- Recruitment processes that keep our
  long-term diversity goals in mind
- Flat, non-hierarchical deal teams
- Inclusion of all employees at IC meetings
- Training and mentoring to enable a rewarding career
Supported by:

- Flexible working environment
- Best-in-class parental leave policy
- Encouragement to pursue volunteer activities
- Promotion of a good work/life balance
