PayPal today announces that it won an Excellence in the Workplace award at the 2016 Chambers Ireland Corporate Social Responsibility Awards held in Dublin last week. This prestigious national award was given to PayPal in recognition of its highly successful diversity and inclusion programme in Ireland.
Now in its 13th year, the annual awards ceremony recognises and celebrates the important contribution that CSR practices make to the local economy and society.
PayPal was a winner for the second year in a row in the Excellence in the Workplace category. This year, PayPal gained the highest recognition for its diversity and inclusion strategy, which is delivered across five key areas. These are inclusion training, women in business support, LGBT initiatives, a commitment to hire from the live register, and inclusivity in a multicultural workforce.
Speaking about the award win, Maeve Dorman, Head of Global Operations EMEA, said: “We’re thrilled that the dedication and hard work of our teammates has been recognised at the highest level in Ireland through this award win. Inclusion and equality are the foundations of everything we do at PayPal. We are fully committed to advancing, cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion and diversity because it is the right thing to do for employees, our company and the communities we serve. This strategy also makes PayPal a better and more fulfilling place to work and build a career.”
