Fair Employment Policy Framework and Equal Opportunities
The Code of Conduct is the framework guide for the behavior of all OTE Group employees. It connects Group's commitment to respect the laws and regulations, with specific commitments relating to ethical behavior which together with the five Guiding Principles, underpin the Group's success. Priority in formulation of all OTE and COSMOTE HR policies is meritocracy, transparency and nondiscrimination, which govern all decisions and actions related to issues such as hiring, wages, employee growth and development, and contract maturity.
The promotion of diversity and the harmonious synthesis of different skills, talents and experience of employees, men and women, add extra value to the Group, thereby ensuring its developmental perspective, while respecting the society in which it operates.
The Group Fair Employment Policy is based on respect of human rights, in accordance with the following:
• The regulatory framework in Greece and the EU
• The United Nations Global Compact
• The OTE Group Code of Conduct
• The OTE Group Policy on Employee Relations
• The OTE Group Social Charter
