The diversity of our nearly 15,000 employees has been, and continues to be, essential to our success as a company. We remain committed to providing our employees with a workplace that fosters a culture of inclusion, equity, and respect for all. In furtherance of that goal, equal employment opportunities, affirmative action, and diversity and inclusion are fundamental principles at our company. Our commitment to these principles is as essential as our mission of providing energy services to our customers safely, reliably, and efficiently.
In 2015, we set the groundwork for our new diversity and inclusion strategy. Creating an inclusive culture helps us recruit and retain the best of the best. It invites each of us to speak up and voice our ideas and perspectives, listen to each other, and value our individual strengths. An inclusive culture expands our possibilities for the future.
