We live diversity, equity and inclusion

With the revision of the Diversity Policy, the focus has expanded from gender diversity to include other dimensions such as health conditions and sexual orientations.

We completely revised our Diversity Policy in 2021 to roll it out across the Group and benchmark ourselves against it. It fosters the values diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) in every decision and action we take at all levels in our company. Promoting DE&I isn’t just the right thing to do, but also a smart thing to do as also our customers, current and future employees and partners are diverse. Therefore, increasing the share of underrepresented communities in our leadership and employee status and cultivating a culture of belonging where everyone feels empowered to live up to their full potential is directly impacting the success of our company as a global service provider and employer.
