Fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce benefits our people and our company. We want every Arcadian to feel proud to be themselves at work.
#ProudToBeMe is shorthand for our commitment to create a work environment where every Arcadian feels accepted and free to be themselves. Our people bring a diversity of experiences, ideas, and voices to our company, which make us better able to solve our clients’ challenges and create a more sustainable world.
Our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion.
People First is our number one company value and it entails ensuring that each and every Arcadian is treated equally, with respect and dignity, regardless of their age, disabilities, faith, gender, sexual orientation, or race. We have zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment, inappropriate behavior, or unfair treatment of any kind.
To continually improve our workplaces, we actively support equality, diversity, and inclusion workstreams within the company, focused on age, disability, faith, gender, LGBTIQA+ and race.
Also, our Executive Leadership is gender balanced and as part of our 2021 -2023 strategy, we have committed to establishing a workforce that is 40% female, by 2023.
We are also proud to have achieved Ambassador level in the 2020 Global Benchmark Report from Workplace Pride, the international platform for LGBTIQ+ inclusion at work. Additionally, Arcadis US Inc. ranks as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality,” according to the Human Rights Campaign, having received a perfect score on their Corporate Equality Index (2021).
"At Arcadis, our people are our greatest asset. That's why equality, diversity and inclusion are so important for our company."
