Here at Omobono, we’re working hard to build an environment that’s close-knit and supportive – a place where the person you are matters as much as the job you do. Last year, our D&I team led a company-wide initiative to include personal pronouns on email signatures. This year, we have continued to focus on mental health at work, diversity in the hiring process and how best to tackle unconscious bias at large.  We are also incredibly proud to work with an external workplace support group to really champion employee wellbeing: https://www.omobono.com/2020/08/09/world-mental-health-day-our-work-with-sanctus-2/
