Sauber Group is for everyone

Sauber Engineering – Certified to ISO 9001

ISO 9001 sets out the criteria for a quality management system. This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001 helps ensure that Sauber Engineering customers get consistent, good-quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.

Committed to Diversity & Inclusion

The Sauber Group is at the forefront of inclusivity – not just by hiring personnel based on their talent, without discrimination, but also by promoting skills in a wide range of individuals, regardless of their background and origin.

Our international workforce features employees from all continents, attracted to our base in Switzerland by the opportunity to work in a competitive environment at the forefront of innovation. This multi-lingual, multi-cultural group is, by virtue of its composition, one that fosters inclusivity and the sharing of knowledge for the betterment of the company and the community we work in.

Similarly, our commitment to promoting talent has seen a growing number of women join the team and progress to key positions – heading departments and leading teams both trackside and back at HQ.

We are supportive of our employees’ activities and participation in advocacy groups: since 2020, we have supported and encouraged our colleague, Krystina Emmanouilides, in her role as ambassador for Racing Pride, a movement designed to positively promote LGBTQ+ inclusivity in motorsport.

As a company, Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN and the Sauber Group have, in May 2021, received the “We Pay Fair” certificate by the Competence Centre for Diversity & Inclusion of the University of St. Gallen, following an in-depth analysis of the salary gap between men and women and between employees of different national origin. We continue to look at ways to improve the inclusivity of our team and we are committed to making our company a safe, equitable place of work for all employees, irrespective of any individual circumstances.

Measured for accountability

What gets measured, gets done – so goes the saying. In 2021, the Sauber Group is participating in the St Gallen Diversity Benchmarking. This project analyses the company’s anonymised personnel data along the HR lifecycle and compares its results with companies within the same industry or across different industries. Companies receive a report that compares all participating companies as well as an individual management summary that highlights some of the key findings in comparison to the industry average.

The St Gallen Diversity Benchmarking not only provides facts, but also specific fields of action and recommendations for all important HR processes – from recruitment to talent management to retention. Since the St Gallen Diversity Benchmarking is conducted regularly, companies can track their progress over time, allowing them to measure progress and the impact of their actions. When a company participates for two times or more, there is also the option to ask for a multi-year comparison, which shows the development of the company’s HR data across several years.

By participating in the St Gallen Diversity Benchmarking you receive the label “St Gallen Diversity Benchmarking – We participate” from the University of St Gallen.
