Diversity

 

We are working to be as diverse as the products we make

We believe that our competitive advantage and reputation are greatly enhanced when our workforce reflects the diversity of our customers, consumers, suppliers and communities. Our Diversity commitment is designed to connect with diverse communities so that we are positioned to attract, retain and develop employees and deepen relationships with our suppliers and other business partners.

It Takes a Village to Settle a New Canadian

At our Global Technology Centre (GTC), located in the small town of Florenceville, Canada, with a population of just 1,500 people, more than 30 per cent of our employees are new Canadians. Having arrived from South America, India, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe, primarily due to McCain’s recruitment efforts, we have put much effort toward ensuring these new employees transition effectively, and the result is clear – 99 per cent of employees who arrive as temporary foreign workers apply for permanent resident status and remain in Florenceville.
