“CHARTA DER VIELFALT”
Carlos Frischmuth, Managing Director and Michaela Jaap, Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Hays
Signatories are committed to diversity in the world of work and a working environment free of prejudice
Hays has signed the “Charta der Vielfalt”, a corporate initiative to promote diversity in companies and institutions. By signing this diversity charter, we commit ourselves to creating a working environment that is free of prejudice and become part of the largest network for diversity management in Germany.
“We live and work in times of change, in which diversity is a key driver of innovation”, explains Michaela Jaap, Head of Diversity & Inclusion. “By relying on different competencies, ideas and perspectives, a company strengthens its innovative power and competitiveness and positions itself as an open and sustainable partner to its various stakeholders.”
Established in 2006 at the Federal Chancellery, the “Charta der Vielfalt” was initiated by four companies (Deutsche Bank, Daimler, Deutsche Telekom and BP Germany). Since 2010, the non-profit association Charta der Vielfalt e.V. has been supporting this initiative under the patronage of German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
