How Stratus Constructs Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Into Its Culture

At Stratus, we are highly focused on a healthy and an open-minded work environment with Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as our three strong pillars which continue to create a mutually evolving workplace attracting a diverse pool of talent across various cultural and traditional backgrounds. An open atmosphere built on trust with our employees where every employee feels equally valued, encouraged, motivated, heard, supported, and guided in all areas of Stratus ecosystem. A workplace which ensures equal opportunity to one and all.

This in turn creates impactful results and empowering our clients to achieve their goals utilizing our diversified and inclusive taskforce operating across our global delivery centers in India, the US, and the Latin America.

With our Business Value-Driven Delivery Model, we are focused to cultivate a people-and-business-oriented work environment in which all employees in the organization are seen and treated as valuable human resources and business partner at the same time. This culture supports formal and affable relations fairly because this would help people to relate with each other on an open and positive note. At the same time, all tasks and responsibilities are taken seriously.

Our policies and commitment include:

  • Treating everyone as a valuable contributor and a business partner for the organization.
  • Learning and Respecting each other’s’ emotions, feelings, thoughts, and peculiarities.
  • Respecting and valuing others’ time, cultural backgrounds, and responsibilities.
  • Ensuring everyone in the organization gets optimum attention and support their work-life balance.
  • Accepting, adhering, and following organizational strategies and missions so we all together achieve our long-term goals.
  • Business etiquette and ethics.
  • Positive, inspiring, and supportive attitude.

As rightly quoted by Marco Bizzarri – Diversity and inclusion, which are the real grounds for creativity, must remain at the center of what we do. And at Stratus, we make every day diligent efforts to practice and incorporate diversity and inclusion values through constant communication and connect with our employees across departments, work locations, job functions and management status and hence, ensuring smooth functioning of remote working culture. The Company firmly believes and aligns that this mutually evolving practice needs to spread and adopted across all offices, departments, teams, individuals, employees and even to external interested parties that may require to understand it and co-ordinate their interactions with the requirements. A culture of this kind that involves personal as well as business relations may not be straightforward to establish, understand and regulate. We perceive this as a symbiotic and mutually growing relationship and association where we as an organization ensure and support our employees to accomplish their aspirations while aligning with our Vision to assure optimal solutions are found, conferred, and agreed upon.

We continue to make progress in building a more diverse workforce. For instance, the number of women in tech roles at Stratus is increasing. This diversifies perspectives, knowledge and beliefs coming from many sources including gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, and professional and life experience. Stratus remains committed to diversity and inclusion and always look for ways to scale our impact and innovation as we grow.

We have through our time, effort, company policies and strategies achieved a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization’s success.
