This makes diversity and inclusion everyone’s responsibility – that of every employee throughout our organization. Enabling everyone at Casella to perform at their best while being themselves is fundamental to our continued success.
Our approach to diversity and inclusion starts with our people. It starts with helping them discover ways of working that foster a sense of inclusion and a deep sense of belonging—for themselves, for their teams, and for the company. We know that through inclusive leaders developing a culture where everyone can bring their ideas, we can innovate. At the same time, we’re focused on building a diverse workforce by attracting, developing, and retaining employees, as well as encouraging connections within the company to allow our people to feel they belong.
We believe that by maintaining a diverse workforce we will be employing the best talent and benefiting from varied and unique skills and perspectives. It is also critical to embed Diversity, Equity & Inclusion into our business strategies in order to produce great business results.
