Aware of the huge strategic value of People, Brembo works constantly to boost, on the one hand, the sense of belonging and the motivation of everyone who works for the Group and, on the other, to consolidate its image as a “best place to work”, as witnessed by the places obtained in Employer Branding-related rankings, such as the 2019 ranking drawn by Universum which saw Brembo among the first thirty italian employers in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) field.
Brembo’s well-established global presence means that the company operates in very different contexts in economic and cultural terms. And it is in the Group’s nature to consider this diversity as one of its strengths. Brembo works daily to promote and enhance a culture that, since recruitment, values internal diversity, fostering an environment in which everyone’s point of view, voice, individuality and specific skills count and where everyone can not only feel an integral part of Brembo, but also contribute to the Group’s success.
The promotion of diversity in the broader sense of the word is a priority for Brembo. This is expressed through a respect for codes and internal policies, as well as through the construction of special training paths included in the broader context of the Group’s training offer dedicated to management and employees. In fact, in order to make a concrete contribution to improving the level of awareness and understanding of this topic, the Group’s own training offer provides support and assistance to people through various types of initiatives, both ad hoc, and relating to matters of diversity in the broader context of leadership paths, with a particular focus on the roles of intermediate managers. This is without overlooking the role of individual contributors, namely every employee who, although not responsible for a team, can and indeed must contribute to maintaining work environments that encourage the promotion of diversity.
With reference to the protection of diversity and respect for people and workers’ human rights, Brembo has formalised, in addition to the provisions set out in the Group’s Code of Ethics, the Code of Basic Working Conditions and the Policy on Non Discrimination and Diversity (both of which are available from
www.brembo.com/en/company/corporate-governance/codes-policies). Both documents reflect and represent the universal beliefs of the Group and the foundations of the employer-worker relationship. In detail, they confirm and establish rules of conduct regarding on the one hand child labour, forced labour and the treatment of human beings, harassment, discrimination and corruption; on the other hand regarding freedom of association and collective bargaining, the right to work, health and safety, working hours, remuneration, environment, sustainability, social commitment and relations with local communities.
