Fluor Incorporates Diversity and Inclusion.
Fluor uses centralized and decentralized approaches to design and implement its programs and practices. A few examples focused on development include:
Employee Resource Groups
Training & Education
One of Fluor’s top priorities to provide ongoing training and development for both salaried and craft personnel through multiple venues, including Fluor University, the company’s online learning platform. Employees can select from among a wide variety of self-paced, online training courses and have options to sign up for location-specific, instructor-led and virtual courses. Topics range from discipline-specific and targeted learning to general knowledge topics, such as leadership, business acumen and communication skills.
Mentoring Circles Program
Fluor's Mentoring Circles Program gives employees broad exposure to leaders in a team-based setting. Mentors are diversity and inclusion "champions" who help the company foster high levels of employee engagement. While involved in the program, participants have opportunities for informal dialogue, mentoring and learning, with both their mentors and their colleagues.
The program continues to expand across the company, and has been recognized by over the years by external organizations such as the US Equal Opportunity Commission, Fortune Magazine and HR Houston’s IMPACT award organization
Growing Representation & Opportunity for Women (GROW)
Fluor launched GROW as a business imperative to help ensure equal access and opportunity for women, as well as enhance the visibility of female role models within the company.
Through GROW, women and men work together to cultivate opportunities to attract, retain and develop women. Local steering and advisory committees lead each local GROW chapter.
Graduates Advancing to Professionalism
The Graduates Advancing to Professionalism organization aims to assist recent graduates working at Fluor make the transition between the educational and corporate environments by familiarizing them with Fluor’s culture, goals and procedures. The organization also serves as a networking group that offers opportunities for social events and professional training opportunities.
Emerging Leaders Group
The Emerging Leaders Group program is designed to encourage ongoing career development for mid-level professionals who have five to 15 years of industry experience. Local members lead group activities, and members of the management team serve as sponsors. Through both social and professional events, members have opportunities to interact with their peers and upper-level management.
