Safe and
Meaningful jobs

The people in Mowi are critical to our success. Having the right people on board, with the right skills, mindset and competences across our business is a key enabler for continuous growth and development.

Our success depends on our people.

Our goal is to attract and retain talent from current and future generations, driven by our commitment to providing healthy, delicious, and sustainable food to a growing population. All employees in Mowi have an impact on the Blue Revolution, as we aim to offer secure, meaningful, and appealing career opportunities.

We foster an inclusive work environment that values every individual’s input and encourages collaboration across functions and locations.

Our ongoing efforts centre on building an engaged, diverse workforce dedicated to long-term success within the company.

Our efforts

Human rights

We believe that businesses can only flourish in societies where human rights are protected and respected. We aim to contribute to positive human rights impacts in the company, in our supply chain, with our stakeholders and in the world. This is held in close collaboration with our vision Leading the Blue Revolution, our Sustainability plan, our code of conduct and the business strategy.

Mowi’s commitment on human rights is based upon internationally recognized human rights principles, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Global Compact, The United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the International Labor Organization’s Core Conventions.

Fair employment

We are committed to fair working conditions and employment practices. Our commitment is expressed in our Code of Conduct, in our global policies such as human rights and diversity & inclusion, in our ONE Mowi operational procedures, and in our values and leadership principles that guide us in our work every day.

Fair compensation

We continue to prioritise fair and transparent compensation. Our aim is to offer competitive compensation yet aligned with the local market and industry. No employee is paid less than the official national living wage indicated for the relevant location. We utilise a global job architecture system to ensure transparent processes with objective criteria for compensation and benefits determination. We also map gender pay on a regular basis. Our analysis overall shows no significant gender pay difference.

Freedom of association

Mowi respects, recognises, and support our employees’ freedom of association and the right to engage in collective bargaining. Employees are free from reprisals due to union membership or engagement. Mowi is committed to the constructive dialogue and cooperation with labour unions and employee representatives.

Employee Health and Safety

Our goal is zero workplace injuries. Health and safety are foundational in everything we do, and we will never compromise on safety for any other business priority. Our long-term goal is to develop a strong safety culture. This is done through systematic and structured safety programs and developing a high awareness and safety mindset.

Our safety program BrainSafe

Our global safety program, BrainSafe, is a behaviour-based safety process designed to empower employees, hired staff and contractors to take control of their own safety and raise safety awareness. Our aim is that safety is the top priority of all our employees, to ensure we all get to go home safely at the end of the day.

Mowi operates under a systematic approach to hazard and risk management, including hazard identification, analysis of the potential risk, and mitigation strategies under the hierarchy of controls starting with elimination, substitution, engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment (PPE).

Preventive measures are taken where possible to counteract these risks, in line with our safety principles and with local laws and regulations on preventive work in the health and safety area.

In addition, all Business Units in Mowi are required to have, and have established safety committees. The committees have participation from both management and employees, as well as from labour unions where they have representation. All Business Units have dedicated safety representatives, who have the safety responsibility for all locations and sites in the business unit’s operation.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our commitments to people are aligned with our Sustainability Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Read more on this topic on our Sustainability pages.
