With a presence in Mexico since 1993, Vitesco Technologies has been at the forefront of innovation to contribute to development, support the fight against climate change and prioritize social inclusion.
In this regard, the prestigious company obtained the Mexican standard certification NMX-R-025-SCFI-2015 for Labor Equality between Women and Men granted by the National Institute for Women, the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare, and the National Council to Prevent Discrimination.
According to the Mexican government, this certification focuses on “recognizing workplaces that have practices in terms of labor equality and non-discrimination, to favor the integral development of workers” and for its issuance a process must be carried out, which includes self-evaluations, audits, and the implementation of processes.
