Diversity and Inclusion

Delivering on our diversity and inclusion promise

At Pontoon, we listen, understand, and drive the Diversity and Inclusion efforts of our customers, our colleagues, and our partners.

Looking beyond diversity

Putting action behind diversity and inclusion means looking beyond checking boxes and claiming diversity spend. We work with suppliers to incorporate candidate diversity such as race, gender, ethnicity, veteran status, and educational backgrounds. To be truly inclusive, we help leading companies successfully manage inclusive cultures that create equal opportunities for diverse talent.

Accountability and inclusion

At every level of our organisation and for every individual. Our strength lies in our people and their varied backgrounds. We capitalise on the fact that Pontooners come from different regions, countries, industries, and career paths. Diversity of experience and opinion challenges our preconceptions and hones our collective talents.

For our customers

We partner with our customers to ensure they achieve their diversity and inclusion priorities by working with affiliate organisations that specialise in representing diverse talent communities.

Adecco Group


As the workforce solutions leader, we believe our culture of inclusion enables us to best serve the needs of our clients and positively impact the lives of our associates and students. Together as one, we are the Adecco Group, and we are committed to making the future work for everyone.

Pontoon partnered with a diversity resourcing and inclusion consulting company – VERCIDA – to build our customers’ D&I strategies in Europe. We also utilise their site as a hiring channel to reach their intended candidate audience

For Our Colleagues

Awareness Education

Pontoon and the Adecco Group are equal opportunity employers, committed to making the future work for everyone. We are dedicated to bringing contentious awareness and education to our colleagues.

Diversity Committee

We have setup Pontoon’s Diversity Committee that works on company-wide DE&I strategy. It also provides Pontooners with an open and safe forum for sharing ideas and feedback.

Unconscious Bias Training

Our people actively participate in unconscious bias training, seminars that educate on systematic racism and have access to learning and development tools on how diversity impacts the work environment.

Open Dialogue

Our focus on creating an inclusive environment includes interactive sessions, listening tours, webinars, and small group sessions to encourage openness and safe discussions among peers.

Diversity Certified Partnerships

Benefits for our customers

We are proud to partner with Diversity Certified Suppliers who have demonstrated success in sourcing and recruiting diverse populations. Pontoon’s MSP programs manage over one billion dollars in annual diverse spend under management. This spend encompasses people of color, veterans and talent within the LGBTQ community.

By working with diversity suppliers, our customers achieve their diversity goals and benefit from higher levels of engagement, better rates, and quality of candidates. We have had great success in increasing supplier diversity for our customers.

As part of Supplier Diversity Advancement, we develop customised programs that maximise the supplier’s growth potential and increase their operational efficiencies. We created Supplier Diversity Roundtable as a forum for our diversity partners to grow their relationships with Pontoon.
