WE (the PTCG manifesto)
As an integrated tech company, PTCG designs, build, deliver and distributes technologies that help upgrade daily life. Because our projects are in the public interest, we at PTCG consider that we have a duty to reach out to our public and private sector partners and to engage in dialogue with them and are publishing a new Manifesto with commitments meeting that objective.
Design, build, deliver, Manage
Our products and services serve the public and the common good. We therefore strive to ensure that all stakeholders – including partners, customers, suppliers, elected officials, local residents and civil society derive the most from our products and services.
Ethical behaviour is key to our contracts and our customer relations. All our subsidiaries apply our Code of Ethics and Conduct. We commit to ensuring total transparency in our own practices and in those of our subcontractors.
We Engage in Civic Projects
Our business activity is rooted in local service. We therefore support the engagement of our employees and subsidiaries in sponsoring civic projects and combating social exclusion. We commit to supporting the civic engagement of our employees.
We Foster Equality & Diversity
Our culture is based on bringing together people of different backgrounds and experience. We fight all forms of discrimination in hiring, in workplace relations and in the career paths of our employees. We train our managers in this requirement and impress it on our suppliers and subcontractors. We, commit to diversifying our supervisory staff to include more women and people of diverse origins.
We Promote Sustainable Careers
We take a long-term approach to relations with our employees. We practice responsible flexibility to foster balanced career and personal development for our employees. We, commit to proposing training and job mobility opportunities for all our employees in order to promote sustainable employability
We Share the benefits of our performance
Our employees together represent PTCG’s biggest shareholder block. We strive to share the benefits of our growth with our employees around the world through employee shareholding and appropriate profit-sharing schemes. We commit to ensuring that every PTCG employee is given an opportunity, wherever possible, to share in our economic success
We commit to calling on all PTCG managers to apply these commitments and make them a focus of management-employee dialogue at every level. The Group will bring in an outside independent organisation to verify compliance with this Manifesto and measure its impact. To ensure full transparency, it will publish the results regularly.
