Our commitment to greater diversity

Our commitment to greater diversity

Diversity means life, reality – and is an absolute must for innovation and competitiveness.

Thus, there is no alternative. The complex challenges of our time can no longer be solved in our own information bubble. On the contrary: the more perspectives, experiences and cultural backgrounds are integrated in innovation and decision-making processes, the better the results.

As a company whose business model will shape tomorrow’s world of work, it is therefore important for us to set an example and promote diversity in all its facets. For this purpose, we focus on equal opportunities – both internally and externally.

This means: we assess our employees as well as our candidates on the basis of their performance and behaviour – not on the basis of their gender, age, ethnic background, religion, state of health, social background or sexuality!

Diversity Management

Diversity is not a self-runner

Diversity is a cultural issue and cannot simply be imposed on people. Therefore, there are a few things to consider when introducing diversity management.

Diversity – more than colourful programmes

A modern approach to diversity: changing old career patterns and creating individual career concepts.

Hays certified by the Women's Career Index for the second time

We are delighted to have achieved an above-average improvement of 20% and a top-ranking position in the upper-middle range of the certified companies.

To what extent does a company promote women's careers? In the case of Hays, this has now been assessed for the second time by the independent Women's Career Index (FKi) – with gratifying results: the index score rose from 65 to 78 index points, i.e. an increase of 20% compared to the first evaluation in 2018. Michaela Jaap, Head of Diversity & Inclusion at Hays, is pleased: “With this result, we are ranking in the upper-middle range of all companies certified”, she says. The sub-indices “commitment” and “framework conditions”, which are prerequisites for more women in management positions, were rated particularly positively. “We have established a solid foundation which we can now build upon with full commitment”, adds Michaela Jaap.

“Striving for diversity is a pressing need of our time: we live and work in a world in transition in which monocultures and one-sided perspectives no longer work. My goal is therefore to embed diversity not only in our corporate structures, but also in the mindset of all employees and in our corporate culture.”
