- For more than a century today, we express our gratitude and respect to women who throughout history have pushed the boundaries of freedom with their courage and perseverance, fought for equality and thus corrected the injustice and discrimination to which women were exposed.
Thanks to their struggle, today we can say that we are a society in which no form of discrimination is tolerated and in which everyone has equal rights regardless of gender.
The principles of ethical conduct, which in particular exclude discrimination on any grounds and in any form, are incorporated in the basic documents of our company, such as the Code of Ethics and the Collective Agreement.
Due to the nature of the services we provide, women in Zagreb Holding are in the minority - they make up only a quarter of employees.
