After measuring and setting targets, Swissport took action to implement a Code of Conduct, fight corruption, provide equal opportunities for its employees, ensure fair and equal pay, share information with Swissport employees, recognizing the legitimate role of responsible trade unions and employee representatives and, also, support employees through training and development programmes.
