Our people are our unique fingerprint.

The rich diversity of experience, expertise, backgrounds, and beliefs we bring together globally, differentiates our business, powers our progress, and enables our success. Our focus is making Wood a great place to work, where all our people feel they belong, are empowered, and supported to succeed.

Fundamentals of how we move the dial

Leadership and allies

We have leadership champions who help drive Wood’s DE&I activities.  We have allies at all levels of Wood who champion those in underrepresented groups.

Culture and inclusion

We look to foster a work environment and culture where inclusion is delivered structurally and behaviourally, through policies, training, and communication plans.

Employee life cycle

We will attract and retain key talent from the full spectrum of the global talent pool, unlocking diverse talent and matching people to best opportunities for their growth within Wood, aligned to representation targets.

Employee networks

We will empower an employee network structure which facilitates employee voice and feedback loop.  We will continuously evolve our approach based on internal and external inputs.
