Diversity @ ABG

From our inception, we have been passionate about providing our employees, customers and members with the very best experiences. It is our rich diversity of backgrounds, cultures and viewpoints that supports this passion, drives our success and ensures we live up to our full potential.

As an equal-opportunity employer, we are proud to provide an inclusive workplace that embraces and celebrates demographic, cultural and lifestyle differences. We maintain a significantly diverse employee population in the United States; We are proud that 58% of our employees are diverse, and women comprise 35% of our total workforce. In addition, 32% of management are women and 30% are diverse and we continually look to improve our diversity.

Employee Resource Groups

A key component of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion is our motivation
to improve diverse representation across all functions in the business. Our #PowerofWOMEN initiative has ambitious aims to create sustainable and impactful results in our workplaces and communities, and is designed to recognize, celebrate, develop and support women of all levels across the globe.

#PowerofVETERANS is an employee-led, long term initiative that will create, support and drive topics and initiatives that are relevant to the needs of current and former servicemen and servicewomen with the goal of creating impactful and sustained results, both at ABG and in the communities in which we live and operate. #PowerofVETERANS will lay a sustainable foundation for our efforts to build a culture that recognizes and appreciates the contributions of our veterans and active-duty reservists and supports their needs, as well as the needs of their spouses and family members.

But we will not stop there. Our objective is to forge a global environment where all employees feel empowered to reach their full potential, and we are currently working on many exciting projects that will ensure we reach this goal.

Supporting Our Veterans and Military Families

In addition to our #PowerofVETERANS resource group, we are committed to hiring veterans and providing them with opportunities to work for a company that honors their service and supports their transition back into the workforce. We understand and appreciate the unique skillset that veterans bring to our company and are humbled when they choose to bring these talents to our team. We have former military staff working within all levels of the organization, and have won numerous awards for our efforts to recruit and support veterans. Some of our initiatives include advertising job openings on veteran job boards, participating in physical and virtual veteran recruiting events, prioritizing veteran applications, and training our recruiters on how to support the unique needs of veterans throughout the hiring process.

We are proud to be recognized as a Military Friendly®Employer and a Military Friendly® Spouse Employer.

Recruitment

Our talent strategy is solidly rooted in attracting and retaining a diverse workforce. We run
scores of recruitment programs that aim to give back to our local communities by reaching
out to diverse, underrepresented and minority groups.

Our methods of recruiting are as diverse as the groups we seek to reach and engage. We
understand there are many ways to find and apply for job vacancies, so we utilize methods to
make our vacancies as accessible as possible. We coach, support, encourage and enable everyone to feel empowered to realize their potential and understand how their skills, experiences and training can be transferred to a variety of roles. We want people to view us as a company they can flourish with and make an impact to our success.
