DIVERSITY POLICY

Diversity in our workplace broadens thinking and stimulates innovation.

Quirch Foods is committed to building a diverse, inclusive, engaged, and empowered workforce to enable us to manage our business with a focus on health and safety, the environment, ethical behavior, quality, and good corporate citizenship in the communities we operate. A diverse workplace impacts how we act and opens our minds to more creativity and collaboration.

Quirch Foods strives to provide a positive work environment by maintaining a strong culture of diversity and inclusion, supported by our code of business conduct and formal employment practices. Our diversity and inclusion framework provides new and existing diversity and inclusion-related initiatives. This framework guides our board of directors, management, employees, vendors, sub-contractors, and partners in developing an inclusive culture. Our approach to diversity and inclusion is supported by a range of policies that further encourage inclusive business practices, including:

Equal Employment and Non-Discrimination

Quirch Foods has a long-standing commitment to supporting equal opportunity for all. The company’s policy is to promote and ensure equal employment opportunities for all current and prospective employees.

This policy governs all matters related to recruitment, advertising, and the initial employment selection. It also applies to all other aspects of employment, including, but not limited to, compensation, promotion, demotion, transfer, lay-offs, terminations, leave of absence, and training opportunities. The company prohibits retaliation against any employee who makes a good faith complaint.

Anti-Harassment

Quirch Foods is committed to providing a work environment free from all forms of discrimination and conduct that can be considered harassing, coercive, or disruptive, including sexual harassment. Quirch Foods prohibits and will not tolerate harassment or discrimination based on legally protected status.

Employee Training

Preventing harassment and ethics training are mandatory requirements for all Quirch Foods employees. To further progress our diverse culture, we recognize the need to train employees and managers on inclusion and unconscious bias.
