Your company's commitment to diversity.
The time has come, Swiss Diversity introduces the 'Inclusion Certificate', designed to strengthen your company's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Our comprehensive certification process assesses key aspects of inclusion: gender equality, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, age, wellbeing & mental health, cultural background and 'new work'.
By achieving Gold, Silver or Bronze certification, your company will credibly and transparently demonstrate its commitment to promoting an inclusive and diverse work environment. Through this, you will be recognized as a preferred company in Switzerland, supporting your talent acquisition and retention efforts. In addition, our certification serves as evidence of your commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles, which positively impacts your brand reputation and relationships with external stakeholders.
Not ready for full certification? No problem. We offer individual 'seals' (Seals) to measure specific aspects such as Gender Equality, Age, People with Disabilities, New Work and Wellbeing & Mental Health, so you can progress at your own pace and focus on the areas that are most relevant to your organization.
Embrace the future of D&I by partnering with us for your certification. Together, we will create a more inclusive and equitable workplace that supports your growth and success in an ever-changing world. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to demonstrate your company's commitment to promoting diversity & inclusion and fostering a truly diverse workforce.
Helping you on the path to certification through Swiss Diversity's 'Inclusion Certificate' is a team that collectively brings over 50 years of experience in Diversity & Inclusion. Each team member holds the ISO-30415:2021 - Human Resources Management - Diversity and Inclusion Standard.

In parallel, a detailed review of your D&I guidelines and structures based on the ISO D&I standard takes place. This is followed by the final report and presentation. Here, the results and achievement of the Gold, Silver or Bronze level are discussed, along with recommendations for the further development of your D&I strategy.
