Our employees come from 117 countries and form an open and diverse workforce.
We believe our teams should reflect both the global nature of our business and the diversity of our customers, giving us the experience to explore new markets in an unbiased, open and intelligent way.
Our diversity strategy means fair and equal employment and career development practices. It means acceptance, respect and understanding – for both colleagues and customers. It also gives us a global vision, since our employees work in collaboration with talents from diverse backgrounds, whether in terms of age, nationality, education, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or religion. It is through fostering diversity that we create a platform where our employees can demonstrate their full potential to exceed our customers' expectations.
In 2015, women represented 41% of newly recruited staff, and 30% of Gemalto's professional workforce. We also recruited close to 1,200 people across 52 countries for exempt positions, representing 14% of our entire exempt workforce.
