Diversity & Inclusion

One of our greatest strengths is the diversity of our workforce, with people of many nationalities and backgrounds working together and sharing common objectives. Neeco does not have a ‘nationality’ that describes its culture but operates in a truly global manner throughout the world. As a company, we encourage fair employment practices worldwide and offer equal opportunities to all our employees.

Global workforce diversity

Our long-standing commitment to national and cultural diversity fosters a way of working that is global in outlook yet local in practice, and this permeates every layer of the Company, including every level of management. Our leadership team includes officers from North America, Asia, Australia, and the Middle East.

We recognize that our ability to attract, develop, motivate, and retain a highly competent and diverse workforce has been the key to our success for many decades. By creating a variety of perspectives that stimulate productive creativity and innovation, we maintain our competitive edge.

We believe that a culture of diversity and inclusion is not just the right thing to do—it is a business imperative. Our guiding principles to enable an inclusive culture are three fold:

  • Meritocracy drives our actions, decisions, and employee advancement.
  • While it is a competitive advantage that our workforce communicates in a multitude of languages, English is the common language of our internal management communication.
  • Employees are expected to treat one another professionally, with mutual respect, trust, and individual dignity. They must also display respect when interacting with customers, contractors, and others involved in our operations, including members of local communities. Neeco does not tolerate any discrimination based on race, color, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, disability, religion, marital status, or union membership.

National and cultural diversity

Neeco recruits and develops people in alignment with our business objectives and the countries in which we work. Neeco has been successful in attracting and developing nationalities from nonwestern and emerging countries, now integrated into all levels of the workforce, including senior management.

Gender balance and equal pay

Achieving improved gender balance has been a focus of policy and action in Neeco since the late 1990s. Since then, we have continued to expand opportunities for women across our operations, technology, business, and management roles. Our goal is to continually strive for gender balance around the world through recruiting, career development, and a culture of inclusion. We continually monitor compensation equality for women and men across all jobs, in every country, with the goal of maintaining equal pay.

LGBT+ diversity

We strive to foster a culture where employees who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or nonbinary are encouraged to be their authentic selves and are respected as valued members of the Neeco team.

Age diversity

We value the perspectives and the breadth of experience of all our employees regardless of age. Neeco is dedicated to supporting employees in their growth journey at every step of their career through continuous learning and knowledge sharing.
