Human Resources & Hiring Practices
The Human Resources department (HR) of Calista Corporation —the parent company of STG Incorporated— oversees hiring for all subsidiaries. Calista Corporation also manages internships and the Talent Bank Program.
Native Preference and Equal Opportunity
Pursuant to the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act (ANCSA) of 1971, and its amendments and as may be provided for and allowed by the Indian Self-Determination Act of 1974, P.L. 93-638, and in accordance with Title 43 U.S. Code 1626(g) and Title 42 U.S. Code 2003-2(i) and other state and federal laws, the Company maintains a hiring preference for Calista shareholders and their descendants and spouses.
In all other respects, our policy is to select, place, train, and promote the best qualified individuals based upon relevant factors such as work quality, attitude, and experience, so as to provide equal employment opportunity for all our employees in compliance with applicable local, state and federal laws and without regard to nonworking related factors such as race, color, religion/creed, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, citizenship or other protected status. When applicable, our policy of non-discrimination applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including but not limited to, recruiting, hiring, training, transfers, promotions, placement, compensation, termination, reduction in force and benefits.
Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace
The object of Calista’s Alcohol and Drug Policy is to provide a safe, healthy, and productive workplace for all employees, to comply with federal and state health and safety regulations, and to prevent accidents. All employees of Calista Corporation and its subsidiaries, whether temporary, contract, regular, part time, or full time are subject to this policy. As set forth by Calista, the Calista Board of Directors and our subsidiaries have a very strict no-tolerance drug and alcohol policy.
Calista policy also requires a background check on all potential hires. When determining whether a candidate passes the background checks, HR looks at the conviction(s) and considers how long ago it occurred, the severity and number of the offenses, and what position the applicant would be filling.
