Fundamentals: Culture

Raising Awareness and Valuing Diversity
Similarities and differences in a range of visible and invisible characteristics make people in an organization unique. Consciously addressing cultural barriers in the workplace and valuing differences between individuals helps to reduce prejudice. It ensures an open-minded atmosphere in the team as well as a corporate culture of openness regarding differences.

Exchange & Support
Personal exchange in a protected setting provides a valuable resource for so-called “social minorities” and shows them that they are not alone in the organization. The positive effect of social support for employees’ well-being can increase their productivity and creativity, including in research & development projects.
