The definition of employment principles is essential for every organisation. Labgroup has a policy that promotes equality and non-discrimination in its day-to-day work. The company is committed to diversity in the workplace by implementing a non-discrimination policy in its hiring strategy. Each person is unique and a company has an obligation to accommodate individual differences. Labgroup ensures equal opportunities for people of any gender,
age, sexual orientation, religion, for people with disabilities and even more. The company provides a working environment that values the contributions of employees with a wide range of knowledge and experience.
Staff should feel involved and respected in their working environment. At Labgroup, we hire employees with reduced working capacity, people with disabilities, as well as seniors and young people such as students, interns and juniors (young people with limited work experience). In addition, the company ensures transparency of vacancies and selects its candidates according to an ethical and responsible procedure.
Respect for human rights and ethical commitment
Labgroup strives to respect human rights in their entirety and is ethically committed to its (approximately) 90 employees and all those who may interact with the company. The company’s clients are also made aware of these values, and the general terms and conditions of sale specify the need to respect Labgroup’s employees: no inappropriate behaviour, whether moral, physical or sexual harassment or inappropriate speech and/or gestures, is tolerated within the company when the employees travel to client organisations and/or in exchanges between the different parties.
Finally, by carefully selecting our suppliers, we ensure that we proactively contribute to the fight against:
- all forms of illegal labour,
- all forms of forced labour in accordance with the laws in force,
- child labour in accordance with the laws in force,
- all forms of discrimination in employment in accordance with ILO Convention No. 111.
Corporate communication and awareness trainings
Labgroup is committed to providing each employee with appropriate and regular training and updating of their knowledge to develop their skills and ensure that their qualifications match those needed to do their job.
Labgroup has set up a community website, which is accessible to all staff. Internal communications are regularly published on this website, which facilitates exchanges between all departments. An awareness and training publication tool is also used to sensitise employees. Indeed, the contribution of each employee is essential to reduce the environmental impact. Labgroup has decided to implement awareness campaigns to inform employees about good environmental practices (e.g. good energy use habits, turning off lights when not needed), including waste management, good recycling practices, etc.
The company regularly organises internal events such as “A morning in the life of…” or the Easter treasure hunt, concepts that encourage team spirit and strengthen cohesion between employees, with the aim of getting to know each other better and better understanding the daily tasks of colleagues. To this end, the corporate social network Yammer has also been introduced within Labgroup to encourage exchanges between employees, whether they are present in the office or based in other institutions, companies or even countries.
Sponsoring and extra-professional activities
Labgroup has been supporting various local associations for many years and regularly makes donations to support good causes. Many Labgroup employees are members of an association or belong to a sports club or volunteer in humanitarian organisations. These commitments outside of work deserve to be valued! Therefore, the management has decided to support employees who participate – whether it is a cultural, sporting, ecological or charitable activity – in these extra-professional activities.
The aim? To encourage employees who invest time and energy in a good cause (e.g. the Echternach Triathlon, ING Marathon, Relais pour la Vie, the Partage Luxembourg association, etc.).
