Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At Temenos, diversity, equity and inclusion are at the core of how we innovate and operate our business, which stems from our founding philosophy of ‘people are the key’.

Diversity is in our DNA

At Temenos, we believe that Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) is what makes our global company, community and society strong. Of course for diversity to thrive, everyone must be entitled to inclusive and equal treatment. Acting with this sort of integrity and authenticity has been key to our success and is integral to our culture of TEMENOSITY.
Temenos takes pride in serving over one billion people worldwide from diverse backgrounds through our software to make banking better.

How we measure up

We represent 83 different nationalities, working with clients and partners from over 150 different countries.
We rank among the leaders in our industry for gender diversity, with women making up 34% of our workforce.
We’re building a pipeline of female talent across all regions, functions and experience levels, with 45% of senior management roles currently held by women.

We are in the top 10% of world leaders in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, which measure diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity practices. 

Our approach

We believe in supporting a diverse community of customers by thriving to foster a culture of ‘everyday inclusion’ for our people to bring their best at work. As such, we:

Promote

Learning opportunities and awareness of DE&I.

– Allyship to support our diverse workforce representation.

– Holistic health and wellbeing initiatives.

Foster

– A culture of everyday inclusion and show solidarity through key events year around.

Affinity groups which cover: race, ethnicity, cultural heritage, gender parity and more.

Tackle

– Any form of discrimination with integrity to enable psychological safety in the work environment and, in turn, enhance employee experience.

Celebrating DE&I around the World

We know that the world is far from equal so we use our TEMENOSITY to ensure greater diversity and inclusion amongst our teams and to make a positive contribution to society. We have embedded equal opportunity practices in our recruitment, talent development and pay. Our employees are incredibly passionate about equality too and they get involved in campaigns to drive awareness on gender diversity, race, ethnicity, LGBTQ+, health and wellbeing including mental health, as well as volunteer to give back to the communities in which we live & work.

International Day of Education 2021

Education is a human right and today, on January 25, we celebrate the United Nation’s International Day of Education, under the motto “Recover and Revitalize Education for the COVID-19 Generation”. In celebrating the International Day of Education, we celebrate our employees’ contributions and hope to shed light on the unfortunate situations many children and adolescents find themselves in.

Human Rights Day 2020 – Recover Together

Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December — the day the United Nations General Assembly adopted, in 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). It is an opportunity to reaffirm the importance of human rights in re-building the world we want, the need for global solidarity as well as our interconnectedness and shared humanity. We as a company feel strong about human rights and have ourselves undertaken several measures to recover together.
