Our Commitment to DE&I
We’re not just building a workforce; we’re creating a community where all talents can shine.

We actively seek out candidates from underrepresented backgrounds, employ blind application procedures to mitigate bias, and craft inclusive job descriptions that welcome a wide range of talents without unnecessary constraints.
Nurturing an inclusive culture means cultivating an atmosphere where all employees are esteemed, respected, and empowered to contribute, irrespective of their origins. Our approach encompasses sensitivity training, cultural awareness initiatives, and open dialogues addressing matters of diversity to ensure a harmonious and collaborative work environment.
It’s imperative that every employee enjoys equitable access to opportunities for growth, training, and professional advancement. We are dedicated to implementing programs that identify and rectify any disparities that might exist in these domains.
Furthermore, we hold the belief that compensation and benefits should be just and impartial for all employees, irrespective of demographic distinctions. We’re committed to the principle that fairness is integral in all aspects of our organization.

These efforts reflect our dedication to fostering an inclusive workplace where every team member is valued and provided with equal opportunities for growth and advancement.

The 4 Pillars to DE&I Success
See Salute Employees in Action
Salute Military Community: Kevin Ryan
“As a submariner, I underwent months of rigorous training before stepping aboard my first submarine, and yet, I still felt somewhat unprepared to excel in my role. Through unwavering dedication, lending my assistance whenever possible, and being receptive to the teachings of those around me, I gradually evolved to successfully manage responsibilities beyond my initial expectations. This drive to contribute what I knew and actively learn what I didn’t became a common trait among veterans, all in pursuit of accomplishing a mission. This quality holds immense value within the realm of the business world. “
Salute Military Spouse: Rebecca Thigpen
“My experience as a military spouse has helped me embrace my position. I can connect with other spouses and veterans because I have lived, and am currently living, their lifestyle. “
