Global Inclusion and Diversity

Here, you’ll find that inclusion and diversity are strategic imperatives. As a global company, we value the qualities — experiences, interests and capabilities — that make our more than 30,000 employees unique. With Global Inclusion, we work to make you feel engaged and valued by recognizing and applying your unique talents.

Below are just a few of the key programs offered through Global Inclusion:

  • Flexible Work Program
  • Global Mentoring Program
  • Various Employee Networks and Affinity Groups, a grassroots foundation for our inclusion efforts
  • Sponsorships of external events and organizations focused on diversity and inclusion
  • A formal Work/Life Program to help you balance your professional life and personal responsibilities
  • A recognition program for employees who display best-practice inclusion behavior
  • Inclusion-focused leadership initiatives, with a 30-member global working group
  • Performance goals focused on inclusion-related behavior
  • A Global Employee Engagement Survey, “Voices of Inclusion” program and other opportunities to share feedback

Employee Networks

Employee networks include employees united around a common goal, seeking to help shape our future with their unique perspectives. These networks create volunteer, career development and cultural opportunities aligned with members’ goals and interests, including:

  • Asian Professionals Group
  • Bible Study Group
  • Black Professionals Group
  • Catholic Employee Network
  • CFA Network

Our people power our organization, and our sustainability depends on meeting our employees’ diverse needs while addressing business needs. With a more flexible work environment, we can address these needs together, with positive outcomes for both.

When possible, flexible work arrangements can help you balance work and personal commitments with alternatives to the traditional workday, the standard workweek or the traditional workplace. Our formal Flex Work Program offers five possible flex work options: Flex Place (remote working), Flex Time, Compressed Schedules, Reduced Schedules or Job-Sharing.

With Global Mentoring, our employees teach, coach and guide one another toward personal and professional growth. The program helps employees create connections and strengthens our work community across locations, functions and business lines.

Employee Feedback

Our annual Employee Engagement Survey measures levels of employee commitment and engagement so our Inclusion programs can support areas of need. And the “Voices of Inclusion” program lets you communicate directly with senior executives about inclusion issues.
