At Bloomberg, diversity and inclusion aren’t afterthoughts. They’re central to our success. Innovation drives our business forward – and we know that disruptive, breakthrough ideas come about when diverse teams look at challenges from different angles. Our culture values difference, fosters inclusion and promotes collaboration, because the data shows us that when every employee is empowered to impact our business, we all win.
At Bloomberg, diversity and inclusion are an intrinsic part of who we are. We strive for excellence in everything we do, so naturally we strive for excellence on Diversity and Inclusion — we see it infiltrating every aspect of the way we operate.
But our work at Bloomberg goes far beyond our four walls. Every employee knows that when they are working hard to make our business a success, they are also having a positive impact on the world, including making society a more inclusive space
At Bloomberg, we respect and admire our employees’ service and appreciate that our own values – like innovation, collaboration, and doing the right thing – are equally valued within the military and veteran community. Here, veterans working in Bloomberg offices in the U.S. and the UK share those aligned values, what drew them to military life, the transition to the corporate world, and how that experience has influenced their current roles.
Serving in the military taught me many life lessons and ingrained many essential values that I would carry into civilian life. The two that immediately come to mind are teamwork and discipline. These values were instrumental in shaping my career when I started at Bloomberg in 1990, and are probably the cornerstone values that have contributed the most to the company’s success. – Ossie Munroe, Air Force, Sergeant, Production Specialist, 4yrs/ Business Information Security Officer at Bloomberg
The need for clear communication, an orderly approach and teamwork were the essential lessons I took from my time in the military. It’s very easy to fail at any task if the objective is not clear; it’s approached in a disorderly fashion and team members are not aligned in execution. – Nicholas Bean, H.M. Forces, British Army, Royal Corps of Signals / Head, Cross-Asset Electronic Trading Solutions at Bloomberg
It starts with how we hire
Diverse teams make smarter decisions, but they don’t make themselves. We actively recruit and nurture talent that adds diversity to our workplace — finding the best and brightest whoever and wherever they are.
