HR Policy

It is FLSmidth’s vision to continuously strengthen our position as the preferred partner and leading supplier of equipment and services to the global cement and minerals industries.

We strive at conducting our business according to high ethical standards and set ambitious goals, and, based on our inherited values, we wish to ensure that our employees share our commitment and that they conduct business with integrity and professionalism.

Accordingly, it is our HR vision to be seen as an employer of choice. We seek to attract, develop and retain a highly qualified, competent and innovative workforce in order to support our business vision and stay competitive in the global marketplace. Our HR Philosophy is to encourage a learning and knowledge sharing culture for continuous innovation and development.

The competencies of our employees are of strategic importance to us, and we strive to help our employees to reach their full potential and excellent performance and success. Therefore, we spend considerable resources on continuing education and training of our employees, enabling the individual employee to continuously increase his or her employability and value to FLSmidth.

As our company thinks and acts globally, and as we continue to grow and become even more global, we see diversity as a business imperative that will help us serve our customers even better and thus supporting the future success of FLSmidth. We offer equal opportunities to all present and future employees, irrespective of gender, age, ethnic or national origin and religious beliefs, disability, political or sexual orientation and family status. We encourage our employees to play an active role in their community, but in respect of the diversity in our workforce, FLSmidth remains politically and religiously neutral and we expect our employees to do the same during working hours, while on the company’s premises and when acting on behalf of the company.

We offer an attractive and challenging place to work and an engaging culture built on our core values and global business results. We are committed to create a healthy, flexible and productive work environment that allows our employees to engage in a challenging career and attain the important balance between work and personal lives.

FLSmidth offers competitive employment conditions and remuneration and recognizes employees’ right to be organized and bargain collectively. We respect and support human rights and do not engage in child or forced labour.
