Diversity Charter

At Datamatics, we believe our strength lies in our differences. It is what makes us unique and brings together the best in each one of us. With this belief, we started working towards building a more diverse and dynamic workforce and aimed to have one of the best male-female ratios in the industry.

Datamatics Diversity Core Representation

We have a four-pronged approach Attract & Hire, Engage, Encourage, Retain which constitutes our Diversity core. All our diversity initiatives revolve around these four themes.

Datamatics Diversity Charter - Complex problems need diverse solutions:

Extending the concept of Diversity beyond just gender to also but also Generation, Qualification, Culture, Experience, Ability, Thoughts and Opinions.

On International Women’s Day, We launched the 'Datamatics Diversity Charter', formalising our continued commitment towards Diversity, not limiting it to the only gender but also Generation, Qualification, Culture, Experience, Ability, Thoughts and Opinions. Bringing in more focus on a) Equity in the Workplace, b) Affirmative Actions, and c) Inclusive work Environment, all based on merit. While some programs like Welcome Back are currently in practice, new initiatives like (Wo)Mentoring, i.e. Women Mentoring Women, have been rolled out in a phased manner.
