Recently, Avery Dennison inadvertently published a recruitment advertisement in Singapore, which stated that we were looking for candidates “within 40 years of age“ and with “Mandarin proficiency is preferred”. As soon as we became aware of this error we promptly removed the post and we sincerely apologise for any offence that this advertisement may have caused.
Avery Dennison is a global corporation, with operations in more than 50 countries. We pride ourselves in being an equal opportunity employer that promotes and exhibits a diverse and inclusive environment. The information in the job advertisement did not reflect our core values.
We would also like to affirm our commitment to fair employment practices and pledge our continued commitment to following the Tripartite Guidelines on Fair Employment Practices in Singapore.
We have initiated a course of corrective action to ensure that no such incident is ever repeated.
