How Do We Define Diversity?
Vectren defines diversity as a mental/physical state whereby individual differences and similarities are embraced and respected as a necessary element of an environment. It is a global approach of inclusion for the workplace and society in general.
Differences and similarities are not only based on race, ethnicity, gender and age, but also thinking styles, work styles, work experiences, geographic location, family status, education, military experience, and physical abilities, to name only a few. Our similarities and differences impact who we are and how we relate to others at work and in all other dimensions of our life.
Like many companies, we use the Diversity Wheel to help us explain how these dimensions of diversity affect our work force, work place and the market place.
As stated in our definition of diversity, diversity is a mental and physical state whereby individual similarities and differences are embraced and respected. Inclusion entails creating a corporate culture and work environment where employees are valued, developed and rewarded for their performance in helping the company achieve business success. It also means that we recognize, respect and support the diversity of the people and communities we serve.
An inclusive environment supports our efforts to build a culture of employee engagement, teamwork and equity and enhances Vectren’s ability to attract, recruit and retain top talent.
