Retention, Development & Diversity

In addition to our commitment to keeping employees safe, we are dedicated to providing employees what they need to succeed in their careers. We recognize the value each employee brings to our business and how the diversity in background and skill sets benefits the company.

We understand that employees have a choice of where they work, and it is our goal to remain an employer that attracts and retains top talent. We depend on the broad range of skill sets and experiences from our approximately 4,500 employees around the world to be successful as a business and advance on our sustainability journey. At the same time, we seek diverse candidates for all positions, and are committed to celebrating the diversity of all Cabot employees and supporting them in realizing successful careers. To do so, we have deployed practices that help ensure all employees are treated fairly and equally by providing competitive benefits and professional development programs.

We believe our employees are our best asset, and we endeavor to provide a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming workplace. Our commitment to retention, diversity, and development drives us to expand and refine our programs in support of our 2025 goals. These goals include the following objectives for retention, diversity, and development:

- Fostering an environment where employees report high levels of inclusion and support for their professional development

- Increasing diverse representation in leadership and professional roles

We continue to evolve our practices and advance our efforts in order to meet our goals and advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
