We strive to make Gore an exciting and rewarding place to work for all associates. One of our fundamental beliefs is that individuals have the opportunity to reach their full potential and that we create an inclusive environment in which all associates are valued for their unique contributions, skills, differences, and talents.
Our freedom principle allows and encourages associates to grow and develop in the direction that best matches their talents and interests with the needs of the business. Our approach to compensation, scope of responsibilities, and opportunities for development and growth are based upon associates’ performance, aptitude, and business need—and not on race, culture, religion, sexual orientation or identity, age, physical ability, family structure, gender, ethnicity, veteran status, or appearance.
To ensure that all associates are aware of and understand our policies, a Human Resources associate acts as the Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Coordinator for each plant location. The Affirmative Action Plan is available through these associates.
Consistent with our culture, we want to foster an environment that enables all associates to maximize their contribution and to be treated fairly. It is crucial that all associates are able to thrive within Gore without feeling threatened or harassed. We want our workplace to be free of tensions created by remarks or animosity linked to race, culture, religion, sexual orientation or identity, age, physical ability, family structure, gender, ethnicity, veteran status, or appearance.
Our goal is to create a positive, respectful workplace in which all associates can feel proud of where they work. Sexual advances, or other conduct of a sexual nature, will not be tolerated. In situations where verbal or physical conduct negatively impacts an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment, we urge associates to notify Human Resources. All inquiries will be investigated and dealt with in a timely and appropriate manner.
We are committed to a drug-free workplace. All employment is contingent upon successful completion of drug and background screening.
