Elements of the ‘Breathe Freely’ programme regionally include providing employees with healthy food options, access to medical advice and tips on how to stay safe and secure when travelling, among other benefits.
The company has also established a Women’s Success Network for the Middle East region. As part of the company’s global Inclusion Network and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), this newly established regional chapter will become a resource for both women and men at Air Products to help women reach their full potential by supporting their development and championing an inclusive workplace.
