What kind of company do we want to work for? This simple question caused quite a stir at adesso. We took a look at how we’re doing in terms of diversity, equality and inclusion – things that should actually be self-evident. But we realised that at adesso – just like in our society as a whole – we’re still a long way from achieving these goals. We fall into learned patterns of behaviour too often – be it consciously or unconsciously. As a result, we make decisions or organise processes with the best of intentions. And yet, unintentionally, we contribute to propping up the status quo. In doing so, factors such as nationality or ethnicity, gender, age, sexual identity and orientation, religion, world view, disability, etc. must not play a role. The focus must be on the individual person and their individual traits.
We’re confronting these issues. This is simply an imperative of respectful, human interaction. This is an economically relevant issue as well. The broader adesso’s foundation is, the better the offers, projects and services that build on it will be. We can only create this basis if we integrate different talents, experiences, perspectives, backgrounds, cultures and identities. A more diverse workforce is a valuable asset for us.
This is a process, not a project. These pages do not contain the final result of our initiatives, but merely a preliminary result that drives us to continue working on our initiatives day by day.
