The Bank endorses and supports internationally recognised principles
under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which promotes
global respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for
all, without distinction of race, color, gender, language, religion,
opinion, descent, or national or ethnic origin.
As businesses, we need to demonstrate that we are aware
of human rights. Clearly, human rights are a global issue. We
should not presuppose that we have no impacts just because
we operate in an area where human rights are not part of the
daily lingo. Interestingly, they could and should become part of
our language again.
The concept of “due diligence” was proposed and found to be
a useful starting point for companies as they seek to integrate
respect for human rights into their practices.
NEWLY HIRED EMPLOYEES ATTENDED
A PRESENTATION ON HUMAN RIGHTS,
HOURS OF COVERAGE OF HUMAN RIGHTS
TOPICS INCLUDING SPECIAL TRAINING ON
DECENT WORK FOR DOMESTIC WORKERS
In due diligence on this topic, and by participating in the ILO’s
recent project on “Decent Work for Domestic Workers”, Bank Audi
voluntarily collaborated to raise awareness among its employees
on the rights of domestic workers with the aim to ensure decent
working conditions, as well as provide important insights on the
perspectives of employers with the goal of continuous improvement
in the living and working conditions of this most vulnerable group.
Similarly, with the right to privacy, any company should know that
they have potential adverse impacts on this human right, whether
it is handling data, registering or using information on customers.
