By providing a highly connected workplace, an inclusive and diverse environment, comprehensive health and wellness programs, robust professional development opportunities, and competitive compensation and benefits, we help more than 70,000 Cisco employees worldwide multiply impact both on the job and in their personal lives.
Cisco's career development project provides real-world experience and support to potential employees, boosting talent in the market and injecting Cisco with new energy, ideas, and perspectives.
We support telecommuting through technologies like the Cisco Virtual Office. Data and voice services, along with tools like Cisco WebEx, combine to create a home office experience comparable to working in a Cisco office. State-of-the-art facilities such as Cisco LifeConnections help employees maintain their health, wellness, and work-life balance. And facilities like our Cisco Globalisation Childcare Center in Bangalore help them balance their professional and personal commitments.
More than 80 percent of our employees participate in professional development and have collectively spent over two million hours in learning and training courses. Performance-based compensation rewards innovation, collaboration, and profitability. Highly skilled and motivated employees are critical to Cisco multiplying impact in both our industry and society--keeping them inspired is one of our highest priorities.
Our inclusive and diverse culture creates an environment that fosters innovation, creativity, and collaboration, which benefits both our employees and our customers. Cisco employee resource groups (ERGs) represent the diverse cultures and interests of our employees. They provide mentoring programs, community outreach, recruitment and networking opportunities, and support for wider company inclusion and diversity initiatives.
For instance, two long-established global women’s initiatives focus on women in technology at both Cisco and in the community. Through our Veterans Program, we seek to give military veterans career and educational opportunities as they transition to civilian life. Our commitment to inclusion in the workplace mirrors our companywide commitment to product accessibility; we seek to make our products and services accessible to and usable by people with disabilities.
