Bristol, UK (31 May, 2023) – Pax8, the leading cloud commerce marketplace, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the ‘Best Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year’ at the 2023 MSP Innovation Awards. The accolade recognises Pax8’s commitment to championing diversity and inclusion across the business and celebrates the efforts of its employees in making the company and the wider IT channel more representative.
“At Pax8, we firmly believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential for fostering innovation and success”, said Chloe Cameron, Chief People Officer of Pax8 EMEA. “We are honoured to be recognised for our initiatives, which strive to create a welcoming environment where every employee feels valued and included. This award validates our commitment to building an inclusive culture that empowers our employees to reach their full potential and truly be their authentic selves in our company.”
Pax8’s Employee Resource Groups, voluntary employee-led groups, have played a significant role in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. These groups have provided forums for employees to raise common concerns, connect through shared causes or interests, and support each other’s personal and professional development. Pax8 also encourages its staff to build networks, invests in community groups, and has hired Culture and Experience coordinators to support community and social activities.
In addition, Pax8 has taken proactive steps to address gender diversity in the workplace. The company established the Pax8 Women Resources (pWr) group, dedicated to empowering its female employees and combating gender stereotypes. The pWr Group has set ambitious goals to drive female empowerment and collaboration across the business, uplifting careers for women in Pax8.
Harald Nuij, CEO of Pax8 EMEA, emphasised the importance of gender diversity, stating, “diverse teams drive innovation, creativity, and better decision-making. Pax8 is committed to providing equal opportunities and supporting the professional growth of women within our organisation. We believe that an inclusive company culture is crucial for our long-term success.”
The company’s commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace has also been recognised by Best Companies, which last year awarded Pax8 a 3-star accreditation for achieving ‘world class’ levels of workplace engagement. The company’s core values and dedication to creating an inclusive culture have enabled it to support over 400,000 customers through its 25,000 partners.
