Diverse teams can handle the incredible variety of challenges posed by today’s working life better than individuals. Teams are particularly effective when many different skills and abilities are interlinked. Ultimately, only different perspectives on a challenge can produce comprehensive and efficient solutions. With precisely this in mind, A1 Telekom Austria Group has signed the “Diversity Charter”. In doing so, it is publically committed to using and preserving the wealth of cultural traditions and skills in its countries.
A1 Telekom Austria Group also takes a clear stance when it comes to gender equality — equal opportunities are a fixed element of all its activities. This is supported by a range of programmes, which aim to inspire women to go into technical professions, for example. A1 Telekom Austria Group has set itself the goal of increasing the proportion of women in management positions at the company to 38 % by 2018.
