iData Kft is among the signatories

In a festive event, 50 companies committed themselves to signing the European Diversity Charter Hungary in order to facilitate the development of diverse workplaces. By signing the Charter, the companies voluntarily undertake to respect equal treatment and to take specific action to create a diverse corporate culture. The signing ceremony took place at the Residence of the Embassy of the Netherlands on 20 October 2016.

The European Diversity Charter was initiated in 2004 in order to record the European Union’s anti-discrimination and diversity policies and promote them among employers. Its main objective is to raise leaders’ awareness and to increase their commitment to mainstreaming diversity in their organizations by providing support and inspiration for developing and rethinking human resource management.

A number of studies have proved that diversity largely contributes to the success of organisations by increasing innovation and creativity, including new customers and business and other partners and enabling them to react to changes more quickly. Moreover, it also supports compliance with the anti-discrimination provisions of the Constitution and other legal regulations.
Hungarian companies signing the European Diversity Charter Hungary such as MÁV, Magyar Posta, Shell Hungary, IBM Hungary and Magyar Telekom decided to focus on values and skills recognising that a diverse staff is a key to success. They made various commitments to make sure that the principles of diversity are applied both during recruiting and in promotion as part of normal business practices, and thereby set an example to other companies operating in Hungary.

iData Kft was also among the firms signing the European Diversity Charter Hungary. The document was signed by iData’s Managing Director Lajos Szabó.
