Every company likes to talk about diversity, 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 and an integral part of our business model and philosophy, particularly as we continue to grow internationally. Are you ready to join an organisation that values every point of view?
Because, in our experience, diversity of talent and thought are what drive innovation. That’s why we look for mission-drive self-starters who enjoy being part of a supportive and diverse group meeting real-world challenges. Our most creative teams are those that tap into one-of-a-kind viewpoints and ideas – 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.
Raytheon UK has invested in a number of employee resource groups with particular focus areas including the Raytheon Women's Network (RWN UK), Raytheon Reservists (RaRe), YESnet (Young Employees Networking) and Raytheon Alliance for Diverse Abilities (RADA).
The RWN UK provides a network to foster, celebrate and advocate for women's success and exposure.
The Raytheon Reservists group was formed to support the Reservists and Veterans from the Armed Forces covenant which Raytheon UK signed in 2014, to support the UK Armed Forces with a special focus on providing support for those members of the Armed Forces Reservists who work within Raytheon. Due to the varied activities and support to our Armed Forces, Raytheon UK has been awarded the prestigious Armed Forces Covenant ‘Gold Award’ Employee Recognition.
We’re also active in local communities, particularly through engagement with local schools as part of the Raytheon STEM programme. This corporate social responsibility programme aims to encourage greater participation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects with a large emphasis on encouraging more women into these areas.
Put simply, 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 organisation must reflect that world.
We continue to strive to build a culture around recognising, 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.
