Inclusion and Diversity in our Workforce
Developing a diverse workforce and a more balanced and inclusive culture, both within Cargill and across the industry
Cargill is committed to recruiting, developing and retaining a diverse workforce across the company. We are building a more balanced and inclusive culture, whilst also driving progress across the maritime industry.
The maritime industry is undergoing several changes and such disruption will certainly affect its workforce. From automation to employee diversity to skilled workers, shipping is shaping its workforce of the future, and increasing the number of females needs to be a part of that. Currently just 2% of the maritime industry is represented by females.
Cargill believes that diverse and agile teams make a stronger organization, one that better understands and serves our customers and the communities where we operate. We strive to create a safe and inclusive environment for our employees, one that incorporates a broad range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. This is crucial to our ability to attract and retain the very best people, and to our continued success in the market.
To do so, we continue to implement a more balanaced and diverse recruitment process, we have started to benchmark our actions against our industry peers, and we are mentoring our existing talent to build the future leaders of Cargill.
