Values are important at Hays

Our drive:
The Hays Spirit

The "Hays Spirit" describes our typical culture of integration and the enthusiasm we radiate. We attach great importance to working together on a human level and are committed to making you feel comfortable and valued at all times, right from the start. This also means that we deal with each other in a flexible and trusting manner in order to achieve our goals. This is also reflected in our values.

 

  • Willingness to change

We are open to change, suggestions and criticism and constantly scrutinise our own actions. It is only through passion, a thirst for knowledge and a desire to embrace innovation that we can further develop our skills and expertise, predict industry trends and continue to expand our leadership position on the market.

  • Appreciation

We are respectful and sincere in our communications. We give our time, respect and full attention to everyone we deal with. We recognise good performance, give honest feedback and provide constructive criticism. We treat everyone with the same due consideration we would expect ourselves and strive toward and achieve our goals together.

  • Results driven

As a high-performance organization in the "people business", being sustainably focused on achieving results is extremely important to us. We are guided by our customers' and candidates' needs and deliver high-value services – with professional competence and our fullest commitment.

  • Personal responsibility

We take responsibility, seize the initiative, stand by our decisions and accept the consequences – never losing sight of our overall corporate objectives and always weighing up potential risks. We take full control of our personal and professional development.

  • Trust

We trust in each other, because we know that those who act with initiative may also make mistakes – but this is how we learn. We always review and reflect on our results based on the given situation. Our fundamental philosophy is to lead constructively, positively and always with a focus on achieving our goals.

MENSCHEN MACHEN DEN UNTERSCHIED
STRATEGIE 2025





Der Blick in die Vergangenheit zeigt, dass unsere Werte und unsere Identität das Fundament sind, das uns stark gemacht hat. Diese Stärken nutzen wir heute, um mit unseren vier Key Strategic Priorities (KSPs) in Verbindung mit echter Veränderungs- und Innovationsbereitschaft unser Zielbild 2025 zu erreichen. Zu unseren vier Key Strategic Priorities gehören:

  • Mitarbeitende: Wir richten uns nach den Bedürfnissen der Mitarbeitenden aus und verstehen, dass ihre Motive und Schwerpunkte sich im Laufe des Lebens verändern. Daher gehen wir individuell auf sie ein und unterstützen sie hierbei. In Lebensphasen, in denen Sicherheit und Stabilität wichtig sind, sind wir das passende Eco-System, aber auch in Phasen der Veränderung und des Kompetenzausbaus, können unsere Mitarbeitenden auf eine fluide Struktur mit dem passenden Netzwerk und den passenden Lösungen setzen.
  • Kundenunternehmen: Jedes Kundenunternehmen steht mit uns in einem partnerschaftlichen Verbindung. Wir richten unser Handeln auf die Interaktionsbereitschaft unserer Kundenunternehmen aus und wollen mit diesen eine langfristige Nutzenbeziehung eingehen.
  • Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten: Als Personaldienstleister befinden wir uns mit unseren Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten in einer lebenslangen Netzwerkpartnerschaft, in der wir voneinander profitieren und lernen. Wir bieten Lösungen für die aktuellen und zukünftigen Herausforderungen aller an und verbinden sie mit den Bedarfen aus der Wirtschaft.
  • Organisation: Die Organisation von Hays bildet die Bedürfnisse aller sich im Netzwerk befindenden Beteiligten ab. Dazu gehören Kundenunternehmen, Kandidatinnen und Kandidaten sowie unsere Mitarbeitenden. Hierzu gilt es passende Partnerinnen und Partner zu vernetzen, Interaktions-Aktivitäten zu fördern und Informationen auszutauschen. Die kontinuierliche Stärkung unserer Anpassungsfähigkeit und ein hohes Maß an Flexibilität stellen sicher, dass wir die Netzwerkbedürfnisse verstehen und erfüllen können.

Doing the right thing
together

We love diversity! Because we firmly believe that the more perspectives, experiences and cultural backgrounds that flow into the idea and decision-making process, the better our results. As a modern company, we are consistently committed to doing the right thing. That's why we focus on equal opportunity in every respect. We evaluate our employees on the basis of their performance and behavior - not their gender, age, ethnic origin, religion, health condition or sexuality!


In order to reflect the high priority that the topic of diversity has in our company to the outside world, we have not only signed the Diversity Charter - an employer initiative to promote diversity in companies - but are also the only medium-sized company to be an active member. This makes us part of the largest network for diversity management in Germany.

Von Null
auf Silber!

Wir sind offizieller PRIDE Champion! Nur ein Jahr nach Gründung unseres Hays Pride Networks ernten wir beim PRIDE Index der UHLALA Group das PRIDE Champion Arbeitgebersiegel in Silber.

Die Rezertifizierung unseres LGBTIQ+ Diversity Managements bringt unsere offene und wertschätzende Unternehmenskultur für LGBTIQ+ Personen klar zum Ausdruck und zeigt, wie bunt unser Business ist. Der PRIDE-Index ermöglicht Unternehmen die Bestandsaufnahme ihres LGBTIQ+ Engagements, zeigt Verbesserungspotenziale auf und stellt die Performance des Unternehmens damit auf den Prüfstand. Dank der strengen Kontrolle der Angaben gehört das Siegel zu den authentischsten Auszeichnungen im Diversity & Inclusion-Umfeld.

Bianca Onda-Wolgast, die neue Leiterin des Hays Pride Networks, ist begeistert: „Die ersten Meilensteine, wie zum Beispiel die Gründung des Hays-Pride und Pride-Ally-Netzwerks, die Teilnahme am CSD Mannheim und die Plakataktion zum Pride Day Germany, haben wir erfolgreich erreicht. Ich freue mich sehr, gemeinsam mit unserem tollen Netzwerk und unseren geschätzten Allies die nächsten Projekte in 2022 voller Motivation und Tatendrang anzugehen!“

OUR COMMITMENT TO
EVEN MORE DIVERSITY AT HAYS

Dirk Hahn about Diversity at Hays

Our commitment to diversity (selection)

Board

Diversity Council

The members of our Diversity Council, founded in 2018, act as ambassadors to promote diversity: They initiate dialogues, examine existing structures and processes, prioritise fields of action and deviate appropriate measures.

Conduct

Diversity Code of Conduct

We regularly review our patterns of thinking and behaviour. Our Diversity Code of Conduct provides guidance for doing so. It is based on our corporate values and clarifies the behaviour we expect from managers and employees regarding diversity and inclusion.

Working Time

Flexible part-time working models

On the Diversity Council's initiative, our existing part-time working models have been reviewed and strongly adapted for managers and staff. Meanwhile, the different working time models have been implemented – for a good work-life balance.

Openness

Hays Pride Network

With the Hays Pride Network appreciative we have created an exchange platform for our LGBTIQ+ community and we demonstrate internally and externally that we stand for an open and appreciative corporate culture. All employees can support the Hays Pride Network as an ‘Ally’.

Family

The fathers-network HAYSd@ds

Offers to reconcile family and work often focus on mothers. However, at Hays, more and more men would like to play an active role in shared caring. Among others, we therefore have initiated a network to support fathers.

Women in Leading Roles

Hays „Lioness“

More than 40% of Hays' managers are female. However, as nice as this number is: Women in management positions still face particular challenges. Lioness, our network for female experts and leaders, helps them to exchange experiences and support each other.

Learning

Diversity & Inclusion training

Diversity cannot be imposed – it must be developed and experienced in a cultural process. Our mandatory Diversity & Inclusion training shows all employees and managers how they can contribute to this process individually.

Facts

Diversity Dashboards

In order to measure changes, we create division-specific Diversity Dashboards each on, amongst others, promotions, the gender distribution at each hierarchy level, the number of employees working part-time or the different nationalities in our company.

Strategy

Global D&I Roadmap

In our view, it is important that the D&I strategy is supported by top management and not seen as the sole responsibility of HR departments. Read the text of our global D&I roadmap here.
