We intend to make all reasonable efforts to live up to our Equal
Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action Plan.
We have prepared the Plan to accurately reflect our current status, our
actions to date, and our intentions for the future. We have assigned overall responsibility for
fulfillment of the Equal Employment Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action
Plan to Ken Tebbetts, Vice President, Human Resources, who will periodically
conduct analyses of all personnel actions to ensure that we are living up to
our stated intention.
Our management is responsible for the ongoing monitoring of all
personnel actions in their respective areas of supervision and will carry out
the intentions of the Equal Opportunity policy and Affirmative Action Plan to
the fullest extent possible.
Our employment practices are
non-discriminatory and are based upon factors that are job-related. Factors such as race, color, religion,
gender, marital status, national origin or ancestry, disability, veteran status,
military service, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic
information, or political belief or activity are not job-related. We have designed the Affirmative Action Plan
to report and monitor all related procedures that will include, but will not be
1. Recruiting, hiring, training, and promoting applicants and
employees in all job classifications without discrimination;
2. Basing decisions on employment so as to further the
principle of equal employment opportunity;
3. Ensuring that promotion decisions are in accord with
principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid requirements
for promotional opportunities; and
4. Ensuring that all other personnel actions, such as
compensation, benefits, transfers, layoffs, return from layoffs, IHI-sponsored
training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, will
be administered without discrimination.
We promise not to retaliate against any person who files a
complaint concerning Equal Opportunity or Affirmative Action and will ensure
that no one harasses, intimidates, threatens, coerces, or discriminates against
any individual exercising rights under this policy.
The Persons with
Disabilities and Veterans Affirmative Action Plan is available for inspection
in the Human Resources Department during normal business hours. Please contact Human Resources for further
