Flex Romania signed the Romanian Diversity Charter

At Flex Romania, we are committed to embedding inclusion and diversity into everything we do. We are actively pursuing, implementing and reviewing working practices that enable a diverse and inclusive business strategy and working environment that are truly representative and supportive of our colleagues, customers and communities.

Inclusion means that everyone in the diverse mix feels involved, valued, respected, treated fairly, and embedded in our culture. Empowering all employees and recognizing their special talents is part of creating an inclusive company.

We are committed to fostering a strong culture of inclusion where every person at Flex feels that they belong and are fully seen, heard, and valued.

Diversity is only the first step towards inclusion. To enable our global and diverse workforce to truly thrive, we must strive for equity in our pursuit of a more inclusive culture at Flex. Equity can only be attained once we have acknowledged and addressed systemic imbalances that have provided advantages to some and barriers to others, often to those in marginalized communities.

We will continue to drive strategic initiatives and identify opportunities that demonstrate:

  • Diverse representation matters and is a benefit to our business and humanity.
  • Our responsibility to help accelerate equality in the workplace and the world.
  • A commitment to inclusion where we can do our best.

Alexander Klein, GM and VP Operations, Flex.

The Romanian Diversity Charter (Carta Diversitatii din Romania) brings together 156 signatories, covering cca. 210,000 employees from companies, public institutions and NGOs, who have publicly assumed the principles of the Charter, so that diversity, equal opportunities and social inclusion become values acknowledged and respected in Romania. Signing the Charter represents a valuable starting point for organizations wishing to embark on their diversity journey and also provides a framework for companies to develop existing policies. Under the auspices of the Charter, several initiatives have taken place (experience exchanges, workshops, debates, publications) where different practices and organizational policies of diversity management were presented and disseminated.
