On the occasion of the 10-year anniversary of the Charta der Vielfalt, 349 organisations that have signed the Charta der Vielfalt were surveyed in the time period between July and September about their diversity management. At the same time, HR managers in 250 randomly selected companies that have not signed the voluntary commitment were surveyed. What was found was that two out of three companies in Germany are not prepared for the foreseeable changes brought about by a diverse business culture. At the same time, a great majority, namely 65 percent, are aware of the fact that including different life models, cultural perspectives and experiences brings advantages to one’s company.
The objectives, background and benefits of the Charta der Vielfalt company initiative as well as information on the association are presented in detail in the brochure.
