We respect human rights and strive to ensure that our work environment enables us to attract, retain and fully engage diverse talent regardless of race, gender, transgender identity or expression, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, parenthood, disability, religion or belief, age or any other factor. We encourage and expect everyone to actively support and maintain an equal and supportive work environment free of all discrimination and harassment. Equality and diversity mean that people have equal rights, opportunities and obligations in all areas. It is a natural principle throughout our business operations, including areas such as recruitment, competence development and performance, and reward management.

We have a special focus on diversity and inclusion and work actively to abolish any kind of discrimination. Diversity and inclusion are an essential part of the Roschier Way guidelines and are identified as a business imperative for the firm. We work closely with our personnel to enhance and increase awareness relating to these questions. We follow our diversity plan in order to mitigate the risk of any kind of discrimination. Trainings on diversity and inclusion and human rights are offered to all personnel throughout their Roschier career path.

By engaging our people in everyday actions, and ensuring that everyone has the same opportunities, we strive to develop both our firm and the industry. The actions taken are continuously assessed, analyzed and evaluated within the framework of our annual diversity plan. We have zero tolerance for any kind of sexual or other harassment as well as reprisals, and our Roschier Way guidelines, available on the intranet, include clear instructions on how to take action.
