We have processes and tools in place to ensure our compliance with national laws and the UN declaration of human rights. We have implemented group-wide:
Generally, recruitment is based solely on the skills and professional experience required for a position. Job offers are formatted in a neutral style to be attractive to both men and women, with standardised recruitment processes, regardless of gender. The same opportunities for professional development are offered to all employees. Fair remuneration is an essential component of professional equality among men and women; and Amadeus guarantees that salary systems are built in such a way as to prevent discrimination.
In particular, in regards to equal pay for women and men, we have a procedure in place across Amadeus. Before the start of the annual reviews, managers are reminded about their obligations towards equal remuneration between men and women. During salary reviews, various steps are in place to ensure equal treatment between employees.
In line with our commitment to uphold the principles of the Diversity Charter in France, we also encourage initiatives that include and involve people with disabilities. Our Company collaborates closely with several associations that support disabled people within the company and in the community. Whenever possible, we contract some services with companies whose mission is to employ disabled people.
Working with the Handi Project in Nice (France) since 2004, we have set a number of priorities on different levels. One of the top priorities is to support staff affected by a disabling illness or disability, to help them keep their position or find a suitable alternative role. There are simple measures such as adapting their work space or working hours if required, and also tools that can be put in place. For instance, we have been working on solutions such as a phone system for deaf persons and a special screen for visually impaired employees.
We are also set on enlarging our pool of candidates by working with external organisations which help us source and recruit disabled staff. The Amadeus recruitment site includes a Handi Project page presenting Amadeus as an equal opportunities employer and encouraging candidates to send their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Searches for potential candidates are also carried out on specialised sites such as Hanploi and Monster.
