PayPal is fully committed to achieving a more diverse and inclusive workplace. Our commitment is inherent to who we are, and what we stand for as a company. We pursue diversity and inclusion because we believe that our employees deserve an environment where they are valued for who they are – a place where everyone can express their full selves and fulfill their highest potential.
Diversity and inclusion are the foundation of everything we do. We ensure that each and every member of this global team is treated equally and given the opportunity to develop within the organisation. This approach is ingrained in our ethos and at every level of the business. For example, we ensure that all Team Leaders are trained in diversity and inclusion to combat any unconscious bias, as well as to teach them how to operate in an inclusive manner.
Of the 1 in 5 employees promoted over the past year, females were promoted at a slightly faster rate (19%) than males (17%).
Through Unity, a PayPal affinity group of women and men working together to create more opportunities for women at PayPal, we are focused on gender equality and gender balance. The mission of Unity is to help women thrive, provide them with growth opportunities, and help the next generation explore the world of technology. Founded in 2007, Unity is a grassroots team with a presence in 35 PayPal locations across the globe.
Sample projects, efforts and events include:
“For PayPal, one of our core values is diversity and inclusion – it is not just a poster on the wall. It is fundamental to how we build our products. Fintech at PayPal is about democratizing money and allowing access to financial services to everyone. The diversity inherent in that mission is ingrained in us as a company in everything we do, thus it’s a topic that is fundamental to who we are and is one of the reasons I came to the company.”
“There are clearly many aspects to what makes a company successful, but I strongly believe that our greatest asset and driver of performance is our people. It is our employees who show up each day to innovate, collaborate and draw upon each other’s strengths. We recognize and embrace that it is individual qualities that make each one of us unique and allow teamwork to flourish.”
"The spectrum of things I’ve worked on has pushed me out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. Everyone was an equal partner, it’s been really rewarding and helped me continuously grow and learn."
"It is important that we're constantly improving the incubator programme to meet the needs of the growing startup community in Singapore and South-east Asia. "We want to empower more of these emerging and ambitious players with the necessary tools that will advance their development, and ultimately foster collaborations and connections that contribute towards a more vibrant innovation ecosystem in Singapore and South-east Asia,"
