Responsibility to our people

Four pillars of sustainability

For each of the four pillars identified from the materiality index, a set of policies and guidelines were established to structure RWS’s activities in each area.

Responsibility to our people

  • Foster working conditions which support effective health and safety programmes, non-discrimination principles as well as human and labour rights. (SDG 3, SDG 5, SDG 10) 
  • Health and Safety for our employees is extremely important and our operations are therefore reviewed and monitored regularly; RWS is committed at the highest level to a robust health and safety policy. (SDG 3) 
  • During the Covid-19 pandemic, all staff have worked from home for various periods of time. The senior management team has been in regular communication with staff globally, both through virtual meetings and through an enhanced group intranet which has provided information and advice on how to cope with working from home to ensure the mental and physical well-being of our teams. (SDG 3) 
  • Provide an environment that allows good career and professional-development opportunities and enables all RWS employees to fulfil their potential, therefore allowing the Group to retain and attract highly talented professionals. (SDG 4, SDG 8) 
  • Foster diversity among our teams based on the Group’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy. (SDG 5, SDG 10) 
  • Train our professionals to improve existing skills and develop new capacities. (SDG 4)
