Words of Wisdom from our CHRO:
At Vonage, our employees are energized by the notion of “Be What’s Next. Right Now.” We’re constantly in a race with ourselves and the market to offer the best products and services to help our customers drive better experiences for their employees and customers, while also making Vonage a Destination Place to Work. To do that, we need a team of top talent that is fearless in the face of change. We believe in order to create an environment that supports our innovative spirit and fast pace, we must foster inclusion by being champions of fairness and equality.
We believe in equality and that if you can “be who you are,” you can do your best work. To us, that’s what being a Destination Place to Work is all about. We hope our employees find their time at Vonage to be a defining experience, so that when they look back they recall the impact they made on their teams, the organization and our customers.
We know that if we’re going to achieve our goals of becoming a Destination Place to Work and a high growth company that provides customers with the tools they need to transform their businesses through exceptional experiences, we need to have a balanced voice of different perspectives. One key area of focus to reachthat balance is gender diversity. As of 2019, the Vonage employee base is 72% male. We have work to do, and we’re working hard everyday to move the needle, with a short-term goal to increase our female population to 30%. While we are committed to hitting this initial target, it’s just the beginning of our efforts to achieve true balance at Vonage.To accomplish this, we’ve ramped up our efforts in three core areas:
Development & Advancement
At Vonage, we’re focused on being inclusive and fair in everything we do so that its no longer something we talk about, but just part of the fabric of our company. We will continue to support our employees at all stages of their lives and careers, enabling them to do their best work, while we make their experience at Vonage positive, memorable and meaningful.
We believe each individual influences our company culture, and we all have a personal responsibility to foster fairness and inclusion. When we respect each other and work in an environment that upholds fairness and inclusion to the highest standard, we enable everyone around us to be our best selves so that Vonage can Be What’s Next. Right Now.
