WE ARE WORKING ON GOOD WORKING CONDITIONS
We contribute to sustainable economic growth by actively pursuing fair and good working conditions throughout the entire chain and supporting local initiatives.
Dignified working conditions and sustainable economic growth
At Broekhof, we value the employees who work on our products throughout the whole production chain. We ensure they are treated fairly, with dignity and with respect. That is why we devote attention to health and safety and good business ethics. To guarantee that, Broekhof is amfori BSCI, Sedex, ISO 26000 and MVO Nederland-accredited.
Broekhof has a team of quality inspectors. This team operates across the whole of China and Vietnam and can conduct inspections at any production location within forty-eight hours.
This team's activities consist of:
- Inspection before shipping
- Monitoring the production process
- Inspecting container shipments
- If there are any doubts about the fairness of the working conditions, despite our participation in BSCI Amfori, our quality assurance team can get involved to present possible solutions.
Our PEOPLE Cases:
Support of the Jarige Job Foundation
We also strive to make a valuable contribution on a local scale. Koninklijke Paardekooper Group is a sponsor of the Jarige Job Foundation. Every year, there are children in the Netherlands who are unable to celebrate their birthday because there is no money to do so. The Jarige Job Foundation helps these children by offering them a birthday box. This box contains everything they need to celebrate their birthday properly - at home and at school! Every year, more than 80,000 children get to celebrate their birthday with the help of the Jarige Job Foundation. We support this foundation by supplying packaging materials. Our employees also visited the foundation to help pack up the birthday boxes.
At the end of the year, we give our employees the opportunity to suggest a charity that inspires them and whose work ties into our ambition of having a positive impact on people and the environment.
