Respect for Our Colleagues
Through The CoorsTek Way, we value the inherent worth and dignity of every individual. Our success can be achieved only when we treat everyone with respect. Respect in the workplace, along with individual excellence and collaborative teamwork, is how we accomplish our goals.
DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND NON-DISCRIMINATION
We are committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where diverse views are valued. We recognize that a diverse mix of backgrounds, talents, and experiences drives innovation and allows us to meet the needs of our global customer base.
We continually ensure equal opportunities in employment. We never base employment decisions, including recruiting, hiring, training, salary, or promotion, on legally protected characteristics under applicable law, such as race, color, gender, age, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, citizenship, disability, pregnancy, genetic information, veteran status, political affiliation, or union membership.
ANTI-HARASSMENT AND ANTI-RETALIATION
We strive to provide a work environment free from harassment where all persons are treated with dignity and respect. We do not tolerate any behavior that creates an offensive, intimidating, humiliating, or hostile work environment that interferes with another person’s work performance. Harassing behavior may include mental, physical, or verbal abuse, unwelcome sexual advances or remarks, offensive jokes, or derogatory comments.
We also do not tolerate retaliation against any person who reports harassing behavior in good faith. Never shall an employee be demoted, dismissed, have his or her pay reduced, or given a negative evaluation because he or she made a complaint about harassing behavior.
We respect the fundamental human rights and dignity of all people in our operations and supply chain by:
- Forbidding the use of child labor and forced labor and not tolerating any form of exploitation of children, human trafficking, physical punishment, or involuntary servitude
- Following all applicable laws for conditions of employment, including maximum hours and overtime and minimum wage and benefits
- Respecting each employee’s right under applicable law to freedom of association, to collective bargaining, and to choose to join or not join a trade union
- Providing humane, safe, and secure working conditions.
We expect our suppliers and business partners to uphold these principles, as well.
