Diversity & Inclusion Program
In working with people who are different, it must be realized that how employees interact will affect the ability to be competitive and to deliver the best products and services. Valuing and respecting each individual creates an environment where everyone can do their best work.
The Union and the Company define workplace diversity in the following manner:
Diversity is the mosaic of people who bring a variety
of backgrounds, styles, perspectives, values, and
beliefs as assets to our organization.
A mosaic is made up of a combination of individual pieces. These pieces, when put together, make up a whole, but retain their individual qualities.
If an employee’s input is discounted because he or she is different, the organization may be missing valuable opportunities to advance. A more diverse workforce increases creativity and innovation, and, ultimately, productivity and profits.
