Template - EPCA press coverage


EPCA published the third report in its ongoing series on Talent & Diversity (since 2016), “Age Inclusion and Diversity”. This report summarizes the findings of a study conducted in 2017 and early 2018, in cooperation with Mark Wolstenholme, Executive Director at EY along with his team, on behalf of the EPCA Talent and Diversity Inclusion Council (TDIC). The report complements the work done since 2015 on the different facets of diversity and inclusion in the petrochemical sector. Based on the surveys and interviews conducted, the report provides the reader with statistics and data to illustrate the current and projected status of generational diversity within the sector while diving deeper into five key age diversity related themes; each being illustrated with relevant initiatives established by EPCA member companies. The report shows that age inclusion and diversity may represent a challenge for the petrochemical industry but, if appropriately addressed, also represents a significant opportunity for organisations to fully leverage the available talent, to ensure career satisfaction across generations and to renew the employee value proposition.
