Diversity & Inclusion

A diverse team is a powerful team. Including voices from all walks of life brings new ideas and perspectives – something that’s imperative to a people-centric company like tastyworks.

Always Working Towards a More Diverse Workplace

It is about embracing difference. Understanding that we are not all the same and that our difference is a vital part of our strength as an organization.

Diversity

Our aim is to act on the belief that Diversity is something to truly embrace. Diversity is not just a set of targets; it is about doing the right thing and raising the bar together.

This means building an inclusive culture, creating an enjoyable place to work and being more effective by having diverse thinking and ensuring everyone can bring their whole self to work.

Inclusion

Treating everybody equally. Inclusion defines how your workforce feels. To provide equal access to opportunities and resources for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized – such as those who have physical or mental disabilities and members of other minority groups.

Visa Opportunities

We are a global company with a global scope. We’re open to sponsoring work visas for immigrants, and helping with citizenship sponsorship as well. Each new international perspective is priceless to our team.

The Protected Characteristics

We value the full range of differences between people both in the workplace and in wider society.

Race

Race refers to a person’s colour, nationality or ethnic origins with racial groups featuring individuals who share the same characteristic, for example, Romany Gypsies.

We believe in supporting people of all races and ethnicities as well as donating to groups supporting people of color in our neighbourhoods.

IG Network and Initiative Groups

Our parent company, IG, provides our employees with a number of network and initiative groups to enable action, support, and connections with other people.

This group was created with a specific goal in mind – to offer support and encouragement for our female employees and provide them with a platform to help them develop and succeed in their careers.

IG PACT is a place to bring all parents and carers together. We aim to create a truly global network of parents and carers, inclusive of anyone with caring responsibilities regardless of location, gender and sexual orientation.

The goal of IG Open is to support the specific needs of employees who identify themselves as LGBTQIA+ and to provide an open forum where people can network, exchange experiences and speak comfortably about any matter.

The network connects and provides guidance to black employees on a global scale. In doing this, we're able to acknowledge the hurdles that black employees often experience in the workplace, which gives us the ability to facilitate an open atmosphere for learning.

Technology Diversity & Inclusion Team

IG and the Technology function have explicit goals around nurturing our talent, cultivating an inclusive culture, and attracting a diverse workforce while setting them up for success.

IG Community Fund

The IG Community Fund is IG’s way of supporting our employees to help the causes they care most about. The fund can make a real difference to the charities, projects and community organisations that mean the most to people at IG. This is part of IG’s Brighter Future initiative.

IG People Forum

The purpose of the People Forum is to enhance our parent company’s ability to access the voice of their global workforce – to ensure that our ideas, opinions, and experiences are harnessed and fully listened to.

We recently elected Katie McGarrigle as our tasty representative. She listens to our ideas and thoughts and acts as our voice in conversations with IG at large.
