Jabra is proud to sponsor the IAMCP Women in Technology Microsoft Inspire 2018 Charity Luncheon.
Being productive is not solely related to the technology you provide but also the inclusion of your most precious commodity, the workforce. A workforce that feels included, is shown to be more productive. Jabra has taken steps over the last year to form both a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, and a women’s network designed to empower our employees.
As a result, being an active part of the IAMCP WIT community is of high importance because it’s something we are passionate about and it aligns with the corporate culture we are shaping for the future workforce. By 2024, ½ the workforce will be made up of Millenials, what tools will today’s company’s give them to succeed in the workplace? That’s one of the things we are focused on.
