Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Diversity and inclusion have been a part of NESR’s core values since the company was created. We operate in 16 countries and employ more than 5000 men and women comprising more than 60 different nationalities. We operate across cultures, language barriers, and different time zones and differ in race, gender, age, nationality, language, ability, personality, and religious beliefs. We are united in our shared values, common objectives and the conviction that our diversity fosters creativity, innovation, tolerance and respect in our workplace. Our diversity is a reflection of the diversity of our clients, suppliers, and the communities in which we live and work.
We know that diversity does not automatically lead to inclusion. We embrace uniqueness and ensure that differences are appreciated, celebrated, and respected. We believe that everyone has the right to be heard and to be treated with fairness, dignity, and respect. We are dedicated to fostering an engaging, empowering, safe and responsible corporate culture, not only because it is the right thing to do, but because the diversity of our workforce and the inclusiveness of our culture strengthen our long-term competitiveness and sustainability.
We operate in a space where women’s entry into the workforce is a relatively recent phenomenon. We are cognizant of the fact that women face many barriers to entry and advancement, and our goal is to safeguard gender equity in our workplace. We are committed to improving gender diversity by increasing the percentage of women in our workforce, providing career development opportunities to ensure women’s progression to leadership and senior management roles, identifying and eliminating gender pay gaps, and accommodating flexible work schedules to improve work-life balance.
We strive to attract and retain exceptional talent through our commitment to fair hiring, training, development, and career advancement practices. NESR is dedicated to creating a collaborative and equitable work environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
Women In NESR
Employee resource groups are powerful tools to influence, build awareness, and bring about positive change in a corporation. They also serve to build strong and diverse work environments. Women serve on NESR’s Board of Directors and make up 37% of our executive team and 25% of the CEO’s direct reports. 15% of our female workforce are in leadership positions.
We are committed to the equitable participation of both men and women in NESR. To expedite reaching our gender diversity goals, we created Women in NESR (WIN). WIN is an employee-driven affinity group that will help the company achieve its gender diversity targets, increase awareness around gender diversity issues and enhance employee engagement.
