Our approach to recruiting and hiring is one that promises a fair and equal chance for all candidates. We set out to select the best person for a position - regardless of sex, race, colour, religion, ethnic origin, age, disability or sexual orientation, as is stated in our hiring policy. Our hiring procedures and policies are clearly communicated in our internal Human Resources Recruitment & Selection document, which acts as a guide for our HR Team as they look to promote, hire, and expand our Vaculug family.
Since 2018, our workforce has become much more diverse as we have hired and welcomed more women and more people from diverse backgrounds to join our company.
Today, 10% of our workforce is represented by women and ethnic minorities.
continuous education
Committed to fostering a positive work environment and team, we aim to provide all employees with the opportunity to develop long-term careers and professional training appropriate to their abilities and ambitions.
All our production manufacturing training takes place in our on-site training facility, where all employees go through comprehensive internal training by Vaculug team of experts. In 2021, we conducted 3 separate training sessions with 24 employees, with a focus on training and development for specific manufacturing functions and skills. Additionally, we send employees for external professional and focused training at industry institutes.
Another employee development initiative we have created at Vaculug is Vaculug University, a series of masterclass-type online sessions with global business leaders including the likes of Bill Gates, Tom Tugendhat, Chris Wigley, Mark Carney & Shai Weiss.
The sessions were well received and appreciated by Vaculug employees.
