A growing number of companies are choosing to sign the Charter on Business and Human Rights. Among them is Violeta, one of the leading brands in premium hygiene products in BiH and the region.
The Charter consists of 15 articles concerning the prevention of human rights violations, involving stakeholders to ensure their voices and needs are heard, expressing commitment to equality, positive work environment, no forced labor or involvement in human trafficking, the right to a communication system that offers all employees confidentiality when reporting.
Violeta had this to say about the Charter:
As a socially responsible company, Violeta decided to sign the Charter on Business and Human Rights. In our company, people always come first, whether it’s our employees or our consumers.
Our company’s business policy is based on protecting and respecting our employee’s human rights, and we try to be a positive influence in this regard on our partners and suppliers.
We firmly believe in providing a healthy work environment for our employees. Responsibility and respect are the key to success. Happy employees are more productive and they drive the company’s success. This should be the guiding principle behind every company’s philosophy. We encourage all domestic companies to join us in espousing the principles and values stated in the Charter.
The Charter on Business and Human Rights was created through the project “Improving Human Rights Corporate Accountability in the BiH Business Sector” implemented by the Institute for Youth Development KULT in cooperation with the Association of Employers of FBiH, with the financial support of the European Union.
