Diversity and inclusion at PayFit

Our commitment

We are committed to a culture of diversity and inclusion

Our mission at PayFit is to ensure that every employee feels included and valued so that work is a source of fulfilment for everyone.

Our aim is to create a welcoming work environment for every member of our team.

We believe diversity and inclusion truly embodies our 4 core values.

We want to diversify our talents, profiles, and life experiences to enrich ourselves collectively.

The scope of our commitment

Launching a D&I policy is a broad topic. Therefore, we have chosen to focus on three areas to have a strong and rapid impact on these key issues.

Eventually, we will enrich this policy with new themes in order to broaden the scope of our commitments.

Gender equality
Academic background diversity
Disability

Our plan of action is based on 2 pillars

We make it a point to honour diversity in our recruitment and give equal opportunities to everyone to represent the society in which we operate.
Our recruiters and managers are all trained on the biases that can occur in recruitment.

We implement awareness-raising actions via e-learning for all our employees as soon as they join the company. We have introduced partner leave rather than paternity leave to give equal rights to same-sex parents.
