Diversity & inclusion
Our ambition is to be a great workplace for all our employees. Being a diverse and inclusive company takes consistent effort, and there is always room to improve. That is why we have a dedicated diversity and inclusion team. One of our partners provides the team with guidance. Seven employees form the core task force, while six sub teams focus on improvements in specific areas, such as awareness and gender diversity in leadership positions.
An ability to understand differences in behavior and personality traits is key to great teamwork. So, as part of their onboarding program, we train new co-workers to use the DISC tool, which provides useful insights into people’s different behavioral styles and the ways in which these affect collaboration. During the training, we also provide them with practical tips and tricks they can apply on a daily basis.
Our mission is to raise awareness of diversity and inspire people by bringing in new perspectives. Every few months, we organize a company-wide session on diversity and inclusion. We invite external speakers to inspire us and create room for discussion among co-workers. Examples of themes we addressed in these sessions are contemporary leadership, gender stereotypes, and biases and implicit associations.
In our reverse mentoring program, groups of five female co-workers mentor one of the partners. The program facilitates an impactful dialogue on diversity and inclusion. To create more diversity at the top of the organization, partners coach female managers and directors on developing leadership skills.
