We are committed to developing a diverse and enabled workforce from the widest talent pools and promote equal opportunities for all. At Fujitsu, we relentlessly endeavour to engage, enable and develop our people.
We have a family of four inclusion network groups: Women at Fujitsu, Shine LGBT+, SEED (Supporting and Engaging Employees with Disabilities) and Cultural Diversity Network. Fujitsu’s female employees have important leadership positions: 21% of Fujitsu’s leadership team in UK and Ireland are women, compared to an industry average of 18% for large technology companies. In Ireland, where women represent 30% of the workforce, the company is led by a leadership team where a third of the members are women.
Locally in Ireland, we have several initiatives promoting Diversity and Inclusion. We have launched a Women’s Business Network to:
‘Diversity’ is about all those things that make us who we are: the rich mix of visible and non-visible differences that exists within our workforce. This encompasses age, caring responsibilities, disability, education, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or belief, sexual orientation, social status, working style and many other personal characteristics.
‘Inclusion’ means creating a collaborative environment that is open to different ideas, perspectives and styles of thinking where all our people feel they can be completely themselves. We can only harness the benefits of diversity – what we call ‘Empowering Human Difference’ – in an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute fully to the Company’s success.
Being a Responsible Business means creating the right conditions for inclusion to be real.
Vision: To be recognised as a responsible business that reflects the diversity of our customers and where all our people can be completely themselves and succeed.
Mission: We will be ambitious and innovative in integrating diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our business to enhance agility, innovation, productivity, decision-making and customer relationships.
To measure our performance on Diversity & Inclusion, we monitor a wide range of metrics. We have also set a series of ambitious targets, which are set out below. The Responsible Business Board reviews our progress towards these targets on a quarterly basis.
Fujitsu has a family of four active diversity and inclusion networks which influence and support our efforts to become a more diverse and inclusive organisation:
The Networks are inclusive groups and open to all employees with an interest in these areas. Each network has a passionate Executive Sponsor who supports the development of the group and champions their work at the most senior levels. The D&I Networks work closely with each other and the business to drive the diversity and inclusion agenda. They play a significant role in creating a better experience for our people, our customers and our partners.
The Fujitsu Ireland team is delighted to have secured a three year reaccreditation of the Business Working Responsibility Mark with Business in the Community. This follows a previous two year accreditation. This award is based on the ISO 26000 which is an international sustainability standard companies use to achieve their mission and vision. This involved answering a comprehensive questionnaire and an audit from the National Standards Authority of Ireland. Organisations benefit from the Mark through improved employee morale, better tendering credentials, enhanced investor relations and profile as a leading organisation in Ireland and abroad.
Fujitsu Ireland will now move into the BITC (Business in the Community) “Leader Stream”, we look forward to increased prosperity and the engagement of new and existing opportunities. Access to the Leader stream is obtained following a re-accreditation of the BWR Mark. This stream showcases organisations on a national and international scale, recognising them as leaders in responsible and sustainable business practices. The opportunities for identifying upcoming CSR trends and thought leadership can be effectively capitalised on through the CEO–led leadership working groups. Leader stream members are provided with access to national and international experts to help shape the development of future CSR strategies. The BWR Mark assesses companies under the following categories: Governance & Communications, Community, Workplace, Marketplace and Environment. Companies that have already obtained this mark include partners, existing customers and potential customers.
