Our Commitment to Employment Equity

C-CORE believes in a corporate culture of equality and fairness in the workplace.  In maintaining this culture, C-CORE is committed to creating a level playing field in the workplace and equal opportunity by reducing or removing barriers in the workplace that accidentally or intentionally create conditions of disadvantage in employment experienced by for example: gender, age, marital status, ethnic origin, religious belief, sexual orientation, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities.

Employment equity means more than treating persons the same way, it requires special measures and the accommodation of differences.  In seeking to hire the most qualified person for any available position, C-CORE is committed to ensuring that its employment processes and practices do not unfairly impede or discriminate against any particular group or person, and that no individual is denied employment opportunities or benefits for reasons unrelated to skill, ability and/or efficiency.
