SIKA’S FIRM COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY AND AN IMPROVED GENDER MIX

Sika’s global presence and associated proximity to customers make it immensely important to integrate different cultures and share experience and know-how across national boundaries. The company firmly believes that the diversity experienced daily by employees is one of the factors of its success, and it promotes an open and integrative culture. At courses and seminars, Sika managers are encouraged to give high priority to diversity in team and project planning. Forty-six nationalities are represented among Sika’s Senior Managers. Women account for 22.8% of the Group’s total headcount. Sika is constantly working to increase this percentage at all hierarchical levels and conducted initiatives during the period under review to improve the quota of female employees in the company. The declared goal is to recruit and promote more women, particularly in sales. Recruitment campaigns in various channels are increasingly targeting women.
