Our corporate culture is characterized by respect and appreciation and by mutually accepting each other. Women and men of the most diverse national, ethical, religious, and personal backgrounds, as well as people with disabilities and different sexual orientations work for the HDI Group. It is just this diversity which makes our group so successful. For it is with their very own character, their competencies and great ambitions that each one with us contributes towards achieving our common goals. To us, diversity management therefore means to consciously support diversity among our employees and to reach as many different potential applicants as possible. Below you will find out how we do this!
It was already in 2013, that the HDI Group signed the „Charta of Diversity“, a corporate initiative to promote diversity in the economy.
The Charta of Diversity is a corporate initiative supported by the Federal Government to promote diversity in companies and institutions. The initiative aims to promote the recognition, appreciation, and integration of diversity in the business culture in Germany. Organizations are called upon to create a working environment free of prejudices. All employees shall receive appreciation – no matter what their sex, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or philosophy of life, disability, age, sexual orientation, and identity.
The Charta of Diversity was founded in December 2006. The HDI Group is among the approx. 3,000 companies and public institutions in Germany with a total of 10.4 million employees that within the scope of the Charta of Diversity have committed to create a working environment free of prejudices and differentiations.

In order for this to be successful, we support our female colleagues in managing their career with a great number of measures, e.g.:
For us, active diversity management means to deliberately promote the diversity and potentials among our employees, to create corresponding framework conditions and to live a corporate culture which is based on our corporate values and characterized by openness, appreciation, and integration.
In our diversity management, our focus is on the action fields of gender, demography, and internationality. Here, we have already achieved a great deal over the past few years which we can be proud of!
A not inconsiderable part of our workforce will withdraw from their active working life within the next ten years. Yet we want to keep the know-how and experience of our experts and to specifically pass it on to our younger employees.
Therefore, we promote the „learning from each other“of the generations. With us, mixed teams of experienced colleagues and job starters work together. Thus, we provide for a deliberate exchange of experience and transfer of knowledge in all directions.
We support our employees in their personal family situation with various offers to enable them to harmonize their private and working life, e.g. by:
