Diversity and Inclusion
As of December 31, 2022, we employed more than 2,100 individuals and are an equal opportunity employer. We believe that eliminating barriers to employment results in a more plentiful recruiting pool, diverse perspectives to problem-solving, and stronger teams. We maintain a positive work environment by striving to create a strong culture of diversity and inclusion, supported by both our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and our employment practices.
We have policies in place that reinforce our commitment to diversity and inclusion within the workplace. Our employee handbook includes equal employment opportunity commitments and nondiscrimination and anti-harassment disclosures, which communicate our expectations with respect to maintaining a professional workplace free of harassment. We prohibit discrimination or harassment against any employee or applicant on the basis of sex, race, ethnicity, or any other protected categories. We are committed to a harassment-free workplace, which is further supported through training that covers multiple topics including unconscious bias.
We contract with a third-party provider to advertise our open positions to enhance recruitment of diverse candidates including veterans, people with disabilities, minorities, and women. Diversity data, as self-reported by employees, for the past three years is presented below (data is current as of December 31 of each year).
Women and Minorities in Our Workforce
1 As defined by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
2 As ethnic declaration is voluntary, ethnicity declaration rate is not 100% and all calculations are based on an employee declaration rate of 97% as of December 2021. The 3% of our workforce who have not provided data or have chosen not to declare their ethnicity were not included in our calculations.
