The most important resource of the company are our employees. Therefore, we strive to offer them a work environment in which each employee will be themselves. A work environment where everyone will have equal opportunities, and family and career are not in opposition. By promoting diversity and equality, the company takes important steps and fosters a culture in which everyone is respected.
Gender equality continues to be an important issue in our society. At A1 Telekom Austria Group, we not only want to draw attention to this topic, but also want to actively address it. For this reason, a plan for the advancement of women has been developed in Austria in order to define measures for equal opportunities. The purpose of these measures is to promote the opportunities for professional development of women and to improve the compatibility of work and family life. In addition, a women's network "Women matter" has been created. On this platform, women can exchange ideas and knowledge and support each other.
In February 2017, A1 Makedonija started with the implementation of the MAMFORCE method, an innovative method of assessment and business certification that unites corporate responsibility towards family and gender equality. The MAMFORCE method covers six main areas, which cover the most important policies and measures, and relate to communication with colleagues, work organization, flexibility, employee services, and the development of talent handling and management.
In 2019, as part of the awards for businesses and individuals from the Citizens' Association "CONNECT", the company received the award for achieved "Sustainable Development Goals 2019" for the project "MAMFORCE". This recognition confirmed the long-term contribution of A1 Makedonija, but also the commitment of all employees in achieving global goals for sustainable development, such as accessible and quality education for all, gender equality and care for the environment.
