Through our membership in the Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) and as a signatory of UN Global Compact, Nordic Semiconductor is committed to respect and support human rights and workers’ rights. Nordic Semiconductor shall uphold and protect internationally proclaimed human rights and workers’ rights as understood by the international community.
Nordic Semiconductor does not tolerate harsh or inhumane treatment of workers, including any sexual harassment, sexual abuse, corporal punishment, mental or physical coercion, or verbal abuse. Nordic Semiconductor has implemented a Non-Discrimination policy to clearly state that employees have the rights to not be harassed or discriminated. This is communicated to all employees in the internal company manual, and in introductory training when onboarding. Employees are encouraged to report any potential discrimination (or other ethical misconduct) through the company’s whistleblower channel. Regular employee satisfaction surveys and appraisal reviews also includes questions regarding discrimination to detect and address potential discrimination issues.
