Diverse, Inclusive and Respectful Workplace
TransCanada strives to create a workplace that is non-discriminatory, fair, equitable, accessible, harassment free, diverse and inclusive, and values the contributions of all employees. Our success depends on the talent, skills and expertise of our people. It is through our differences in how we think and act that we are able to form integrated teams that are creative, innovative and high performing, consistently delivering superior business results.
People feel empowered and thrive in a culture that recognizes, appreciates and utilizes the unique perspectives and background of others. When we capitalize on the strengths of each employee, and leverage his or her differences, we have a diverse, inclusive and respectful workplace.
We take our commitment of diversity and inclusion seriously. It’s a part of everything we do and requires active participation from every employee.
The following elements are in place to support our commitment:
- Corporate values
- Diversity training for all new employees and leaders
- Employee resource groups
- Employment practices, such as Flexible Work Arrangements to support diversity and inclusion
- Formal policies to support governing legislation and accessibility
It Makes Sense
TransCanada’s commitment to diversity and inclusion makes sense for the following reasons:
- Changing workforce demographics and labour shortages
There is unprecedented generational diversity in the workplace today and the labour pool is dramatically different than in the past. In order to attract and retain the most talented individuals to deliver value and quality in all that we do, we need to appeal to available talent, which is overwhelmingly represented by a vast array of backgrounds and life experiences.
- Stakeholder relations and license to operate
We are able to maintain a competitive edge by mirroring the diversity that exists in the communities where we live and work. Diversity in our workplace leads to a better understanding of stakeholder perceptions and concerns, which impact our ability to accomplish big things that matter.
- Employee productivity and performance:
Our success hinges on the success of each and every employee which is why TransCanada is committed to providing opportunities that help develop your career, help you reach your full potential and contribute to a high-performing workplace culture.
- Inspires creative and innovative thinking
It is through our differences in how we think and act that we are able to form integrated teams that are creative, innovative and high performing, consistently delivering superior business results.
- Employee engagement
Employees who feel like their unique skills, perspectives and backgrounds are valued and respected by their company and colleagues are more engaged, feel more pride in accomplishments and make a greater contribution to their teams and the organization.
