Diversity and inclusion at Fugro
Fugro aspires to attract, develop and retain people from all sorts of backgrounds. Adding new talent to our team, from disparate places and with distinctive perspectives, stands us in good stead as we work together to create a safe and liveable world.
Our approach to diversity, equity and inclusion is simple. We want to encourage a culture of belonging, in which everyone can bring their best selves to work with confidence. Doing so involves initiatives that support all, irrespective of race, ethnicity, nationality, class, caste, religion, belief, gender, language, age, health and education – or any other attributes that make our people unique.
With our values in mind – we are determined to deliver, we prepare for tomorrow, we do what’s right and we build trust – we’re actively creating a culture in which our people feel empowered to be authentic and bring new ideas, based on their unique knowledge and experiences. And by encouraging enterprise and growth on personal and professional levels, we’re aiming to build an even stronger workforce.
Diversity – the differences that make us unique
We aim to ensure that everyone is treated respectfully, fairly and with dignity. Nobody is to be discriminated against on the basis of, among other things: race, national origin, colour, gender, religion, age, pregnancy, disability, or political association. The diversity of our people and their thought processes is to be valued and we commit to non-discrimination in all phases of employment.
Equity – the justice of our systems
A commitment to equity means that we strive to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to realise their full potential and access relevant support, and no-one is unjustly disadvantaged. As a diverse organisation we’re trying to build a culture which respects every employee for who they are. To that end, we commit to providing fair and equal opportunities for all employees, at every stage of their careers.
Inclusion – how we act
Inclusivity embraces and celebrates the perspectives, voices, values and needs of each individual. By acting inclusively we intend to embody an organisation in which all feel listened to, respected, valued and part of Fugro’s broader purpose. We believe that inclusion should be woven into the fabric of our culture in ways that will enable us to build on our shared company values: we are determined to deliver, we prepare for tomorrow, we do what’s right and we build trust.
Belonging – how connected we feel
By instilling a sense of belonging in our workforce, we affirm our commitment to a culture in which employees feel safe, supported and accepted. Creating a sense of affinity with, and security in, the organisation should help all of our people to feel more connected to its culture, values and purpose – and of course, to each other.
How we deliver
All of Fugro’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives are applicable – but not limited – to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development and training, and internal mobility.
