We’re a company that’s deeply rooted in global cultures and committed to understanding the human experience of living and working all around the world. With this in mind, each pillar of DEI – diversity, equity and inclusion – is crucial to our success in working with each other, clients, mobile employees and our supplier partners. This commitment to understanding each other clearly is the driving force behind our commitment to being a people-first company. It’s built into our DNA.
Studies show that diverse and inclusive environments produce more creative, innovative and engaged workforces, which results in happier employees. Through our efforts and commitments, and supported by our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Council, our goal is to continue building and strengthening a culture of inclusion so all Graebel employees feel valued and supported. By expanding accessibility to employees of every race, gender, age, disability, religion, and sexual orientation, and providing opportunities for success, we show our commitment to our best assets – our employees. As we work toward sustaining and leveraging a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace, our supplier partners, clients, and their mobile employees benefit by extension.
Here at Graebel, we’re guided by our values of truth, love and integrity. We’re grounded by the knowledge that listening to, learning from, and leaning into our differences makes us stronger as a team and better able to work with the global companies we serve.
“As a global company leading with a people-first philosophy, a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is a core focus for our organization and for how we engage with clients and supplier partners. Our goal is to create transformative change, for everyone in our network, toward a truly inclusive workplace and global mobility industry.”
DEI is an ongoing journey that requires everyone, everywhere, at every level, every day.
We commit to:
- Having courageous conversations
- Listening to learn from others and their lived experiences
- Leaning in with curiosity
- Showing up authentically
- Practicing allyship
- Fostering an environment that supports inclusion and inclusive behaviors
Increase diversity at all levels
We understand that a diverse workforce, having representation, at all levels brings about higher engagement, innovation and creativity. Valuing diversity strengthens teams and builds trust, creating a more positive employee experience.
Identify systemic barriers to full inclusion
Where barriers to access and opportunities exist we must review to uncover gaps, opportunities and challenges to create systems of fair and equal access.
Develop inclusive leaders and an inclusive mindset
Through ongoing education and awareness, we will continue to up-skill our workforce to support living and leading inclusively, through an ongoing learning journey. This starts with self discovery, then team and workplace efforts, which impact organizational transformation.
Graebel is committed to supplier diversity by encouraging opportunities and proactively engaging and building partnerships with diverse suppliers. Supplier diversity is an integral component of Graebel’s diversity management strategy, aligns with our commitment to the principles of the UN Global Compact and demonstrates our commitment to our client’s diversity programs.
We continue to cultivate diverse suppliers and ensure their sustainability within our global supply chain.
“At our core, we serve with Truth, Love, and Integrity. It is this core that drives us to create a more inclusive environment for everyone at Graebel. As we embrace our own diversity, we are better equipped to serve our diverse clients. Graebel stands as a true leader in the mobility industry by embracing, valuing and honoring the individual uniqueness of each of our employees.”
We committed years ago to build inclusive workplaces through our DEI initiatives and we’re proud of the progress we’ve made so far. We know that DEI is a journey and we’re dedicated to continuous improvement. That’s why we submitted for and earned the ISO 30415:2021 Diversity and Inclusion certification from the Human Resource Standards Institute, becoming the first full-service global relocation management company and the first of six in the world to earn this certification. This achievement reflects Graebel’s commitment to building inclusive workplaces and creating transformative change for our employees, our clients and their mobile employees, and our trusted supplier partners.
