplace that has an open atmosphere of trust, honesty and respect. Harassment or discrimination of any kind based on race, colour, religion, gender, age, national origin, citizenship, mental or physical disabilities, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other similarly protected status or trait is not tolerated. This principle applies to all aspects of employment from recruitment and promotion, through to termination and all other terms and conditions of employment.

It is the Company’s policy not to discriminate on the basis of any unlawful criteria and its practices include the prohibition on the use of child or forced labour. In addition to employment policies, procedures and training to prevent child or forced labour in our workforce, our supply chain management practices include steps we take to ensure our wider supply chain is also free of child or forced labour, such as risk assessments, audits, self-certifying & monitoring compliance with standards etc. Employment policies are fair and equitable and consistent with the skills and abilities of the employee and the needs of the business. Employees are free to join a trade union or participate in collective bargaining arrangements.

It is also company policy, for employees who have a disability, to provide continuing employment under normal terms and conditions, where practicable, and to provide training, career development and promotion, as appropriate.

Elementis has processes in place for communicating with all its global employees. Employee communications include information about the performance of the Group, on major matters affecting their work, employment or workplace and to encourage them to get involved in social or community events. Corporate policies and compliance training materials etc are usually translated into the local language relevant to the location.
