INCLUDE everyone. EXCLUDE no one.
At IBM, we value differences. Together we can do more than any one of us can do alone to reach our ultimate goal of satisfying our diverse customers and building a world without boundaries. One of our core values is innovation and difference drives innovation.
But our commitment to diversity isn't new. Our inclusive ethos has its foundation in the very roots of our company, over a century ago, when the first female and black employees were welcomed into our company back in 1899. We've championed equality way ahead of any legislation.
Our outstanding record speaks for itself. From being number one in the highly respected Stonewall's Equality Index in 2007; to winning the Greatest Contribution to Diversity in Graduate Recruitment at the prestigious 2007 Target Awards; and winning the 'First Women Corporate Award' in 2008, for the one organisation to have made an extraordinary contribution to women's role in the workforce - IBM values difference.
What makes IBM work? Undoubtedly, our people. Our human resource is our number one priority, the driver of change that shapes our organisation. In fact, our corporation is our employees. No wonder we care about them. No face is wrong for our frame; we include everyone and exclude no one. Just see for yourself...
