Jotun Ethiopia


Why Work For Us?

Jotun continuously works towards good working and development conditions for our employees.

Jotun is known for treating its employees well.
Not only are we committed to comply with the UN Human Rights and the ILO convention. We have a firm and common remuneration structure and we carry out Human Resources reviews to make sure that corporate policies and sound practices are followed in each company.

Without diversity in gender, culture, religion, and age, Jotun would never have been as robust as it is
Over the years, a special focus has been on bringing different people together in organizations and in networks. Bringing people across borders has been the key to securing mutual respect across borders and within the different entities. Most employees of Jotun are exposed to colleagues from other countries and with different cultural backgrounds on a daily basis, based on our formal and informal structure. 

The internationalization of employees is done in different ways
Jotun has a long tradition of sending people on international assignments. This is seen as a long-term investment, although it requires more resources than hiring local employees. Informal networks are developed which gather people from different nationalities and business divisions. Furthermore, there are a number of formal regional and functional networks with regular meetings. These are all instruments that enable increased knowledge-sharing and social capital within the company.

Jotun is a workplace in which discrimination because of gender, religion, or reduced operability is not acceptable
The company cooperates with institutions to facilitate job training for people who for different reasons fall outside normal working life. Climate surveys are also held in order to detect harassment of any kind. In addition, adjustments of working conditions and tasks are carried out on a continuous basis to make sure that special, individual needs are met.

The development of employees is of high importance
Jotun has extensive development programs (Jotun Academies) at all levels to make sure that people are trained to do their job and to develop people at all levels.

Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) at the workplace
Jotun takes HSE seriously and makes sure that training programs in local languages take place. Each site has its own HSE coordinator that works closely with Group HSE with corrective and preventive actions. Group HSE undertakes regular HSE audits, which in turn is reported to Group Management and the Board of Directors to ensure commitment from the very top of the organization.
