KCI Equal Employment Opportunity and Positive Discrimination Policy
KCI continues to be an Equal Opportunity/ Positive Discrimination employer. The continued success of our business growth and competitiveness depends heavily on our EEO/AA compliance programme work in addition to the full and effective use of all the available talent. To this end, it is KCI policy to provide Equal Employment Opportunities to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, colour, religion, gender, nationality, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or any other protected class status. Our Equal Opportunity/Positive Discrimination policy applies to all areas of employment, including in part: recruitment, compensation and benefits, promotion and transfer, training and development, discipline and dismissal, and recreational and social activities.
KCI is committed to providing a work environment that is free of harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation based on race, colour, religion, gender, nationality, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or any other protected class status; and every KCI manager and employee is responsible for day-to-day compliance with the policy. KCI will not tolerate any form of illegal harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation in the workplace and will hold managers and employees who violate this policy accountable, to the extent of any required discipline and dismissal. More specific information is provided in the KCI Equal Opportunities Policy, as well as in training materials provided for (a) supervisors and managers (b) new employee orientation.
If, as an employee or candidate for employment, you feel that you have been harassed, discriminated and/or retaliated against because of race, colour, religion, gender, nationality, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or any other protected class status, KCI encourages you to contact your Human Resources Department. Complaints alleging harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation will be investigated promptly, and as with all required corrective action, with complete confidentiality.
KCI is confident that all of us, working together, will create and maintain an environment that is free from harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation, while encouraging the full and equal participation of all available talent, and that ongoing progress in meeting our Equal Opportunities/Positive Discrimination compliance objectives will continue to add to the business growth and success of KCI.
