We expect a lot from our employees, and we rely on them to protect and grow our business. Our employees trust us to properly recognize their diverse talents. We are committed to honoring that trust. Our philosophy on diversity is a practical one. It simply makes good business sense to leverage the diverse skills and talents of our entire global workforce regardless of gender, age, race, origin, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, sexual orientation and religious beliefs.
We believe that we should hire, develop, reward, promote and retain our people strictly on the basis of their talent and commitment as well as the results they achieve. We will never recruit or promote anyone based on anything other than merit, competence and potential. Our approach to diversity is underpinned by practical objectives to ensure that all of our employees have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their talent, commitment and results.
