As a company with a broad global business portfolio encompassing electronics, entertainment and financial services, Sony employs individuals of diverse backgrounds. Sony leverages its diverse businesses and workforce as strengths in its business strategy. The Sony Group Diversity Statement was established in 2013 to serve as a global policy to further highlight the importance of diversity in the workplace. Sony embraces diversity as a key management strategy and respects the individuality of each employee and encourages them to inspire each other through ongoing dialogue, and is convinced that this will create new value and drive further growth for the company.
It is in Sony's DNA — and a source of our innovation — to value different perspectives and backgrounds as we conduct our business activities globally and rise to new challenges.
Sony promotes diversity across the Sony Group as a key management strategy by ensuring an inclusive work environment and by recruiting, hiring, training and promoting employees from diverse backgrounds.
During Sony Diversity Week, many events are held at Sony Group companies around the world to raise awareness and promote action for change by enhancing recognition and understanding of the significance of diversity. These events are designed to encourage employees to think deeply about diversity in its many forms — from race, nationality, disabilities, and gender, to sexual orientation, view points, and workstyles — as well as to facilitate new perspectives and active communication. These events also engage the wider community by involving other companies and outside organizations.
