Socapalm’s commitment to social development is demonstrated by the way in which its activities are executed. Relations with stakeholders, health, social security and employee well-being are our leitmotif.

Socapalm pays particular attention to respecting the laws and legislation in force, as well as respecting human rights.

Occupational health and safety has always been the object of concerted efforts, piloted by our doctors, when it comes to prevention and sensitization in the Socapalm and surrounding villages, or to peer health educators in special HIV/AIDS programs.

All Socapalm sites have occupational health services where the personnel and their families receive free medical care. At the same time, Socapalm provides 80% insurance coverage for all employees and their families in case of medical evacuation and hospitalization.

General Management highly encourages on-going, high quality social dialogue within the different sites.

To ensure non-discrimination in recruitment, vacancies are published and priority is given in case of equal qualifications, to in-house expertise and local employment. Moreover, directions are provided to ensure that recruitment takes place via a unique entrance point on the website “socapalm@socapalm.org“.

Employee performance evaluations are regularly organized, leading to career development, and targeted training programs.

Our charter of ethics (code of ethics), which has existed for almost ten years and was limited to management, was reviewed in 2017. It will be extended to all hierarchy levels and the supply chain.

Socapalm guarantees freedom of association and collective bargaining.
