Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion are the backbone of our workforce, and essential to our success. We employ people from different cultures from around the world and we’re constantly working to make sure our workplace is reflective of our diverse group of employees and customers. In our continued commitment to be an inclusive organization, we embrace, leverage and respect the diversity of our workforce, our clientele and the communities in which we live, work and serve.
We want people with different abilities, backgrounds, experiences and orientations to help make us successful. We want to encourage a culture that appreciates people’s differences and their similarities.
Our diversity and inclusion programs and initiatives are focused around three areas:
Our goal is to hire, retain and develop people with different backgrounds that reflect the communities that we serve.
We strive to create a workplace culture that values and leverages our many differences and drives innovation through inclusion.
We partner with diverse suppliers and community organizations, so we can deliver culturally relevant products and services.
