Where Everyone Fits In
We're a global business, which means we have the opportunity to interact with people of various backgrounds from all around the world. We value employees who contribute to our understanding of different educational backgrounds, cultures, ages and languages. We believe a diverse and inclusive workforce helps us communicate effectively and adds to our business success. This is just one of the reasons Agrium has been honored as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for each of the past six years. (Click here to read more on this accolade.)
An Inclusive Culture
We believe our success is tied to maintaining and enhancing our inclusive culture. This means people are valued because of, and not in spite of, their differences. Diversity is a collective mixture of visible differences and similarities such as age, gender or race and not-so-visible dimensions such as culture, work style or education. In the past few years, Agrium has grown to more than 15,000 employees throughout the world. To continue to thrive locally and globally, we need to capitalize on our diversity by setting corporate direction and policy to ensure that we have an experienced and inclusive workforce comprising of international talent.
Find Your Fit
Employee Resource Groups, such as the Agrium's Women's Leadership Group and Young Professionals Network, create awareness and opportunity for constructive action and dialogue. We're committed to the employee perspective on diversity-inclusion and how it contributes to our business and individual career success.
How Agrium Encourages Inclusion
As a top employer, Agrium has policies in place that promote acceptance. We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or bullying in our workplaces. We build a respectful climate where we value diversity, leverage all talents, hear all perspectives and strive to recognize and develop each person to their full potential. We encourage our employees to be accepting of all, and we take violations of our Code of Business Ethics very seriously.
To better understand diversity in our business units and across the company, we are monitoring and tracking the diverse populations on the basis of turnover, internal moves and hiring practices. We're also benchmarking against external talent pools.
At Agrium, we believe all employees are responsible for creating a fair and equitable environment that will foster trust and a fair sense of accomplishment.
