Since becoming a member of the UN Global Compact in 2012, Roland Berger has been issuing a Communication on Progress (COP) report that illustrates our commitment to the ten principles while increasing overall transparency and accountability. Our 8th report highlights and takes stock of the activities undertaken by us to meet the expectations set by the UNGC, and to meet our responsibilities towards improving both people and planet.
Supporting our people
In what turned out to be yet another year of unprecedented challenges, we prioritized the health and wellbeing of our people as well as the communities we live in. A Corona Taskforce was established early on that focused on safeguarding employees during travel, putting measures in place to respond to COVID-19 infections in the company, providing masks, air filters, flu vaccines and much more. Additionally, we continue to enable remote working through our ‘New ways of working for Roland Berger’ program wherein budgets have been allocated for teambuilding activities and virtual health clubs that allow employees to stay motivated and maintain a well-balanced lifestyle. In 2021, we launched the RB Trip app, which among other things, ensured employees would get immediate alerts informing of COVID-19 restrictions (as well as other unforeseen events) in the country they are travelling in.
Diversity + Inclusion matters
Over the past year, driven by
of entrepreneurship, excellence and empathy, we doubled down on our commitment towards fostering an equal opportunity work environment that is open and respectful by taking actionable measures to address inequalities and discrimination.
At the center of our efforts to create racial and social equity is our decision to
in Roland Berger’s corporate strategy. As a global business that employs and works with thousands of people worldwide, we’ve always believed that the diversity of our employees enriches and empowers us. In 2020, a Global Diversity Team was put in place to drive local and global initiatives for a diverse workforce. Additionally, we have mandatory workshops on ‘unconscious bias’ for management teams worldwide, as well as a regular ‘Diversity Dashboard’ that comprehensively tracks both local and global diversity KPIs.
A new sustainable paradigm
is one of the most pressing challenges of our time, and we at Roland Berger are committed to doing our part to help avert an inevitable disaster. That’s why sustainability has always been at the very core of our purpose and our business strategy.
