Five Ways Workplaces Must Change in 2021 and Beyond
PGIM’s Kathryn Sayko shares key learnings from 2020 and suggests five ways workplaces must change in 2021 to create truly equitable and inclusive workforces.
At PGIM, diversity of perspectives is at the core of who we are and what we do. We believe that harnessing our differences and creating a workplace where all talent thrives is what allows us to deliver the exceptional outcomes our clients have come to expect. Our programs and policies are designed to ensure that upon joining PGIM, all employees feel welcomed and are empowered to bring their authentic selves to work each day.
Inclusion is not just something we aspire to, it’s an obligation. Our leaders and colleagues across the globe are committed to creating a culture of belonging, where diverse perspectives are celebrated. With the understanding that change starts at the top, we’ve committed to a “5-over-5” goal to increase diverse representation at the senior-most levels of PGIM by 5% over the next 5 years. We have clear goals in place that we are tracking, and we are actively making progress to achieve these goals each and every day.
Diverse ideas, perspectives and people are the foundation of PGIM’s enduring success. By promoting an equitable workplace, and a welcoming and inclusive environment, we nurture a “low ego” culture that allows all employees to bring their whole self to work, and to harness our collective intelligence for the benefit of our clients and the broader PGIM community.
To meet the needs of our diverse community, we offer global programming year-round and celebrate the ways we are more alike than we are different. Our global inclusion initiatives provide opportunities for the PGIM community to come together and celebrate International Women’s Day, Pride Month, Inclusion Month and more. We provide these platforms so our employees can have their individual voices heard, and to support and empower them as they drive the positive change they want to see in the world.
