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.

At Wood, we are committed to creating an inspired culture with diversity and inclusion permeating every corner of our global organisation, 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.

Inclusion and engagement

At #TeamWood we want our people to feel comfortable to be themselves, and to know that their voices are heard, respected and trusted so that each remarkable person can contribute to our – and their own – success.

We continue to ensure we are delivering structurally and behaviourally through policies, initiatives, communication campaigns and engagement activities.

Employee life cycle

We value people for who they are and the experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives that shape them. Therefore, as an equal opportunity employer, we strongly encourage applicants of all genders, ages, ethnicities, faiths and beliefs, marital statuses, mental health, cultures, abilities, sexual orientation, protected veteran status, and life experiences to apply.

This will enable us to unlock diverse talent and match people to best opportunities for their growth within Wood, aligned to representation targets.

Employee networks

At #TeamWood our aim is to create a great place to work and to embed diversity and inclusion into everything we do.

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

Measurement & evaluation

We will have effective and reliable methods in place to monitor and measure progress on DE&I activities, including key demographic data, setting goals to improve representation in key areas and measuring engagement outcomes
