Our inclusion commitment

September 2020

We are a diverse, global workforce and are committed to celebrating individuality and talent at Tyk. We want to build an inclusive working environment for everyone to thrive across the business and to do this, Tyk will become more diligent across all of the work we do and use data to drive more mindful decisions that will help to create positive impact and change.

We will use this page to map out our demographics and the diversity of our team and use this to openly track those changes over time.

By measuring and sharing this information, our current teams, future Tyklings and our Clients will have a better understanding of who we are, and ensure we have the data needed to deliver real and lasting change on our policies, systems and ways of working to improve the way we build, develop and lead our teams.

The stories that make us

Diverse experiences help shape the work we do

The one thing that is incredibly rare and which you can definitely see at Tyk is the freedom to be an agent of change

– Viola Marku, UX Researcher

My faith is the most important thing for me – I’m Muslim – and I believe that work shouldn’t interfere with your beliefs. Tyk is very supportive on this topic

– Furkan Şenharputlu, Software Engineer

Our focus areas

We will continue to focus on creating an inclusive environment for our employees to contribute, collaborate and thrive as their true authentic selves at work. Success is when all of our people feel their diversity is celebrated and feel included at work. Below are the first initiatives we are launching to start this programme of change at Tyk.

 

  1. Bi-annual all employee Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (EDIB) training, with additional sessions for hiring managers.
  2. Monthly Board review of the diversity data from internal teams and external applications, including any initiatives and activity updates.
  3. Founder 1:1’s with colleagues for conversations around diversity, inclusion and equity.
  4. Launching an Inclusion Network from which will discuss our data and create actions from our people to help us drive initiatives.
  5. Ongoing leadership training programmes for current and aspiring managers ensuring everyone has the opportunity to develop.
  6. Mentoring and Coaching programmes to support everyone in the organisation.
