Diversity - Attracting, developing, engaging and retaining a diverse workforce drives our success by ensuring that a wide array of perspectives and experiences are incorporated across our culture, decisions and actions. We promote diversity at all levels of the organization to help employees feel valued and included. For us, diversity is far more than the legally protected classes (age, gender, race, color, ethnicity, religion, physical ability, sexual orientation and gender identity). It encompasses an individual’s communication style, life experiences, educational background, geographic origin, socioeconomic background and any other variables that influence a person’s perspective. Throughout our history, Battelle employees have leveraged their diversity of thoughts and perspectives to generate innumerable ideas and solutions for our customers.
Reduced or Flexible Hours - Battelle recognizes that the need to balance personal and professional priorities can vary. Alternative work schedules are available to employees to support flexibility in meeting life’s challenges and can vary according to location and business unit. Options include flextime, variable work schedules, telecommuting, part-time employment and job sharing. At Battelle, we have created a culture of excellence that benefits our employees, communities and environment. This plays out not just in our daily work and our commitment to furthering science and technology, but through our volunteerism and giving.
