HSBA signed the Charter of Diversity in December 2008, thus also demonstrating in a public way the great value that our university attaches to equality, openness and tolerance.
The diversity of modern society, influenced by globalisation and reflected in the demographic changes, is affecting economic life in Germany. We have come to realise that we can only be successful in business if we acknowledge and leverage diversity. That includes the diversity of our workforces and the diverse needs of our customers and other business partners.
The diverse competencies and talents of management and staff open up new chances for innovative and creative solutions.
The implementation of the Charter of Diversity in our companies aims at creating a work environment free of prejudice. We deeply respect all colleagues irrespective of sex, race, nationality, ethnic background, religion or worldview, disability, age and sexual preference. The appreciation and promotion of these diverse potentials produce economic benefits for our businesses.
We foster an atmosphere of respect and mutual trust. This will have positive effects on our reputation and integrity with our partners and customers in Germany and in the world.
