Come As You Are
We are different and global at all levels, so we commit to equity, embracing and working through differences, and are always listening and learning.
Everyone is different. Everyone brings diverse perspectives and experiences to their work, all of which have value. We are global at all levels, and our work is for a global audience and market.
We know that our differences may bring challenges and we commit every day to accepting that we’re not all the same, learning about our individualities, and figuring out how to use those skills, experiences, and perspectives to strengthen teams and make us work better together.
We value openness to change and to learn new things, and we understand that we are permanent students in the company and in the world. Diversity is not to be tolerated, it’s to be celebrated on a daily basis. When you discover something you don’t know or feel uncomfortable, that’s when growth starts.
We welcome everyone as they are. We like to consider Usercentrics as a melting pot, where we combine everyone’s backgrounds and are united by Usercentrics’ shared values. We act with empathy and kindness, without judgment, and have each other’s backs. We stand up for an inclusive work environment in which everyone feels appreciated and treated equally. We value respect, trust and the ability to constructively disagree.
We know that we each have a responsibility to do the work to learn and understand who others are and where they are coming from. We focus on the idea, action or message, rather than how we would have done it differently. We strive for equity over equality. Equity gives everyone access to what they need to succeed, and that’s different for each person. It considers that not everyone starts on equal footing. Equality is the idea that given the same opportunities, everyone will have similar outcomes, which is not always true.
We don’t want it to be much harder or riskier for some people to be brave. We want people to feel they belong culturally and socially. We are a diverse group, with a wide variety of languages, nationalities, identities, beliefs, and experiences. This is also a great strength, enabling more creativity and harnessing our group’s maximum potential.
Each of us is unique and has a lot in common with others in the company, which drives empathy. We want everyone to feel like their whole selves are welcomed and valued. We provide a safe space in which we can all be different human beings.
