By fostering inclusiveness, welcoming diverse perspectives and empowering our people, PPG becomes more innovative, productive and competitive.
Our 2017 injury and illness rate was the lowest in our history, and 70 percent of our locations with 50 or more employees had a wellness program.
In follow-up to our latest “Your Say” employee survey, we continued to drive improvement in employee engagement throughout 2017. We also introduced an engagement coaching program to facilitate coaching, mentoring and sharing of best practices.
Our numerous diversity councils continued to make our workplaces more diverse and inclusive in 2017, and our chief executive officer signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ pledge. We were recognized for our efforts with a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2018 Corporate Equality Index.
We created a new vision and strategy for learning and development during this year, which has enabled us to provide an even sharper focus on our areas of need to drive the company forward and ensure engagement of our people.
