Women in Manufacturing 2022
March 22, 2022 at
As an industry leader in the windows and doors business in Canada, JELD-WEN® understands the importance of diversity and inclusion. Today, JELD-WEN employs approximately 21,000 people worldwide. We have manufacturing, distribution, and showroom locations across Canada as well as in 24 countries, located primarily in North America, Europe, and Australia.
At JELD-WEN, we do much more than manufacture windows and doors. Our products bring beauty and security to the spaces that touch our lives. We believe a great company is one that employees want to work for, customers want to buy from, and investors want to invest in. We are dedicated to operating our business ethically, safely, and with consideration for our associates, communities, and the environment.
We commit to acting with integrity and respect, investing in our people, inspiring customers through innovation, delivering on our promises, and improving every day. All our core values are integral to sustainable company performance and impact.
JELD-WEN is proud to have a good ratio of females in leadership positions. In Canada, two out of six members of the senior leadership team are women, three out of six plants have women in top operational positions, two out of three managers in finance are female, two out of 5 managers in marketing are female. This trend is present throughout almost all departments within our organization featuring many women in management and leadership positions. The manufacturing industry tends to be male-dominated, but at JELD-WEN, we believe that cultivating a diverse workforce is a competitive advantage. We strive to create an environment where every individual can unleash their full potential, feel included, and have their voices heard.
As one global team, JELD-WEN is committed to #BreakTheBias in the manufacturing industry!
