The diversity of the team has long played an important role for Arvato Systems as a prerequisite for sustainable corporate success. The philosophy: The potential and abilities of employees should be recognized, used and developed in the best possible way. Only a diverse team can turn a company into an innovative, competitive and growing enterprise.

For this approach of an open and appreciative corporate culture, Arvato Systems has now been awarded the PRIDE 500 seal as a LGBT+ friendly employer. As an authentic LGBT+ employer seal, PRIDE 500 stands for credibility and trust. The seal is not for sale and can only be obtained in the context of a comprehensive online audit by the UHLALA Group. In this audit, the four subject areas "corporate structure", "employees and persons", "communication and visibility" and "corporate guidelines" are evaluated with regard to their design and orientation promoting LGBT+. Arvato Systems achieved above-average results in all four areas.

By being named a LGBT+ Diversity Champion, Arvato Systems is setting an example both internally and externally, offering job seekers, especially LGBT+ talents, an important orientation when choosing a new employer.
