Bratislava – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has joined fifty other signatory companies operating in the Slovak Republic in signing the Diversity Charter of the Slovak Republic. In a first, the signing ceremony took place online. The Diversity Charter is a voluntary initiative by companies and organizations to promote diversity in the workplace. It is supported by the European Commission via the EU Platform of Diversity Charters, which supports the dissemination and sharing of principles, good practice and experience on diversity management in EU countries.
“For ESET, as a technology company, a central tenet of diversity and CSR activities is strengthening the representation of women and girls in IT, not only for the company itself, but for the entire sector as a whole. By signing the Diversity Charter of the Slovak Republic, we want to demonstrate that ESET takes inclusion and diversity seriously and that it is a matter of principle for us,” said Lucia Marková, ESET’s CSR Manager, at the signing of the Diversity Charter.
Membership in this initiative is open to all companies and organizations that are aware of the importance of equal treatment, inclusion and diversity in the workplace. The signatories agree with the content of the Diversity Charter of the Slovak Republic and subscribe to the following principles:
- Voluntarily integrate into the life of the company a set of principles and procedures that take into account diversity and an inclusive approach in the workplace.
- Build a relationship toward employees based on these principles and raise awareness of diversity issues at the management level.
- Inspire other companies operating in Slovakia and spread awareness of the benefits arising from the implementation of a policy of diversity.
“We work hard at creating a respectful environment in which all our employees feel welcome, without distinction. We promote diversity in the workplace very naturally; on our part, we mainly focus on a receptive and individual approach, not on statistics. We also pay serious attention to the approach we’ve taken to promote mental health at work, a very current topic that underlies the success of any and all employees,” concludes Daniela Škripková, Chief HR Officer at ESET.
