Oracle employees represent a variety of cultures, span four generations, practice many religions, and live in large cities and small towns. This diversity allows us to examine our business from a range of perspectives.
At Oracle we foster an inclusive environment that leverages the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of all our employees, suppliers, customers, and partners to drive a sustainable global competitive advantage.
Oracle is an industry innovator because our employees know how to think outside the box. Therefore, it makes no sense to limit ourselves or them by putting any of our employees, applicants, partners, or even suppliers into a box based on their race, color, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, culture, religious and political beliefs, physical challenges, or varying viewpoints and approaches.
That's why we accept, respect, and fully embrace the many dimensions of diversity—diversity and inclusion is part of who we are. Oracle's business spans the globe, with operations in 145 countries and 115,000 employees worldwide. The diversity of our U.S. workforce reflects our customers, partners, suppliers, and the communities in which we live and work.
The combination of diversity and inclusion is an Oracle business strategy that optimizes our employees' performance, engagement, and productivity, which in turn increase our competitive advantage. The multiple perspectives and experiences that our talented employees bring to their work every day drive creativity, innovation, and effective decision-making. This enables us to better anticipate and exceed our customers' changing requirements in a fast-paced global economy, and deliver more value to our stockholders.
Fostering an inclusive work environment makes us a stronger company and a better place to work. Our focus is on recruiting, hiring, developing, retaining, and advancing the best and the brightest talent around the world.
Ideas and talent are universal, and so is our workforce. It’s how our differences come together that make Oracle a world-class organization and innovator.
Oracle has offices in 145 countries, and we identify and recruit top local talent. For example, Oracle works with more than 30 colleges and universities across the US to recruit the best new talent.
The technology industry is critical to global progress and prosperity, and Oracle consistently leverages our technology leadership to benefit society. We adhere to a focused strategy as we manage our business, help customers to better run their own organizations, and contribute to the betterment of our communities.
We continually refine business practices and employ state-of-the art technology to increase efficiency, reduce excess, and create opportunity.
