Diversity and inclusion index in our employee engagement survey
In addition to our Group objective focused on achieving gender diversity, we have established key performance indicators (KPIs) dedicated to fostering inclusion. As our Group diversity and inclusion statement shares, we believe that the more unique perspectives we embrace, the more innovative we are. The KPIs in relation to inclusion are meticulously monitored through our comprehensive employee engagement survey, enabling us to gauge the effectiveness of our initiatives.
We recognize that the true benefits of our diverse workforce are realized when every team member experiences a sense of being genuinely appreciated and esteemed. Across all our Business Areas, we are committed to implementing educational and training initiatives designed to enhance awareness and cultivate the attitudes essential for nurturing an inclusive organizational culture.
LGBTQ+ inclusion in Vacuum Technique Business Area
Employee networks bring employees together based on a shared identity or experience and arrange events, discuss issues, raise awareness and advocate for change. By providing a space for employees to come together and discuss their experiences, network groups can be a powerful tool in fostering a sense of inclusion. And by arranging events and exchanging information, they can increase understanding among different groups within the organization.
This is how Fusion, an LGBTQ+ network was launched within the Vacuum Technique Business Area in 2021.
