Diversity & Inclusion

As an employer:

At Michael Page, we’ve consolidated our commitment to diversity and inclusion, having introduced OpenPage in 2014 to help raise awareness in our business. It embraces a diverse and inclusive working environment where:

  • Age is just a number

  • Disability doesn’t hold you back

  • Sexual orientation doesn’t matter

  • Families and carers come first

  • A multicultural workforce thrives

  • Women succeed at work 

Part of our strength is in our teamwork. Our inclusion promise ensures a team that’s diverse in every office across the globe. OpenPage makes that promise a reality through our meritocratic approach to success. We find great candidates for our clients based solely on their abilities, and our inclusion promise ensures we treat our own people the same way.
