Diversity and Equality

Gender diversity

We encourage and give the same chances to all genders to work with us and join us as a family member. We focus on gender-neutral job announcements and fair opportunities for all eligible applications to be reviewed.

We aim to realise a zero-tolerance discrimination policy.

We believe that different cultural backgrounds bring the immense opportunity of gathering people together. More diverse thinking makes it easier to think outside the box.

It will enable us to think beyond our past and present and challenge the current status quo. Diversity is one fundamental aspect of our developmental culture.
