Diversity & inclusion

Edenred's 10,000 employees connect 50 million users to 2 million merchants in 45 countries. As a true global player, the Group makes Diversity a key element of its HR practices.

What diversity & inclusion mean for Edenred

Diversity is a part of Edenred’s identity: each employee is unique, and their insights are strongly valued. Their different backgrounds make us fast-paced and highly imaginative. Their personal histories drive us question everything, find innovative solutions, win and grow. By enriching our connections with our customers, diversity makes us an ideal everyday partner.

Inclusion is the way to ensure that all Edenred employees thrive at work and feel fulfilled in their professional life. From Chile to Japan, we want each of them to embrace global team spirit and experience a strong sense of belonging. As everyone can contribute in their own way, all Edenreders are strongly encouraged to be themselves.

Edenred’s commitment to diversity

No matter their gender, sexual orientation, age, differing abilities, ethnicity or background, all Edenreders have the same opportunity for growth and development.

Of course, for the Edenred family, the International Women’s Day is just like any other day – a time for promoting greater diversity and inclusion. Nonetheless, it’s also the perfect time to reflect on one of our main Corporate Social Responsibility objectives, and reassert it strongly: we want 40% of executive positions occupied by women by 2030.

For this reason, we have introduced robust initiatives at global level, with a clear target for gender diversity.
