F
or MYTILINEOS Group, the pro-
motion of dialogue and collabo-
ration with its people on issues of
common interest is a daily concern. Our
employees and their representatives are
encouraged to express their opinion on
business, social and environmental is-
sues through appropriate constructive
channels such as, for example, their par-
ticipation in the consultations with
our Stakeholders, in line with our com-
mitment to open and constructive
communication that promotes the
public good as well as mutual interests,
as well as their participation in the reg-
ular and ad hoc meetings between the
Management and their collective
Unions, in the annual employee per-
formance review procedures, etc. Ad-
ditionally, meetings with employees are
held in all our subsidiaries to provide
them with information on important
corporate matters and on potential op-
erational changes. With respect to the
latter, all Group employees affected by
such changes are informed of them
within the time limits prescribed by the
applicable laws, which in several cases
exceed the statutory ones. Finally, in all
geographical locations of its operations
abroad, our subsidiary METKA S.A.
complies with the applicable national
or regional laws and adheres to em-
ployment and labour practice standards,
which are the same as those that ap-
ply in Greece.
