Evolving the Workplace

Our most valuable asset is our people. They make Xerox Xerox. Our commitment goes beyond our words. It shows in our actions: valuing diversity and inclusiveness, rewarding good performance, offering opportunities for learning and development, and achieving the right work/life balance.

Voice of the Employee Survey

For over 45 years, our senior teams have surveyed employees and acted upon that feedback. Our Voice of the Employee (VOE) survey was administered in October and November 2015. We received results from 61 countries in 20 languages. Nearly 66,000 employees shared their thoughts and knowledge from every division, every job function* and every job level. The chart below represents the percentage of satisfied employees.

2011 74%
2012 77%*
2013 73%

*In 2012, the survey was distributed to around 14,000 employees in Europe, Canada and our developing markets. All other years reflect a larger global population.

Employee Diversity — Female Employees

We gain a competitive advantage as we continue to draw on the experience and creativity of a well-balanced, diverse workforce. That means we’re better able to understand and meet changing demands for our products and services. Simply stated, a balanced workforce makes good business sense.

In the U.S., 60 percent of employees are women, and women represent 32 percent of executive and senior-level managers. Diversity reporting is not tracked in most other countries.

The chart below displays the percentage of executive and senior-level managers who were women over the past four years in the U.S.

Employee Diversity — Minority Employees

Employees with different ways of thinking — and different ways of perceiving our world — are employees who create innovative solutions. In a business like ours, whose lifeblood is fresh ideas, this variety of perspectives is a priceless resource and a key to achieving critical business results.

Minorities represent 48 percent of employees and 15 percent of executive and senior-level managers in the U.S. Diversity reporting is not tracked in most other countries.
