Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
At Transcat we value diversity of backgrounds, cultures and views and believe that every person deserves equal opportunity and treatment. Diversity drives innovation and is at the forefront of our continued success and growth. Transcat is committed to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of the business.
On the Board level, our corporate governance and nominating committee continues to emphasize diversity in its director recruitment efforts.
With our international presence, we strive to maintain a diverse workforce and inclusive work environment everywhere along with recognizing and respecting our employees’ backgrounds and experiences. We recruit the best people for the job without regard to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or any other protected status. It is our policy to comply fully with all domestic, foreign, and local non-discrimination employment laws.
Our diversity and inclusion principles are also reflected in our employee training, in particular with respect to our policies against harassment and bullying and the elimination of bias in the workplace. In addition, to support our employees’ mental health and emotional well-being, all employees and their dependents worldwide have access to an Employee Assistance Program at no cost to them. This includes access to visits with mental health care providers.
Transcat has created employment and educational opportunities in the communities we are located in the form of a Diversity Scholarship. Our Diversity Scholarship welcomes, celebrates, and promotes diversity across the company. Transcat’s Diversity Scholarship provides an award to be used towards the recipient's higher education tuition and an eight-week paid summer position as a Technician Trainee. This scholarship is awarded to two individuals based on their academic records, accomplishments, professional goals, and other factors that indicate promise for a successful career in the calibration industry.
