Policy and goals
With a strong foundation in the Model Company statement, the VELUX Group has always had a natural focus on being a good and inclusive workplace for all employees. Our intention is that our workforce should reflect the demography in the surrounding society.
In 2013, the VELUX A/S board set the objective of increasing the number of women on the board by at least one woman (equal to 40%) by 1 April 2017.
In 2016, two additional women joined the VELUX A/S Board of Directors, resulting in three out of six, or 50%, of the board members (members elected by the General Assembly) being female.
We try to encourage more female managers and ensure equal opportunities for development.
In the recruitment process of managers and other key positions, we try to encourage more women by requesting that a female candidate is presented in all recruitments.
To ensure equality, we apply a company-wide performance evaluation tool and external benchmark. Similarly, a structured annual evaluation of managers and administrative staff provides transparency and an objective approach to career development and appointment of managers.
