Employee engagement and development:

  • Maxar regularly seeks employee input through engagement surveys and pulse surveys, the results of which are shared by the CEO and the executive leadership team and communicated throughout the organization. Employee engagement exceeds technology benchmarks.
  • In 2020, we evolved our performance assessment from an annual performance review to a process of real-time feedback and quarterly check-ins between managers and employees.
  • Lifelong learning and professional development is encouraged at Maxar with:
    • Student loan repayment and tuition reimbursement benefits
    • Self-guided study through LinkedIn Learning
    • Formal, structured executive and management leadership programs.

Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

  • A diversity, inclusion and belonging (DIB) executive steering committee was formed in 2020 to accelerate awareness, understanding and action around diversity and inclusion at Maxar and beyond. The committee was started by listening to employee concerns and identified ideas, tools and resources for change at all levels of the organization. 
  • Maxar’s DIB strategy supports numerous employee resource groups including those for women, Black and African Americans, Hispanic/Latinx employees, LGBTQ+ employees, differing abilities and veterans.
