TietoEVRY included in 2020 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index
21 January 2020
TietoEVRY has been listed as part of the 2020 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). The index recognizes companies setting an example in advancing women’s equality in the workplace.
The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI) tracks the performance of companies committed to advancing women in the workplace globally. The reporting framework considers female leadership and talent pipeline, equal pay and gender pay parity, inclusive culture, sexual harassment policies, and pro-women brand.
“We are extremely proud to see that TietoEVRY is recognized as part of the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index as one of two Nordic tech companies. Embracing our Nordic heritage, we are committed to promoting openness, trust and diversity, which are the core values in building the new company,” says Trond Vinje, Head of Human Resources at TietoEVRY.
“We see diversity is a business imperative – commitment to gender inclusion creates a supportive working environment, which in turn fosters productivity and collaboration. These are crucial in sparking innovation and driving better business performance. The recognition is a great signal that we are on the right track, but we acknowledge that we and other companies in the tech industry still need to continue working hard towards true gender equality. We are committed to confront that challenge head on,” Trond Vinje continues.
"The 325 companies included in the 2020 GEI have shown their commitment to transparency and demonstrated leadership in gender-related data reporting. Disclosure of company statistics and practices is an important first step in supporting gender equality globally,” says Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg.
The 2020 Index represents 325 global companies in 50 industries, headquartered across 42 countries and regions. Companies that are included in the index score above a global threshold in terms of equality-related policies and statistics.
In 2019, Tieto ranked in the top three global tech companies in Equileap's Global Gender Equality Ranking, Tieto Sweden was certified with the EDGE Assessment Certificate for its outstanding gender equality, and EVRY Norway was listed as Norway’s best technology company for women by the SHE Index.
