We believe diversity is key in our success. This means we want to embrace and encourage personal skills, talents and different perspectives. Regardless of your gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, physical ability or nationality. We do our best to facilitate an open-minded culture where people are inspired by each other. In our day-to-day work, we deal with complex problems that require innovative solutions. We believe that by embracing diversity of thought and ideas and providing space for new and progressive perspectives, the best solutions come about. In short, diversity is not a goal in itself, but a fundamental way to achieve goals.
We are committed to providing everyone with a safe working environment. Because this is the foundation for personal and professional growth within our company. We encourage conversation on various equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) topics. In addition, we want to connect and inspire. We do this in different ways. Small and big. For instance through internal events for all our employees worldwide or by organising training sessions and workshops (such as unconscious bias training or ethical dilemma discussion sessions). But also by keeping the subject on the agenda internally. For instance, ED&I is included as a fixed agenda item in all company-wide, management team and team meetings and we are changing our internal HR processes by pursuing an active ED&I HR policy.
We have also founded (or have been created bottom-up) internal networks for colleagues with disabilities, LGBTQ+ and diverse ethnic backgrounds. Here, best practices are shared, and awareness is created to better understand each other's experiences.
Throughout the year, we highlight the importance of diversity by organising (inter)national events for all employees (e.g., by celebrating International Women's Day together, or reflecting together on the importance of Speak Up mentality and through our international learning weeks). By doing this, we support our colleagues to create a collaborative, equal environment where everyone feels comfortable to be themselves.
Everyone deserves the same opportunity. Including you. That is what we have developed our policies around. Both when you apply for a job with us, and in your personal and professional development when you are working with us.
We are proud to have begun to overcome the challenges and obstacles in our traditional industry and unlock the power of diversity in our traditional industry and society. We are working towards lasting change, with significant steps and results.
We continue to encourage more women into engineering through initiatives such as recruitment campaigns. We run internal and external campaigns, often around special days such as International Women's Day or International Women in Engineering Day, to share what we do and inspire others.
Enrich our team with your unique perspectives and perspectives and contribute to our mission: Enhancing Society Together.
