We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. Where there is a deep sense of pride, passion and belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language or country. And where all employees feel valued, heard and positioned to do their best work every day.
We know that our business ambitions are achievable only if we rely on the unique ideas, perspectives and backgrounds of our talented people around the world – and foster an environment where that diversity can thrive. Our values support our commitment and articulate the expectations we have for each other in a complex, ever-changing world.
"Diversity and inclusion are essential for achieving our vision, fulfilling our purpose and being a sustainable company where the most talented people can thrive. A culture that doesn’t embrace people who look, think and act differently will simply not get to the best solution or results."
Jim Loree, President & CEO
Our leadership team is committed to setting the right example. President and CEO Jim Loree was among a group of prominent CEOs to sign on to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, and nearly 400 of our top leaders joined him in committing to take action “to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.”
We are also part of the Business Roundtable Diversity & Inclusion Index, where the largest U.S.-based employers are committing to building a more inclusive environment, where everyone is valued and all ideas are heard.
We take pride in the progress we’ve made with the knowledge that we still have ambitious work ahead.
"Embracing the diverse insights from cultures around the world allows us to innovate with purpose, move with agility and perform beyond expectations. There is so much power to being open to the perspectives of others."
Pradheepa Raman, Chief Talent Innovation Officer
