At Amadeus, we want to grow and nurture a global, highly skilled and motivated workforce:
With the rapid growth of our business and an increasingly diverse business portfolio and employee base, Amadeus embarked on an effort to adapt its company values. Following the definition of the evolved Amadeus values & behaviours during 2011, in 2012 we rolled-out these values throughout the company, following a top-down approach. Workshops were organised to spread the evolved Amadeus values to our employees and they gave employees the opportunity to see how the behaviours are applied in daily situations.
Multiculturalism, respect and openness are at the heart of our identity. With employees from 110 countries speaking over 53 languages, our staff enriches the company with its different experiences and backgrounds. We have over 80 nationalities represented in our central sites in Spain, France and Germany.
We explicitly outline a multicultural approach as the first of the primary core competencies required of our employees.
At Amadeus we believe that protecting the rights and dignity of each member of our company in all situations is vital and worth standing up for. To this end, we believe in equal opportunity and fair treatment for all. We explicitly and categorically reject any and all forms of discrimination based on gender, race, ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, family status, religion or political beliefs. We adhere to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. At a local level, Amadeus in Sophia-Antipolis has signed the French Diversity Charter.
We take allegations of discrimination very seriously. To our knowledge, there were no reported discrimination incidents against the company during 2012.
