The Canon philosophy of Kyosei conveys our ambition to help all people regardless of race, religion or culture, to live and work together for the common good. Canon's regular "Your Voice" surveys tell a story of a proud, motivated and diverse workforce that cares deeply about equality, sustainability and the future.
"Diversity and Inclusion are key to our philosophy and we aim to bring this to life through active Employee Resource Groups, a calendar of celebrations and dedicated Inclusion Ambassadors" says Caroline Price, SVP Human Resources. "This helps us to reflect the diversity of our customers and our businesses, and ensures that we're an inclusive place to work."
Diversity & Inclusion is embedded in our Employee Value Proposition (EVP) and represented across the full lifecycle of our employees, from hire to retire. Though these D&I commitments, we're creating a more inclusive organisation where everyone can feel respected and valued.
Right across our recruitment, talent development and management processes, we strive to appoint, develop and reward the best person for every role, from apprentices and interns all the way up to our senior leadership posts.
Diversity, Equality and Inclusion are also key pillars of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) agenda and values. We aim to provide opportunities for growth, learning and development that will support our work to create scientific and technological innovations, and help realise a society in which everyone can play an active role.
