Diversity and Inclusion
We believe that the future of our company is formed by the people in it. We want different people to feel like they can bring their entire selves to work and feel a sense of belonging. For us to set realistic goals for a more diverse work environment in the coming years, we feel it’s time to share an accurate image of the company's makeup as it is now.
To attract and retain a diverse group of people, we first need to focus on building an inclusive workspace. We don’t have the illusion that B&B will ever be fully inclusive or diverse. There’s always room for improvement – in our company, the industry and our society at large. Every step forward uncovers new challenges and we’re trying to address them one step at a time. This report is a starting point for a longer trajectory, in which we will try to open up the conversation.
While we recognise that capturing data around self-identification is a daunting task, we didn’t want to skirt around certain sensitive questions by treating them like elephants in the room. This report presents the data we’ve gathered through an anonymous* demographic survey in 2018, which covered identity factors such as ethnicity, religion and gender identity. Our report includes only aggregated sets of data, meaning data appeared to us where 3+ people identified as a specific demographic. Being a small company, this means that we only have a general picture.
*The privacy and anonymity of our employees was our chief concern. Our report solely includes aggregated sets of data, meaning data appeared to us where 3+ people identified as a specific demographic. The collected data sets enable us to better understand the needs of everyone, but will never be used in a way which identifies individual beings.
*13% of the employees did identify themselves as being in a leadership position in combination with another role. We were not able to identify these correlations due to privacy regulations, so this diagram shows the number of people who are solely fulfilling C-level roles.
*We don’t have official job levels at B&B, we asked our employees to indicate how they identify themselves within the company.
*In future surveys and articles, we’ll adopt the more inclusive term GSD: Gender and Sexual Diversity.
*This graph shows more than 100%, because we gave people the opportunity to select multiple identifiers.
