Diversity at Southern Company Gas
We define diversity not just as race or gender but also as the differences in the backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and ideas of our employees. We believe diversity is an asset that brings value to our organization. Viewing diversity as an asset means that each individual is valued for who they are and what they bring to our business. Life experiences and personal perspectives enable us to respond and think differently, approach challenges and solve problems differently, make suggestions and decisions differently, and see different opportunities and risks. The more assets an organization possesses, the greater its ability to innovate, grow and compete.
Inclusion at Southern Company Gas
We define inclusion as a work environment without barriers where all employees feel welcomed, valued, respected and engaged. In this way, we recognize, respect and value each individual. Inclusion leverages the power of diversity to achieve our business strategies and goals. By providing an inclusive work environment the company utilizes the diversity of our workforce to drive results, performance, engagement and innovation.
Our diversity and inclusion strategy includes:
• Creating an environment where employees have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
• Developing and sustain relationships with diverse suppliers to broaden access to products and services and provide economic inclusion.
• Forming partnerships to ensure the growth and vitality of the diverse communities we serve and in which we work and live and create business alliances.
