Diversity Policy

StrataG̅ Works is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our partners invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture but our reputation and company’s achievement as well.
We embrace and encourage our partners’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our partners unique.
StrataG̅ Works’ diversity initiatives are applicable—but not limited—to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; promotions; transfers; social and recreational programs; layoffs; terminations; and the ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces:
  • Respectful communication and cooperation between all partners.
  • Teamwork and employee participation, permitting the representation of all groups and employee perspectives.
  • Work/life balance through flexible work schedules to accommodate partners’ varying needs.
  • Employer and employee contributions to the communities we serve to promote a greater understanding and respect for diversity.
All partners of StrataG̅ Works have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All partners are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work, at work functions on or off the worksite, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events. All partners are also required to develop and facilitate at least one diversity awareness annually to enhance their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility.
Any partner found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.
Partners who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or an HR representative.
