Embracing the journey
At SumUp, we’re committed to building a culture where we can learn from each other in a safe space and thrive. We believe we can make a positive impact for our SumUppers, as well as for our planet as a whole. We’re not perfect and there’s still work to do, but we’re embracing this rewarding journey together.
INCLUSION & BELONGING
Our differences make us unique and strong. We want to appreciate our differences and empower our people to lead change. Driven by our values, we strive to create a culture where everyone can feel belong and supported - no matter how they identify.
BALANCE & WELL-BEING
We support the needs of SumUppers by promoting self-care habits and healthy boundaries. We encourage everyone to embrace work-life models that allow them to nurture their mental wellbeing as a priority. By creating a connected community, our goal is to build an environment where SumUppers are healthy and fulfilled.
“Being able to challenge each other is a valuable asset in our culture to drive our diversity efforts. We need to reflect on our own behaviours and societal norms to have an impact in our world.”
– Felizitas, Global Head of Diversity & Inclusion
