How we work

Because people are our greatest asset, we work hard to attract and develop a highly skilled, diverse, and motivated workforce around the world.

Through best-in-class safety programs and performance, we keep employees physically safe, and through a focus on work-life balance and mental health, we keep employees psychologically safe.

Targeted programs help us to develop a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment, benefitting our business by making employees feel safe to speak up, representing multiple perspectives and making our business adaptable to a fast-moving environment.

Surveys consistently show that our employees are proud of working at Yara, that they are engaged, and that they would recommend Yara as an employer. We rely on their motivation to successfully drive innovation, productivity, and continuous improvement. Their continued engagement is critical as we set out to build a culture of entrepreneurship and agility.

In addition to developing our employees to help the company deliver on its strategy, we work to improve the communities where we operate. Yara has made a commitment to respecting internationally recognized human and labor rights throughout our own operations, as well as in our supply chain – not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it makes business sense. Respecting human rights is fundamental to sound risk management and Yara’s value creation.
