Our approach to diversity is simple—it’s about embracing everyone. From building a culture where all employees can bring their best selves to work to deploying diversity initiatives that support everyone, we’re doing what it takes to build an inclusive world for all. Our commitment to building a more equitable world shines through in our everyday practices. We hire and develop a diverse workforce, cultivate our employee-first culture, shape corporate policies, and invest in underrepresented communities around the world—and we’re just getting started.
Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace has become a key focus for businesses as organisations understand the positive impact it delivers to the business and employees; greater profitability and productivity in the workplace and stronger employee engagement.
At Workday, we believe that employee diversity – which includes gender, but also different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, insights, and skills – fuels innovation, and creates a broader connection to the world. Diversity enables better decision-making, more creativity, and better business outcomes, and at Workday, we believe that women play an important part in that.
We believe that belonging happens when we connect with our communities. Through our Employee Belonging Councils (EBCs), employee alliances focused on engaging with underrepresented communities, we’re doing just that. Workday uses data to support Diversity. A Workday-powered dashboard with data about the workforce, including gender, ethnicity, age, veteran status, and other dimensions of diversity — which lets her monitor pay equity, time-to-promotion, and turnover.
