Diversity and Inclusion
GC&E understands that fostering an environment of inclusion, collaboration, and ownership serves as the catalyst for increasing our competitive advantage. At GC&E, we believe in maintaining a workplace that is diverse and inclusive of beliefs, cultural background, job experiences, thoughts and ideas. These unique characteristics, brought together, are fundamental to promoting innovation, increasing profitability and driving results for our customers and the mission's they support. Diversity includes all of us. Putting this belief into action, diversity is part of our core values and is included in programs and practices throughout GC&E.
Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Commitment
Equal employment opportunity and affirmative action are the foundation of diversity at GC&E. Our commitment to providing an inclusive workplace for all individuals begins with our commitment to equal opportunity and affirmative action.
Our policies promote equal employment opportunity for all employees and applicants without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or veteran status. This equal opportunity applies to every area of employment at GC&E, including recruitment, hiring, training, transfer, and promotion. We continue to affirm our commitment to an inclusive workplace through Affirmative Action Plans that address employment opportunities for qualified women, minorities, veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
Our policies prohibit discrimination and harassment based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including same sex harassment), age, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or veteran status. It is important that employees and applicants trust that they can address a concern of discrimination or harassment without retribution. GC&E will not tolerate retaliation against an individual who reports, opposes, or participates in an investigation of discrimination or harassment that violates GC&E's policies. Our management team is charged with the responsibility to implement our commitments in these areas. Most importantly, all employees contribute to this vision on a daily basis by demonstrating respect for each other and our customers.
