What we need to know

  • All employees deserve a workplace environment, independent of work location, that is free from harassment, intimidation, discrimination or threats of violence for any reason, including actions based on gender, sexual orientation or identity, race, ethnicity, disability, national origin, religious or cultural beliefs or citizenship
  • We view employee diversity as a competitive advantage, as it broadens our perspective and allows us to better understand our customers’ needs and wants
  • Telenor does its utmost to actively promote equality in all employment practices
  • We foster a working environment where people are treated honestly and professionally and are valued for their unique ideas and differences

What is expected of all of us

  • We show respect for our co-workers and treat them as we ourselves would like to be treated
  • We do not retaliate against any employee, business partner or customer for raising a good faith concern
  • We do not engage in conversations or send communications of any kind that contain offensive name-calling, jokes, slurs, stereotyping, blackmailing or threats, nor do we display or share offensive pictures, cartoons, drawings or gestures

  • We confront any incidents of harassment or inappropriate behaviour and proactively protect our work environment
  • We do not use alcohol or illegal drugs in the workplace, or abuse prescription medication, and we never purchase sexual services on business trips or other assignments
