Individual Responsibility

Internal Public

A sustainable future depends on joint efforts.

We strongly believe that sustainable development is something that starts out inside the company. Personal commitment will ensure that a sustainable future can be built up as people join their individual efforts and act as good citizens.

In this context, HR (Human Resources) plays an important role not only by spreading the company’s concepts and culture, but also by reflecting them and making them widely known.

We are aware that a sustainable company appeals to talented people. People who are truly concerned about social, environmental, economic, and individual responsibility are eager to work for a company that makes sense to them and provides them with room to develop their potential skills and thus achieve their goals. It is essential to share values with a view to success.

We wish to live in a world where we can act as good citizens and count on social inclusion, economic transparency, diversity, and respect for the environment in the daily life of both people and corporations. Personal commitment is a key tool to build up such a world. HR special mission is to encourage engagement and cause all necessary changes to be made.

Philips mission is to improve people’s life. We believe that this should start out inside the company itself. Fully satisfied and engaged employees will then multiply and reproduce sustainable development practices, a basic concept in our business strategies.
