At QHS, diversity means that the Company recognizes, accepts, and values the differences among its Associates. Diversity covers our Associates as well as the customers and communities we serve. It encompasses a spirit of inclusiveness. By acknowledging differences, the organization can create an environment in which people with diverse backgrounds can better work together and share a core of common values: honesty, integrity, hard work, and mutual respect. By valuing differences, QHS recognizes the distinct and unique contributions and perspectives that each Associate brings to the Company.
QHS is committed to finding the highest caliber Associates and to providing a work environment in which all persons regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, personal appearance, gender identity or expression, familial status, family responsibilities, genetic information, ancestry, or military status or otherwise provided by applicable law can develop and contribute. Besides complying with the law, it is simply good business sense to apply the principle of equal opportunity in all Company policies, procedures and practices.
All Associates are required to support and comply with the Company’s equal opportunity and nondiscrimination policies. Associates are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that shows the respect we have for each other and the value we place on diversity and civility in our place of work. We observe these policies in all we do and take them seriously.
