Diversity and Inclusion
Focused recruiting and learning initiatives ensure that our global workforce accurately understands and represents the markets where we operate.
We work every day to foster an inclusive and culturally competent workplace that embraces all our differences as opportunities to expand global growth, build competitive advantage and drive collaboration. We've achieved these objectives by focusing on three primary areas:
As the company's international business expands, we rely on a diverse workforce to help us collaborate on innovative solutions that meet the needs of our customers. As we engage with international customers, we strive to understand what diversity means within international cultures and how we can most effectively harness and assimilate diverse ways of thinking.
