Our diversity and inclusion strategy
At Zyxel, we believe a diverse and inclusive workplace will drive innovation, productivity, and resilience. Zyxel promises to maintain employment diversity in various aspects – gender, race, language, age, party affiliation, or marital status will not be taken into consideration during hiring, remuneration, and promotion. In 2021, there was zero incident of discrimination reported.
One of our biggest ambitions is to create equal opportunity for men and women in every function and at each level. As of 2021, female employees account for 34 percent of Zyxel's global workplace. The women to men ratio at the management level was 25 percent and 29 percent in sales, marketing, and R&D roles.
