Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Being a company with a global footprint carries a responsibility for recognizing and celebrating the
characteristics that make all our people unique and different. We want to create an environment where everyone
feels valued and appreciated because we believe it is through our differences that we find strength in
innovation and a creative spirit that leads to ingenuity and out-of-the-box thinking.
Diverse Global Workforce
Our talented workforce is as diverse as our business presence, being represented on 6 continents in more than 50
countries around the world. We have 3,000+ employees and speak over 30 languages. Each one of us is different,
and brings our own experiences, backgrounds and perspectives to the workplace.
Building Our Bench
Developing and retaining a diverse workforce provides us with a sustained competitive advantage. We recognize
that a diverse mix of backgrounds, skills, and experiences drives new ideas, products, and services and enhances
our ability to partner with each other and with our customers. Through Building Our Bench we have established a
plan to attract, develop, and retain our highly talented workforce that is representative of the regions in
which we operate.
Workplace Diversity and Equal Opportunity
We respect diversity and strive to ensure an equal employment opportunity environment and an environment free of
harassment and discrimination. Our commitment to diversity promotes and fosters attracting and maintaining a
highly diverse and talented workforce without regard to race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion,
creed, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or ancestry, and also without regard to
disability, age, political affiliation, or any other legally protected status.

Core Lab values its employees and is committed to providing resources that engage employees, enhance their work

Management Strategy based on the Employee Life Cycle.
Recruitment – to ensure we have a diverse employee population reflective of our
communities and client base, we’ve implemented recruiting practices that support and encourage the
hiring and retention of diverse talent.
Total Rewards – aligned to our business strategy and country-specific market influences,
we offer competitive compensation and benefit programs in each country where we operate.
Performance Management – our annual Performance Management cycle is an ongoing process
that enables managers and employees to collaborate throughout the year to set performance goals and
development objectives that align to business objectives. This process is designed to help employees

aspirations, and reward employees for high performance.
Development – we believe the success of our organization is built on great people doing
outstanding work in often challenging environments, so we have formalized our commitment to our people and
team’s strategy through the introduction of Employee Development as a core value.
Succession Planning – Core Lab’s commitment to building a strong pipeline of future leaders in
