Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Symantec is building a diverse and inclusive culture, a culture centered on our core values and a shared commitment to excellence. We believe that an equitable and inclusive work environment, one where people can be their authentic selves, can help amazing things come to life.
At Symantec, everyone has a voice. Diverse points of view help us make better business decisions, to make sure the products and services we offer meet the needs of the broad spectrum of people we serve worldwide. This starts with building teams with different backgrounds and perspectives. It helps us understand our customers better, enables us to respond to new trends more rapidly, and stimulates innovation. We invest in diversity not just because it’s the right thing to do but because it translates to a higher performing industry, company… and bottom line.
We have a multifaceted approach when it comes to driving diversity, equity and inclusion at Symantec:
Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) play an important role in our diversity, equity, and inclusion strategy. ERGs are employee-led, bringing together team members with common life experiences and/or backgrounds, and their allies. Their mission is formed around 4 focus areas:
Recruiting, Retention, Advancement
Employee Engagement, Cultural Awareness
Marketing for Diversity, Customer Involvement
Philanthropy, Outreach, Volunteering
Symantec ERGs include:

We are also committed to safe and inclusive workplaces where everyone is respected and encouraged to thrive. That’s our commitment to you.
In April 2017, the UK Government introduced legislation that required organizations with over 250 employees to publish their Gender Pay Gap (GPG) data. The purpose of analyzing and publishing gender pay gap data is to help organizations identify causes of pay disparity, if one exists, and to promote actions to mitigate.
The UK Gender Pay Gap (GPG) regulations have given Symantec an opportunity to see how well we’re living up to our values and commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the UK, and across the business. It is important to us that all employees feel a sense of belonging and that they are valued. Our commitment to pay equity continues with further evaluation of existing processes and a focus on closing any gaps that may exist.
