Diversity and Inclusion
Linde operates in more than 100 countries where diverse talent, customers and ways of working influence business priorities and demand different leadership capabilities. Our business imperative is based on the diversity of our global markets, talent pool and customer base, as well as the imperative to attract new ideas and solutions to enhance innovation.
At Linde, we strive to create a work environment that treats all employees with respect, supports new thoughts and ideas, encourages growth and development, recognizes our differences, and embraces inclusion. Linde is also committed to partnering with others to help ensure that we remain an employer of choice for the ever-increasing pool of diverse global talent.
Diversity is the full range of differences that define all people including our employees, customers and suppliers. It includes factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, geography, religion, occupational skill, education and language.
Inclusion is the active process to welcome and include diverse perspectives, experiences and backgrounds in our company, which is critically important to employee engagement, contribution and performance.
