At Cisco, we see inclusion as a bridge—a way to connect diverse perspectives. To spark new ideas, explore new possibilities, tap into the power of digital transformation, and inspire innovation.
We’re inventing new ways to multiply the power of our people and developing innovative solutions to some of our most business-critical challenges and opportunities. We’re expanding our commitment to fair pay. Accelerating our diverse talent. Investing in our emerging diverse leaders. Creating new realms of inclusion through technology, as seen in our Cisco LifeChanger and Connected Health and Education programs. Partnering across the globe to multiply our impact. And taking a stand for social justice throughout our communities.
Building Trusted Environments
Cisco has always been committed to paying our people fairly and equitably. We’ve recently built an innovative and inclusive framework that introduces powerful analytics to evaluate our complex compensation system and its overall health. These innovations help build the trusted environment that drives the best teams, allows us to retain the best talent, and positions Cisco as a top employer.
Our reviews include taking a look at all factors that influence an equitable talent environment, from new hire offers to individual rewards, so that we can continue to design and deliver fair, inclusive, and competitive pay for our people. To date, our regular reviews have revealed a healthy global compensation system and only minor disparities within approximately 1 percent of our global employee population.
Capture the power of connection
Our culture of inclusion is fueled by a thriving Inclusion and Collaboration (I&C) Community – a platform for diverse groups to connect, build powerful new relationships, explore their unique passions and talents, innovate, and excel. In 196 chapters across 44 countries, our I&C Community has over 25,000 active members participating in Employee Resource Organizations, Networks, Virtual Groups, Inclusion Leadership Teams, and the annual flagship event known as Women of Impact.
Our I&C Community is doing amazing things – from expanding awareness around hidden disabilities to paying tribute to Fallen Heroes. From standing for unity, to inspiring at-risk students to seek higher education, to leading courageous conversations that break down barriers and accelerate diversity. Together, we’re transforming our company, our communities, and the world.
