Gerson Relocation is pleased to announce that we are now an official Signatory of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). Together with this network of over 13,000 companies and 3,000 non-businesses who are committed to building a sustainable future, our working practice will be guided by the values of the UNGC and focus on the following 10 principles:
Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights; and
Principle 2: make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining;
Principle 4: the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labour;
Principle 5: the effective abolition of child labour; and
Principle 6: the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.
Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges;
Principle 8: undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility; and
Principle 9: encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.
Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
By incorporating these 10 UN Global Compact principles into our daily operating strategies, policies and procedures, Gerson Relocation are establishing a culture of integrity within our workplace. This not only empowers our basic responsibilities to people and our planet but also sets us on course for long-term sustainable success.
Whether you have a global HR department or just require corporate relocation assistance for key individuals, these 10 principles will help re-affirm that Gerson Relocation is a responsible global moving company and a suitable partner for your global mobility needs.
