Visteon values diversity and everything it embodies. For Visteon, diversity represents an environment of open communication where the contributions of all employees are valued. Visteon believes that a diverse business is built on the foundation of inclusion, respect, acceptance and learning. The attributes that make us unique individuals – culture, ethnicity, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, nationality, education, life experience and beliefs – allow us to provide each other with insights that may not otherwise be realized. As a multicultural organization, Visteon embraces human differences and harnesses the power of its employees’ varied backgrounds, cultures and experiences to create a competitive edge.
Visteon's global mission for diversity is to provide a business environment that:
There is a strong business case for organizations that appreciate and manage diversity. It is based on demographic changes in the workforce and a global customer base. Additionally, diverse organizations gain the opportunity to benefit from improved talent retention and increased productivity.
We believe that all individuals can benefit by working in a more inclusive environment. Valuing diversity also creates better working relationships with suppliers, customers and communities. Sharing and capitalizing on diverse perspectives generally results in better idea generation, more thoughtful dialogue and, ultimately, premier products.
Visteon will succeed through the full engagement of the diverse talents of all its employees. Visteon's diversity mission is supported by our Employee Resource Groups and a commitment to work-life balance.
