We want to be a responsible and trustworthy employer for our employees. We believe that the talent development of our staff, focus in working safety, ensuring employee satisfaction, and support of employee wellbeing create the basis for sustainability and providing the best service for our customers. We want to also support students in the beginning phases of their careers, offering internship and thesis opportunities. Our goal is to have one trainee or intern per every ten new hire.
The cornerstone for our knowledgeable staff is providing a thorough onboarding. Our managers plan for the onboarding of new employees already in the recruitment phase, according to our onboarding model. The success of onboarding is monitored through consistent feedback discussions.
We provide versatile training to support personal and professional growth. Trainings include internships, various certifications, product training, and language training. One of the topics of discussion in yearly one-on-one meetings with supervisors, the employee and supervisor think about development and training needs and desires, with HR supporting these decisions when needed. Skill development can also come in the form of learning at work, mentoring a new employee, or voluntary self-education.
Development of working safety
Our goal is that every Lumon employee comes to work healthy, and can return home feeling the same way. We take preventative measures in safety by conducting safety walks on work sites and production facilities, by keeping safety on the agenda of team meetings, and by learning from past incidents. Safety observations are a part of our everyday responsibility, as well as the reporting of close-call situations. The safety committee consider the development of preventative measures on a monthly basis, and the results have for example included a change in the type of safety glasses used. The equal treatment of employees and well as ensuring a healthy work environment are a part of the safety efforts at Lumon.
What are we doing to ensure safety remains a top priority?
- Health and safety training as a part of onboarding processes
- Safety observation rounds conducted on a regular basis
- Monitoring of accidents on a country-basis and global basis
- Corrective measures meetings after the occurrence of an incident
Safety work belongs to everyone
Safety work is based on safe working conditions and the support of safe working practices, as well as increasing awareness regarding safety matters. Prevention is the most successful when safety and health are taken into account well in advance. Successful safety work requires knowledge, skill, desire and thought, as well as planning, goals, monitoring and continuous improvements regarding safety. Lumon Group’s principles of safety are that each and every person understands his or her own safety responsibilities. The responsibility for ensuring the safety of daily work is divided between management, supervisors, workers, safety officers, and the occupational health and safety organization.
We understand that safety is about caring for ourselves and for others.
