Human Rights at Benatav
D.M. Benatav is a global industrial company that specializes in the winding and production of coils, sensors and electronic components, and which prioritizes human dignity, rights, and the ability to thrive in every aspect of its business operations. This ideal is part of the core values of our company and its shareholders.
We believe in the value of all human beings and their fundamental rights, as reflected in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the principles defined in the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
We meticulously adhere to traditional ethical standards that facilitate the value of human dignity, without discrimination and regardless of how the person in question pertains to our business.
Benatav’s Human Rights Policy describes the way in which we apply those values, and serves as a declaration of commitment on the part of the company’s management and its executives. This is a guiding principle for each and every one of the managers and employees with regard to all of our business operations and a promise to our employees, business partners, vendors and all of the other people with whom we interact.
Our Human Rights Policy applies to all of the company’s employees and it pertains to the human rights of several groups of people:
- Our employees.
- The employees that form part of our extended supply chain.
- Our consumers.
- Members of the communities in which we live and operate.
The process of upholding human rights is primarily based on a sense of respect towards all members of society. We aspire to create a culture of dignity throughout our organization on the basis of such values as caring, teamwork and responsibility. Human dignity means the aspiration to understand human beings and to conduct ourselves in ways that foster trust, integrity and justice. Our fundamental commitment consists of doing everything we can to respect the rights of everyone we interact with.
We have adopted the principle of diversity throughout our organization, and we encourage tolerant thought and inclusion in all of our actions. This includes:
- The hiring of employees from different backgrounds and facilitating the inclusion of “otherness” at the workplace. We object to discrimination on the basis of race, skin color, religion, physical disability, national background, age, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, marital status, civil status or any other characteristic of otherness.
