Human Rights 2006/2007
Businesses are asked to support and respect the protection of international human rights within their sphere of influence; and
Make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.
DTT and its member firms recognize that they have a responsibility to uphold human rights both in the workplace and more broadly within their spheres of influence. Member firms seek to comply not only with the letter but also with the spirit of the law wherever they operate and have programs in place that support human rights in their interaction with key stakeholders. In the workplace, human rights take the form of non-discrimination and diversity in personnel practices, professional development that aids employability, and work-life balance programs that support a healthy balance between professional and private life. Recruiting and retaining activities reflect a desire to hire professionals who share DTT's and its member firms’ values and commitment to responsible business. In addition, member firms protect human rights in the community through contributions to poverty alleviation and increasing levels of education. DTT member firm professionals also contribute to the public debate on issues related to human rights.
