We attract, engage and cultivate people who can adapt and thrive in an ever-changing business and technology space. With career development tools, resources and opportunities, we're committed to helping our people learn, grow and excel with rewarding careers.
FIS has a very contemporary and global view on inclusion and diversity. We believe diversity encompasses all the differences that make people unique. It's these differences that inform the way each of us interpret and negotiates the world, and how each of us thinks and approaches problems. Inclusion, on the other hand, is about creating the right environment to unlock the power of diversity. When we think of inclusion at FIS, we think of behaviors that signal that diversity is welcome and that no one is to be discounted or diminished because of their differences. It's about fairness, equal opportunity, respect and trust. Inclusion is embedded in FIS' core values and in our views on corporate responsibility.
Our Strategy, Accountability and Monitoring
At FIS, we believe fostering and cultivating an inclusive and diverse workforce is the responsibility of all our employees. This commitment starts at the very top of our organization with our most senior leaders. From our CEO, Chairman and President, Gary Norcross, who is a signatory of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ to our Chief People Officer, Denise Williams, who speaks out the importance of diversity in our industries, our senior leaders are united in championing inclusion and diversity within our workplace, our marketplace and within our local communities.
Under the guidance of our Global Director of Inclusion & Diversity, we achieve this through systematic and consistent consideration of equality and diversity within FIS planning, including but not limited to our hiring, developmental, remuneration, promotion, transfer, engagement and retention efforts. We regularly review our metrics on the demographics and experiences of our colleagues with respect to these efforts and report them to our senior leadership and Board on an ongoing basis. We further use this information to inform, refine, and drive our inclusion and diversity programs and initiatives to attract, develop, and retain an inclusive and diverse workforce.
Our Inclusion Networks
Inclusion Networks are company-sponsored, colleague-led communities of empowered and determined colleagues who share common interests, backgrounds, or experiences. They are committed to supporting the pursuit of excellence of their respective members while positively impacting FIS, our clients, the FinTech industry and the communities where we serve, live, and work. Further, these groups work in concert with our global Inclusion & Diversity vision to promote the company’s overall mission, goals, and values by focusing on activities and initiatives that foster a visibly inclusive work environment.
Currently, we have inclusion networks that are connected around areas such as gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, working families, and early career – with new groups continuing to emerge and form across the company. Inclusion Networks are open to all colleagues who are interested in participating.
Our inclusion networks provide opportunities for our colleagues to:
Champion inclusion and diversity
Help attract top talent
Shape our culture
Connect and support each other
Develop power skills
Serve as leaders
Drive innovation and collaboration
Engage with our clients and partners
Support and serve our communities
