Diversity is about the mix of visible and invisible differences between people, such as age, religion, gender, physical ability, character and level of education. In short, diversity is about all the differences between people.
In an inclusive organization, everyone feels at home and every employee has equal access to equal opportunities.
We respect everyone's background
We are not the same, but we are equal. That's one of the first trainings you get when you join de Bijenkorf.
We show genuine interest in each other's feelings and view of the world and act accordingly
Every six months we conduct a short survey to examine whether everyone at de Bijenkorf feels seen and heard.
We also address feelings of inclusion in exit interviews
This is how we learn what we can do better.
We are inspired by our employees and the world around us
Diversity makes our organization more creative, innovative and resilient.
