The provision of an inclusive and collegial working environment is fundamental to our vision and a key ingredient to our business success. When every employee feels valued for their contribution and knows they can progress on the basis of merit and skill, we are able to leverage the full potential of our workforce.
Diversity is not just about valuing differences based on visible characteristics. Factors such as communication style, career path, life experience, educational background and parental status influence personal perspectives and make our people react and think differently, approach challenges and solve problems differently, make suggestions and decisions differently, and see different opportunities.
To us, diversity is fundamentally about diversity of thought and we believe that superior business performance requires tapping into these unique perspectives.
