Nagra certified by the expert body ‘UND’ as an employer who balances work and family life
In summer 2014, Nagra decided to subject its human resources policy and performance to a review by the UND body in terms of the balance achieved between work and family life and gender equality.
The process for certification involved:
- An initial analysis of the situation by UND
- The formulation and approval of an action plan
- Evaluation of the 68 UND quality criteria
- Approval of future-oriented measures
- Granting of the certification «Family & Work»
The process from the recording of the current status to certification took around one and a half years. Employees at all levels were involved and were able to bring their appraisals and suggestions for improvement into the process. With the award, Nagra now belongs to a group of around 38 institutions and companies that have this certification in Switzerland.
The certification is valid for three years and can be renewed for a further three years following an audit. Working together with the UND competence centre, Nagra has drawn up an action plan that will maintain and develop its position as a family-friendly and progressive employer in the coming years.
