Diversity and Inclusion
At Simitri Group International, we are committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.
The strength of our human capital and the diversity of our consultants are without a doubt the most valuable assets that we have. The very nature of our business requires that we hire and develop consultants who are broadly representative of the various ethnic, linguistic, and cultural groups of the countries in which we operate. This is key to ensuring that our learning solutions address the human-centred challenges that our global clients face. Our diversity allows us to provide the local business and cultural knowledge needed to help our clients solve complex communication and leadership problems and to achieve better business results in local markets.
Going far beyond hiring local talent, we embrace and encourage employee differences in age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, language, national origin, political affiliation, religion, disability, and veteran status. We firmly believe that these characteristics are what make each of our employees unique, and that feeling valued and included as a member of the Simitri family are key to employee success, both personally and professionally.
Simitri’s diversity initiatives include, but are not limited to, policies on recruitment and selection, compensation and benefits, professional development, promotions, terminations, and the active development of a work environment that is built on equity and shared opportunity.
All Simitri employees are expected to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. Any employees found to have exhibited inappropriate conduct or behaviour against others will be subject to disciplinary action. Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination can seek assistance from a supervisor or partner. With leadership on diversity coming from the top, Simitri employees should feel comfortable sharing thoughts and feedback about discrimination and improving Simitri’s policies and practices – even directing any concerns to the most senior levels of the organisation. We welcome and encourage this feedback.
