At JHY, we recognize that our employees are the key to our success and nothing can be achieved without their engagement. This document encompasses the guidelines which constitute a solid basis for effective Human Resources Management throughout the JHY Group around the world. It explains to all JHY employees the vision and mission of the Human Resources function and illustrates every aspect of the JHY employee lifecycle. The JHY Management and Leadership Principles inspire all the JHY employees in their actions and in their dealings with others. The Corporate Business Principles refer to all the basic principles which JHY endorses and subscribes to on a worldwide basis. Both these documents are the pillars on which the present policy has been built. The implementation of this policy will be inspired by sound judgement, compliance with local market laws and common sense, taking into account the specific context. Its spirit should be respected under all circumstances and could be summarised in one sentence: At JHY we put people at the centre of everything we do.
