Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Walt Disney Company is committed to developing and retaining a diverse workforce, fostering a company culture that is welcoming and respectful, creating content and experiences that resonate with our global audiences, and collaborating with community organisations to make our industries more accessible to all.
BUSINESS EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS (BERGS)
Disney is proud to support a large network of Business Employee Resource Groups (BERGs), our voluntary, employee-led groups formed around shared identity, interests, and pursuits. BERGs are key partners in cultivating an inclusive culture and a sense of belonging for Disney employees. They offer opportunities to network with peers, participate in outreach and mentoring programs, acquire new skills, enhance leadership capabilities, and drive cross-cultural business innovation. Our BERGs help facilitate inclusive conversations, creating space for employees to come together to share their experiences and show their support.
At Disney, volunteerism is a central and enduring part of our company’s culture and at the heart of our community engagement efforts. Our employees and cast members are passionate and involved citizens in their local communities and around the world, contributing their time and talents to causes great and small.
HEALTH AND COMPENSATION
Disney offers a competitive rewards package that includes pay, health, and savings benefits, time-off programs, family-building solutions, educational opportunities, and more—all designed to make each employee feel valued and cared for.
Together, these rewards make up a comprehensive package that helps employees live their best lives, grow personally and professionally, and take advantage of the special extras that only Disney can provide—such as theme park admission, merchandise discounts, and more.
WELLNESS AND FAMILY RESOURCES
We have enhanced our mental health solutions by expanding our Employee Assistance Program to offer access to Unmind (an app to support mental health and wellbeing), facilitated the training for our human resources staff on mental health topics as well as offering employees across the business the chance to become a Mental Health First Aider. Our healthcare facilities are emblematic of best-in-class care, providing Disney employees, Cast Members, and their family members with quality well-being programmes and health services in a caring, convenient, and accessible manner. With the introduction of virtual health services and resources, Disney is making it even easier to get, stay, and be well.
The safety and well-being of our employees is a top priority in the decisions we make. We promote a culture of safety through the numerous quality assurance programs and safety standards we’ve established. For example, our Standards of Business Conduct include the process to report safety concerns and incidents.
We have dedicated safety professionals in areas such as COVID safety, food safety, ride safety, occupational safety, public health, training and development, and more. To help minimise workplace safety risks, we train employees on the safety aspects of their jobs and empower them to address any safety concerns immediately.
Learning and Talent Development
We continue to prioritize the ongoing development of our workforce, offering an array of opportunities to encourage our employees to be the best versions of themselves, professionally and personally. Disney offers a multitude of learning and talent programs, including but not limited to, online, instructor-led, and on-the-job opportunities, as well as leadership development.
