We believe that all employees—and all people—should be treated fairly and with respect. We are proud of the diversity of our global workforce—more than 14,000 full-time and part-time employees, spanning over 30 countries and speaking more than 60 languages. We encourage our employees to share their unique perspectives and abilities. Through each stage of employment, from recruiting to retention to career development, we aim to strengthen our culture of inclusion and respect. We are active in our support for equal employment opportunities and the elimination of discrimination and unconscious bias. We also work to communicate our culture of inclusion to our customers through our advertising.
We particularly focus on issues pertaining to women, the LGBTQ community, cross-cultural fluency and communities of color, with a particular focus on the U.S. Our efforts to advance diversity and inclusion focus on strategies for Talent, Engagement, Learning and Leadership:
- Talent: The variety of people and ideas contributed to our organization and the total benefits we offer.
- Engagement: The ways we foster employee participation and commitment.
- Learning: Our efforts to create a common understanding of how to mitigate bias and be inclusive every day.
- Leadership: How we raise awareness and drive accountability through what we say, what we do and how we operate.
We encourage our employees to connect, learn and speak openly about ideas related to identity as well as celebrate each other’s differences and accomplishments. These efforts are aimed at building a sense of belonging and inclusion to strengthen our employee community and increase the diversity of our Company.
