Diversity and Inclusion
The Board is committed to providing equal employment opportunities for all employees and applicants for employment. Diversity is embraced at G&H. We seek to recruit, hire, develop and retain the best talent.
Our employees have diverse backgrounds, skills, and ideas that collectively contribute to our success. The Company operates to national standards of diversity in employment, including an Affirmative Action Program (AAP) in the United States, which is designed to attract, retain and develop a diverse pool of talent.
As part of our talent and succession planning process, the Board and Executive management team monitor the representation of women and ethnic minorities at different levels and across different functions within our “talent pools”. In support of this objective, recruitment partners have now been instructed to include female candidates in all shortlist submissions. This will improve the representation of women at all levels, notably in leadership positions that (excluding the Directors) are currently 90% male (88% including the Directors).
In recognition of International Women in Engineering Day in June 2021, G&H hosted a virtual round table with women in engineering and related disciplines from across the Group. They spoke openly and engagingly about the challenges they have faced and how they have overcome them, the support they have found both at G&H and elsewhere in their lives, the obstacles remaining in the wider industry, and the future they believe women engineers – and the girls aspiring to become them – have a right to attain. As a result of this event, an internal support network has been created that meets regularly.
