Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Collaboration & Inclusion

Culture of CARE Commitment

Our employees are our most valuable asset. Every one of our employees has the right to work in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. A Culture of CARE allows each employee to reach their full potential, be their most productive, and do their best without fear of harassment, hazing, or bullying. With the support of one another, working as an accepting, collaborative team,  we achieve our best work.

Culture of CARE Compliance

Safety is our number one priority. Safety goes beyond protection from physical hazards. We know that workers who have not been integrated into their workplace culture are more likely to have accidents due to the increased psychological and emotional stress from being excluded. Unwelcome, offensive, discriminatory, or harassing language or behavior affects our employees’ psychological and emotional wellbeing, putting their health and safety at risk.

Better Together

Our strength is the collective sum of our employees’ differences, traits, skills, backgrounds, and experiences. By embracing a Culture of CARE, we will retain top talent, improve employee productivity and job satisfaction, increase our ability to innovate, reach new customer bases, and create a safer workplace. We ensure a Culture of CARE by committing to the following principles:

COMMIT to hire and pay based on skill and experience regardless of ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
ATTRACT prospective employees by creating inclusive workplaces that are free from harassment, hazing, and bullying.
RETAIN high-performing employees by identifying and removing barriers to advancement.
EMPOWER every employee to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Any unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, gender (including sexual orientation), national origin, age, disability, or genetic information.
A ritual or initiation process – commonly for apprentices or new employees – that intentionally causes embarrassment, harassment, or ridicule and risks emotional, mental, or physical harm, regardless of the person’s willingness to participate.

Zero Tolerance

Harassment, hazing, or bullying will not be tolerated.

These behaviors can include:

  • Language (written or verbal)
  • Actions
  • Gestures
Our Commitment to You

Just as you have the right to refuse to work in physically unsafe conditions, you also have the right to refuse to work if you are experiencing emotionally or psychologically unsafe conditions in the form of harassment, hazing, or bullying. We expect all employees to commit to and comply with GH Phipps’ Culture of Care policy. Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Employees who believe they have been subject to any discrimination that conflicts with the Culture of CARE policy should seek assistance from a supervisor or a member of the Human Resources Department. All GH Phipps employees sign an Acknowledgment and Agreement of GH Phipps’ Culture of CARE Workplace Policy. This is part of our commitment to “Integrity” within our Phipps Core Values.
