Mabion S.A. pursues a policy of equal opportunities for all employees, in terms of sex, race or age. Neither job descriptions nor remuneration levels are differentiated depending on any of the above factors. Employees are evaluated based on their competence and periodical performance appraisals. The Company actively pursues a policy of protection of pregnant women and women on maternity leave, granting them a number of special rights. Where necessary, female employees who are pregnant, have recently given birth to a child or who are breastfeeding are transferred to positions which do not pose risks to their health. We also draw attention to the fact that the Company respects parental rights of female and male employees alike, i.e. the right to additional childcare leave (Article 188 of the Labour Code).
The Company employs people of various ages. Religion does not affect employment, either, as religious issues are not discussed during the recruitment process or employment. Therefore Mabion has been pursuing an equal employment opportunity policy in various dimensions of its operation since its incorporation. The Company’s policy is rooted in the European Union’s Directives (including, among other things, Council Regulation (EC) No. 1083/2006).
Each employee of the Company has access to his/her rights and obligations and values embedded in our corporate culture, which translates into clarity and transparency of mutual expectations and rules of conduct in everyday work.

Continued efforts to train employees are yet another dimension. Relevant departments are the starting point for the training programme. Away training days and one on one training are managed by relevant business units. Each employee has equal access to the professional education programme and may decide about the type and pace of promotions on his or her own. High appraisal scores and laboratory or process work experience level predispose employees to be included in the semi-annual promotion procedure. The promotion procedure envisages professional development in terms of scientific, process or functional positions. Process and quality control position exams are held in writing and it is on their basis that employees are promoted, while functional position exams are oral or written. The Company makes it possible for employees to continually improve their qualifications by supporting training initiatives and assisting employees in taking and completing PhD courses. This policy ensures that employees are fully committed to the Company and their jobs.
The above corporate policy is being continually developed as the Management Board of Mabion S.A. uses its best efforts for Mabion to remain an attractive and competitive employer.
