Diversity @ emineo
We desire and promote diversity because we know its value
At emineo, it does not matter how old you are, what gender you are, what you believe in or who you love. We are interested in your qualifications, skills and abilities – and how you use them individually and successfully for our customers.
We are a dynamic and diverse team of currently 130 competent people from around 15 different nations. And we keep growing. We have hired over 40 new talents in the last twelve months (as of October 2020). By the way, ten of them are aged 50 and above and 16 percent are female. And we would like to see more of that! We desire and promote diversity as we know its value: In today’s complex, digital world, we need many different skills sets and perspectives as well as diverse ways of seeing and thinking. This is the only way we can successfully master the demanding framework conditions in customer projects as well as the future challenges facing our own company.

Women in IT: we are looking for you!
Every sixth emineo expert is a woman. We would like to increase this proportion as it is the mix that counts! Our female colleagues convince with a different way of thinking, a high level of creativity and outstanding communication skills. That is why we want to get more women into IT – at all levels.
Female professionals are a game changer, especially in the field of computer science. While there were hardly any women at the beginning, their share has fortunately risen steadily in recent years. However, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Instead of following rigid quotas, we at emineo would like to increase the proportion of women through measures such as gender equality, equal pay, personal promotion and development, and flexible working time models that fit individual life situations.
How do we do that? In the following interviews and videos, you can find out more about women at emineo, their everyday working lives and what excites them about IT.
Flexible part-time work: Working mums and dads –
but also others!
emineo is looking for ordinary people, whose life situations and desires change. We employ many mothers and fathers who often work part-time. They all appreciate the working atmosphere and the flexible and mobile work at emineo with flat hierarchies and exciting tasks. But not only mothers and fathers prefer to work part-time because of their family situation. At emineo, we address this and find the right way together with you. This is because our talents are our most important asset.
This is what our colleagues say about their work, work-life balance and diversity at emineo:
Bring yourself, your passions and strengths to bear. Go to work as a normal person with a gamut of emotions, including fears and worries. Contribute yourself, your ideas and perspectives at any time. Do not let yourself or the other person stop you. Meet new things with curiosity and be inspired. This is how I experience emineo and this is how diversity thrives at emineo. We, at emineo, are people with very personal stories - and I appreciate that very much.
emineo gives me the opportunity to work on extremely challenging projects and topics. Work from home and flexible working hours enable me to attain a great work-life balance. A win-win situation in which I can realise both my professional and private goals. Thank you @emineo!
At emineo, I have the opportunity to design workshops and training courses flexibly on my own in consultation with the Customer. This helps me to balance my diverse and challenging work, my extended family and also sport. This includes creative approaches like jogging with colleagues to discuss projects. Due to the flexibility on all sides, 1+1 results in 3. I can have everything I need at the same time and enjoy my life.
The company offers me a variety of projects and topics to work on. This gives us the opportunity to always pursue interesting and diverse tasks. As an employee of this firm, I am a part of this beautiful mosaic painting. We are all different, but our different ideas, backgrounds and experiences make us complete each other and become more creative together. The flexible working hours - including work from home - allow me to balance my work, family, hobbies and social relationships. I can organise my time well for the benefit and good of all.
Thanks to emineo, it has always been possible for me to independently organise the right mix between working from home and on-site presence. Flexible working hours also make it easier to attain a great work-life balance. I enjoy the confidence and freedom of organising things myself, while being responsible for achieving my goals in a dynamic project environment and highly diversified project teams.
emineo allows me to work on challenging projects with a variety of highly talented colleagues of all ages. I myself joined emineo when I was over 60. Continuous learning is actively encouraged as well as the development of personal strengths. It is an uplifting and constructive environment, aiming at consciously bringing out the best in oneself and the team with fun and passion. I like the environment, the culture and the flexibility in the work-life balance.
At emineo, I can optimally combine my exciting and varied consulting activities with my family life. In addition, I also manage to create some free space for my hobbies even if this is only jogging in the forest from time to time. So I don't have to give up anything that is close to my heart - my little son, of course, various sports activities plus the opportunity to meditate. This gives me a basis for my responsible work, the ability to find good solutions in a team, to convince Customers and to have a lot of fun at the same time.
I like my colleagues and the friendly spirit of cooperation at emineo. As a part-time employee, I always get support in getting started or finding solutions within a project. Also, my team leader is always very attentive to my concerns. The flexibility of my work also allows me enough time for my girls - we like to craft, bake and ride bikes together.
