Diversity and Inclusion

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

At Pontoon, we put expertise, energy, and enthusiasm into improving everyone’s chance of being part of the workplace.  

We respect and appreciate people of all ethnicities, generations, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, gender identities, and more.We do this by showcasing their talents, skills, and unique experiences in an inclusive environment that helps them thrive.  

Our duty

Pontoon works with customers to source talented candidates who represent historically underserved and marginalised groups. These individuals struggle with systemic discrimination that prevents them from living up to their potential at work.

Our duty is to eliminate harmful biases from the recruitment process and strengthen our clients’ workforce by hiring more women, LGBTQ+ persons, people of colour, persons with disabilities, veterans, and workers of various cultural, religious, ethnic, and educational backgrounds. We assist companies in creating inclusive work environments that offer equitable opportunities.

Our practice

In the new world of work, company cultures of diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just a nice goal to have – they are a necessity. We ensure accountability at every level of our organisation and for every colleague. The variety of our people’s backgrounds and identities allows us to serve our clients better.

Our internal Diversity Committee promotes advocacy from across the entire organisation. We host interactive learning sessions, listening tours, and small group discussions, providing our colleagues with an open and safe forum for communicating new ideas.

Our culture

Pontoon and the Adecco Group are equal opportunity employers committed to making the future work for everyone. We educate our colleagues, raising awareness on all things DE&I – and we do it continually, consistently, and strategically.

Our colleagues participate in unconscious bias training and seminars that guide how to combat racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and other forms of discrimination. As part of our continuous learning programme, everyone at Pontoon has constant access to learning and development materials.

How we support customers

Our clients get all the support they need to achieve their diversity and inclusion goals. We work with affiliate organisations that empower candidates from underrepresented and marginalised communities. 


Pontoon Solutions builds a culture where everyone has a chance to be part of the world of work. We celebrate the countless ideas and experiences that shape us as individuals and as an organisation.

Our vision is inspired by our employees who are proud of who they are. We value the unique contributions they bring to work every day. We know that our clients share that vision and we are ready to support them every step of the way.
