We are convinced that diverse teams are better able to solve complex tasks and understand the different requirements of our customers. That is why we consider diversity to be an important success factor for our company. ProSiebenSat.1 Group signed the Diversity Charter in 2014 and follows the guidelines stipulated therein. This highlights our commitment to creating a work environment free from prejudice and exclusion, and where diversity is actively encouraged among employees.
We hire employees at all hierarchical levels solely based on objective criteria and promote employees based on their skills and expertise alone. Other factors such as background and culture, age, gender, sexual orientation and identity, disability, religion and ideology do not come into play. The average age of ProSiebenSat.1 employees as of December 31, 2018 was 37.1 years (previous year: 36.8 years). Achieving a good balance of men and women within the company and in management positions is also important when it comes to diversity. In 2018, 48.8% (previous year: 48.9%) of employees in the Group were women.
