Pirelli Germany has organised the fourth edition of the Diversity Day. The focus of 2016 edition was sport as an example of diversity and collaboration

The main focus of the Diversity Day, 2016 Edition, was sport. This is a choice in line with the two big events of this summer: UEFA European Football Championship in France and the Summer Olympic Games of Rio.

“These events are perfect examples of a high level of diversity,” says Josef Lottes , Director of Human Resources and Organization of Pirelli Germany GmbH. “From all continents people of all races and religions peacefully come together to compete in fair athletic competitions.”

Starting from this idea, Pirelli Germany has organised a table football tournament dedicated to its employees. In every team, composed by both men and women, different religions and nationalities were represented.
Diversity and integration has always been an important part of Pirelli’s corporate philosophy. German employees come from twenty-four different countries and four different continents, and their age range from 16 to 65 years old.

Diversity creates lots of benefits to employees, both in their daily life and in the relationships with their colleagues at work.
