We are committed to creating equitable opportunities for all Ceridian employees, and we work every day to make progress and deliver on that commitment. Our people make our organization stronger, more creative, and more resilient. In short—our people make us better. We recognize and value these strengths, and we strive to nurture them with policies and programs designed to encourage growth and wellness.
At Ceridian, we value diversity and aim to foster a culture that respects and celebrates everyone. This is essential to a positive employee experience, which is why we added Equity as an Our Way value in 2021. We prioritized creating a more inclusive workplace culture, formed a School of DEI inside Ceridian University, and established a company-wide Global Diversity Advisory Council. While these steps are meaningful, we recognize that we’re at the beginning of a journey and we’re committed to learning more and doing better.
We each require a solid foundation of health and well-being to be our best selves. To help our employees, we’ve established a wide range of programs to offer variety and convenience in our always-on world, including fitness reimbursements, wellness days, and mental health resources. In 2021, we appointed our first-ever Head of Workplace Health and Safety and established 10 health and safety committees around the world. As we enter the third year of the pandemic, we’re focused on ensuring that all necessary policies and procedures are in place to protect our employees, customers, and partners.
Our Leadership and Learning Development team helps advance our workforce development programming and meet the needs and expectations of our dynamic and fast-growing organization. Their initiatives include the creation of Ceridian University’s School of Learning and Leadership Development, which will include three new major bodies of work in 2021: Professional Skills Curriculum, Core Leadership Development Programming, and Strategic Leadership Development Programs.
