Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion is a commitment to recognising and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique in an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates individual and collective achievement. Practising diversity and inclusion means incorporating diversity into Ricoh’s talent acquisition, talent management, succession management processes and into our values and culture. This ensures that our workforce reflects the diverse communities in which we operate and our customer base.
