Encouraging and Embracing Staff Diversity and Inclusion
As a global company, MWH considers diversity and inclusion an essential element to achieving success toward our goal of working as “One Global Community”. Therefore, we are committed to actively recruiting top talent with diverse skills, backgrounds and personal experiences, and providing all employees with a supportive environment in which to flourish.
You will find our employees succeed based on their achievements not on their race, gender or national origin. That is because we are fully committed to creating a supportive and satisfying environment for every employee across the world.
We believe that solutions come from looking at things from wide variety of perspectives. By drawing on the wide variety of life experiences, value structures, life styles, and cultural backgrounds, MWH uses our own creativity and innovation to provide varied and innovative solutions to our clients.
MWH often encourages employees to work outside of their home countries. We want staff to be comfortable not only with other cultures, but also with other types of complex projects. It is all part of our commitment to building and sharing knowledge company-wide. This is accomplished through:
- Knowledge communities and internal affinity groups
- The MWH University system
- And day-to-day interaction with one another – working collaboratively on a ‘follow the sun’ approach to work.
