Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2018
INNOVATING THROUGH DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION (D&I) (405-1)
To continue fostering an inclusive company culture that empowers our diverse workforce, we maintain a variety of diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives, including: >> Enforcing diverse hiring practices: All our recruitment staff are trained in diverse hiring practices, and our standards require that all hiring for leadership roles must include at least two diverse candidates. >> Maintaining a D&I intranet site: Accessible to all colleagues, this internal site is a hub for information about our D&I philosophy, leadership commitment, trainings, activities and updates. >> Engaging our workforce through Employee Resource Groups (ERGs): Our ERGs offer an internal network for our employees to meet, engage with and learn from people of different cultures, genders, sexual orientations and other common backgrounds. >> Manager Development Program: Our “Building a Respectful & Inclusive Workplace” training is offered to all managers in the Americas to increase awareness, personal accountability and elimination of unconscious bias. >> Measuring employee engagement: We regularly conduct surveys to gauge employee satisfaction and engagement. >> Observing diversity days and heritage months: Colleagues around the world celebrate occasions such as Black History Month, International Women’s Day, Pride Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Veterans Day and more through ERG participation and local offices events.
In 2018, to reinforce our commitment to creating a safe, inclusive work environment, we developed the Global Anti- Harassment and Anti-Discrimination Policy.
“A focus on diversity and inclusion isn’t just the right thing to do—it’s the right thing to do for our business. Amore diverse workforce reflects our clients, creates more opportunities for innovation, and helps us to better understand markets on local and global levels.” Janice O’Neill Global Head of Talent Management and Diversity
