Employee Community Service

Our Diversity

Excelitas believes diversity is an asset to its business. Diversity fuels greater creativity and innovation -- thus enhancing organizational effectiveness. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of our culture and reputation and promotes the company’s success and growth.

A diverse workforce enables us to better understand the needs and priorities of our customers and suppliers – business partners who themselves operate in all regions of the world and who seek to promote diversity within their own organizations. As Excelitas itself promotes and achieves greater diversity, we can build and foster better business relationships with our customers and suppliers.

Similarly, as Excelitas grows, diversity in our workforce enhances our ability to seamlessly integrate the personnel and cultures of our company acquisitions across various regions and markets around the world.  We believe an open-minded company culture that promotes diversity and inclusion will help facilitate a smoother transition into a cohesive combined workforce while achieving operational continuity and company goals.

Diversity creates a more attractive and open culture at Excelitas for our current employees and those whom we recruit to join Excelitas. We seek to attract the best diverse talent as well as to engage and retain our existing talent by enabling employees to develop professionally and personally in a welcoming and supportive community.

Our commitment to diversity extends to all areas of our business including recruitment and selection, talent development, skill enhancement, mentoring, promotions, transfers, social and recreational programs, employee retention, succession planning, training and development, policies and procedures, and the ongoing development of a progressive work environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity.
