Diversity & Inclusion is a core value at DTZ, and plays an important role in how we conduct our business and ourselves each and every day. With Diversity & Inclusion, everyone at DTZ benefits. That goes for all of our employees, from senior leadership and managers to field and hourly employees, as well as for our customers, and for the communities we serve.
At DTZ, we seek and value diversity among our employees because we recognize that attracting, developing and retaining a mix of people enriches our company, and is essential to creativity, performance, and business growth.
Our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion, as a business imperative, starts with the active recruitment of a diverse talented workforce. It continues with our practice of providing our employees with opportunities and support in the achievement of their personal growth and career development. This allows us to assemble and nurture a skilled, high-performing workforce that is reflective of the diverse North American marketplace of which we are a part.
We also put our pledge to work when cultivating external relationships with like-minded professional and civic groups, and with suppliers that understand the importance of embracing differences, and turning them into a positive force to effectively achieve a common goal.
With 15,000 employees in North America, DTZ continually strives to ensure that Diversity & Inclusion is an integral part of our Company.
Our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion embraces our responsibility to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. DTZ has a long-standing policy of non-discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, creed, sexual orientation, disability, ancestry, marital or veteran status.
Our Diversity & Inclusion Vision Statement sums it up best:
DTZ attracts, develops, and retains a diverse, talented, creative, and innovative workforce by fostering an environment that is inclusive at all levels and where each individual feels welcomed, valued, respected and inspired to contribute to the success of the Company, our business partners, and the community at large.
