The provision of an inclusive and collegial working environment is fundamental to our vision and a key ingredient to our business success. When every employee feels valued for their contribution and knows they can progress on the basis of merit and skill, we are able to leverage the full potential of our workforce.
Diversity is not just about valuing differences based on visible characteristics. Factors such as communication style, career path, life experience, educational background and parental status influence personal perspectives and make our people react and think differently, approach challenges and solve problems differently, make suggestions and decisions differently, and see different opportunities.
To us, diversity is fundamentally about diversity of thought and we believe that superior business performance requires tapping into these unique perspectives.
Global Inclusion Month
Diversity benefits our clients and our people; when we bring people together from different backgrounds, cultures and experiences, we attract the best, most talented people, which enables us to bring the best solutions to our clients and make us more competitive in the market.
Our firm is dedicating the month of October to celebrate our diverse and inclusive culture. Offices around the globe will be hosting events throughout the month to unite people from all backgrounds, cultures, experiences and perspectives under the theme Thinking Differently Together. This year’s events include world-renowned speakers, personal stories from our own people, film screenings, social events, and many more activities.
