Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Being a company with a global footprint carries a responsibility for recognizing and celebrating the characteristics that make all our people unique and different. We want to create an environment where everyone feels valued and appreciated because we believe it is through our differences that we find strength in innovation and a creative spirit that leads to ingenuity and out-of-the-box thinking.

Diverse Global Workforce

Our talented workforce is as diverse as our business presence, being represented on 6 continents in more than 50 countries around the world. We have 3,000+ employees and speak over 30 languages. Each one of us is different, and brings our own experiences, backgrounds and perspectives to the workplace.

Building Our Bench

Developing and retaining a diverse workforce provides us with a sustained competitive advantage. We recognize that a diverse mix of backgrounds, skills, and experiences drives new ideas, products, and services and enhances our ability to partner with each other and with our customers. Through Building Our Bench we have established a plan to attract, develop, and retain our highly talented workforce that is representative of the regions in which we operate.

Workplace Diversity and Equal Opportunity

We respect diversity and strive to ensure an equal employment opportunity environment and an environment free of harassment and discrimination. Our commitment to diversity promotes and fosters attracting and maintaining a highly diverse and talented workforce without regard to race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or ancestry, and also without regard to disability, age, political affiliation, or any other legally protected status.

Core Lab’s Code of Ethics and Corporate Responsibility include an Equal Employment Opportunity Policy which states, in part:

It is the policy of Core Lab to provide equal employment opportunity in conformance with all applicable laws and regulations to individuals who are qualified to perform job requirements.

Core Lab Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment

At Core Laboratories, each and every employee, supervisor, manager and executive is responsible for preventing harassment by:

  • Treating others with courtesy and respect in all work relationships.
  • Eliminating harassing, discriminatory, and unprofessional behavior.
  • Reporting harassment, discrimination, and unprofessional behavior to Human Resources, the Corporate Compliance Officer or the Law Department so that each concern is investigated promptly and resolved appropriately.

Core Laboratories will act positively to investigate alleged harassment claims and to effectively remedy them when an allegation is determined to be valid.

As part of our efforts to increase awareness and inclusion we have incorporated into our Core Annual Compliance Curriculum training on:

  • Equal Opportunity, including material on Unconscious Bias
  • Harassment, Sexual Harassment and Unprofessional Behavior

Talent Management

Core Lab values its employees and is committed to providing resources that engage employees, enhance their work experience, and develop them for the future. To assist in this pledge, Core Lab has created its Talent Management Strategy based on the Employee Life Cycle.

Employee Life Cycle

Recruitment – to ensure we have a diverse employee population reflective of our communities and client base, we’ve implemented recruiting practices that support and encourage the hiring and retention of diverse talent.

Total Rewards – aligned to our business strategy and country-specific market influences, we offer competitive compensation and benefit programs in each country where we operate.

Performance Management – our annual Performance Management cycle is an ongoing process that enables managers and employees to collaborate throughout the year to set performance goals and development objectives that align to business objectives. This process is designed to help employees understand where they add value to the organization, provide focus on and discussion around career aspirations, and reward employees for high performance.

Development – we believe the success of our organization is built on great people doing outstanding work in often challenging environments, so we have formalized our commitment to our people and team’s strategy through the introduction of Employee Development as a core value.

Succession Planning – Core Lab’s commitment to building a strong pipeline of future leaders in our organization is stronger than ever. We believe succession planning isn’t just listing names - it’s having the right people, in the right place, with the right knowledge, skills, attributes, and behaviors - at the right time.
