Promoting diversity on an equal footing
The globalization of our markets brings together many different cultures. We also reflect this diversity in our workforce. Our values form the central foundation for our international cooperation. They reflect the common ground of all employees in the CHT Group from more than 30 nationalities serving customers from over 100 countries worldwide. This diversity also has multiple implications for the CHT Group:
Diversity also refers to the demographic situation at our company. Within the CHT Group this varies greatly from region to region. The common goal is to maintain the ability of our employees to work in all phases of life and to ensure the availability of skilled workers in the long term. Teams of mixed ages can also benefit from linking different skills and perspectives.
The following measures were implemented to take account of the demographic situation.
We also promote diversity in management development. As a matter of principle, women and men have identical application and career opportunities with us and receive equal access to further education and training measures. In this way, we also seek to further increase the proportion of women at our management levels. In 2021, the proportion of female employees in the group worldwide was 31%. The proportion of women in management positions is to be increased to 30% within the CHT Group by 2025.
