The Group works continuously to ensure a discrimination-free environment, where every employee is treated equally, independently of their gender, origin, ethnicity, skin color, language, religion or personal philosophy.
One of the Group’s goals is to provide a workplace without discrimination because of disabilities. The company will arrange for individually adapted workplaces and work tasks (where possible) for employees or work applicants with disabilities.
The Group has always emphasized individual skills, performance and responsibility in its recruitment policy and salary system. Furthermore, the Group at all times ensures equal employment opportunities and rights for all employees, both men and women. The Group has an international working environment and a number of our employees have cross-cultural backgrounds.
In recent years, the Group has seen an increase in the proportion of women in previously traditional "male-dominated" occupations, such as aquaculture and wild fishery. We see the same trend in different study directions for the seafood industry. This will lead the way for a better gender balance in the future.
Lerøy finds that the gender balance is positive for the working environment. In recent years, the Group has seen an increase in the proportion of female employees in the companies, and aims to increase the proportion of women further in the coming years.
