Inclusion and Diversity
We aim to create an inclusive workplace to attract and retain the most talented people from all backgrounds and cultures.
We focus on creating an inclusive organization where all employees feel engaged and know their work makes an important contribution. An inclusive environment welcomes different knowledge, perspectives, experiences and working styles from across our global population. This not only enhances individual creativity and innovation, but makes good business sense.
Equality means affording all employees equal treatment regardless of actual or perceived race; colour; ethnic or national origin; age; gender; sexual orientation; marriage and civil partnership; gender identity and/or expression; religion or belief; physical ability/ disability and/or chronic health conditions (such as HIV/AIDS status); genetic make-up; or other protected characteristics as relevant in a country.
Gender Diversity – We are focused on enabling gender diversity in management and senior roles. In 2013 we introduced targeted individual and group coaching and sponsorship for emerging talent. In 2014, we will invite employees to take part in sessions to discuss hidden barriers that could hinder gender diversity.
Cultural and Ethnic Diversity – We monitor the proportion of ethnic minorities in our workforce at a local country level against industry averages and the national population. We also engage with groups representing diverse communities.
Disability – We are committed to ensuring that people with disabilities have career opportunities at GSK, bringing valuable talent and expertise to the business. Disability is a global focus for GSK and we are establishing a Global Disability Council to agree priority areas, set objectives and monitor our progress. We also make every effort to retain and support employees who become disabled while working at GSK.
