Employee & Society Care

We agree that employees should enjoy the human rights and labor rights and benefits as claimed by the International Labour Organization (ILO). Thus, we treat employees with respect and without discrimination. We have also established regulations to prevent harsh and inhumane treatment, including sexual harassment, sexual abuse, physical coercion, or verbal abuse of employees. We also grant employees the right to freedom of association according to the law.
