ING U.S.'s view on Equal Opportunity and Diversity. We realize we must reflect our diverse client base to be more sensitive to their needs and to be able to best adapt to their wishes. We promote a greater understanding of diversity and inclusion to create an environment wherein everyone has the opportunity to fully participate in achieving business and personal success and is valued for his or her distinctiveness.
ING U.S. understands the need to form diverse teams throughout the organization and to attract employees with a wide range of backgrounds and points of view. For us, diversity and inclusion is more than hiring people with a diverse background. It's about creating an inclusive culture, acknowledging and respecting differences. ING U.S.'s management is committed to promoting this. We aspire to create an atmosphere that is exciting, energizing and intellectually stimulating. We believe this can lead to better business decisions and innovation. In the end, diversity can create a better company for the good of shareholders, employees and customers alike.
Further, we are proud to note that we aggressively enforce our harassment and antidiscrimination workplace policies. And we provide ongoing diversity training to our managers that cover new focus areas such as sexual orientation and gender expression in the workplace.
