Diversity. Every company likes to talk about it, but few have embraced it with quite the same commitment as we have here at Raytheon. As a result, diversity has become a competitive imperative plus an integral part of our business model and philosophy, particularly as we continue to grow internationally.
In our experience, diversity of talent and thought are what drive innovation. Our most creative teams are those that tap into dissimilar perspectives and ideas – and so it is that we have created a welcoming, respectful and supportive workplace that engages all types of employees, regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, family history or physical ability. This allows us to ensure that:
- the company retains, attracts and develops world-class people.
- people are treated with dignity and respect, and difference is valued as a company core competency.
- employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential and make their maximum contribution.
- we enjoy world-class partnerships with our customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders.
Put simple, diversity of talent and thought is key to our ability to provide solutions to the global market. And if we are to truly make the world a safer place, our organization must reflect that world.
So it is that we continue to strive to build a culture around recognizing, respecting and leveraging difference. Now, as the global environment rapidly evolves and grows ever more competitive, the next chapter in our journey to inclusiveness will be critical.
