ABB helps each employee build a rewarding career by making all opportunities open to everyone through its “Open Job Market” policy where every year more than 10,000 open positions are being published internally and externally.
ABB has a Global Grading System with support which measures the comparative worth of all openings in the organization. This means that jobs are reviewed in a fair and consistent way with similar jobs being compared to each other across countries, and in many cases across Divisions. The Global Grading System and the resulting grade evaluation is a foundation for compensation decisions involving base pay, short term incentives, long term incentives and other benefits.
ABB has flexible work options depending on job compatibility without compromising customer service or impacting colleagues: Common Flexible Work Practices (FWP) include Flextime, Compressed Work Week, Remote Work, Telecommuting, Part Time, and Job Share. Global Flexible Work Practices Guidelines detail standards and processes which will apply across ABB. However, many countries will go beyond these standards where local legislation allows.
As part of its efforts to foster a more diverse and inclusive culture, ABB has launched a gender-neutral global parental leave program granting 12 weeks of paid leave for primary caregivers and 4 weeks for secondary caregivers across the global organization. Every ABB employee worldwide under the program who is having a child, whose partner is having a child, or who adopts a child or becomes a parent through surrogacy, is entitled to paid parental leave.
