People & Culture

At Sidel we are deeply committed to making our Group a great place to work by embracing diversity and empowering our team to meet their goals and ours.

Diversity at all levels

Sidel is a Group that operates worldwide and is proud to embrace all forms of diversity at all levels. As our recruitment policy states: “Sidel Group companies are expected to offer equal opportunities to all employees and job candidates with no discrimination on the grounds of religion, social standing, race or ethnic origin, nationality, gender, age, disability, health, marital status, political or philosophical opinions, trade-union membership, sexual orientation or other characteristics protected by law.”

Our proactive approach to can be seen in concrete statistics:

  • In mid-2020 the overall female population of the Group was 18%.
  • In 2021:
    • 25% of new hires in the Graduate Talent Program must be women.
    • 30% of promotions our Accelerated Leadership Development Program must be women.

This progress is evident in the population of people reporting to the Global Leadership Team (GLT-1):

  • +10% (per year) increase geographical diversity in GLT-1
  • 33% successors to GLT-1 from Asia and Americas

Training and personal growth

Sidel is committed to developing the skills and knowhow of everyone in its team. In 2020 we also increased the number of training courses offered remotely to ensure our learning opportunities are available worldwide.

We offer numerous leadership programs, too, and in 2020, as face to face events were impossible, we redesigned our “Managing Essentials” and “Incubator: Accelerated Talent Development” programs in a webinar + e-learning format to ensure they were equally available right across our organisation.

Annual awards and recognition programs

At Sidel we are always quick to recognise achievement, especially with employees. That is why we have a series of award programs, including our:

  • "Excellence Awards" for individuals and teams who have excelled in our core values.
  • "Factory of the Year Award” for the plant that has achieved our values the most worldwide.
  • "One Step Ahead Award" for Sidel innovators.
  • HSE "Safe at Work" for employees who go beyond their duty to ensure safety

Real job fulfilment

For all these reasons, as well as a host of other initiatives, like the way we protected our employees during the Covid-19 pandemic, our whistle blowing policy on harassment and discrimination, and our Return to Work survey regarding smart working, anyone who becomes part of the Sidel can embrace a career that is challenging, satisfying and full of opportunities.
