Episerver empowers businesses to scale through the most customer-centric approach to digital experiences. Episerver‘s 900+ partners and 700+ employees in offices around the globe are proud to help more than 8,000 customers enrich their customer lifetime value, increase revenue, and grow their brands. As an industry leader for over 25 years, Episerver governance understands that innovation stems from having a robust, diverse, and inclusive team.
"It has never been more important for businesses to understand their customers, and this requires that companies embrace diversity if they don't want to become extinct, says Alex Atzberger, CEO, Episerver. In fact, research shows that inclusive companies are 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market[i] and that companies with more diversity in management have a 19 percent higher revenue from innovation[ii]
Diversity is the lifeblood of companies. I have seen a direct correlation between the energy, passion, and empathy that a company has for its customers and diversity," says Atzberger. Every company wants to be more customer-centric. The first step is to look more like your customers so that you understand them better. This is what diversity is all about.
Episerver is committed to strengthening its corporate culture and employee experience as well. With offices in the US, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Germany, the UK, the Netherlands, Spain, UAE, South Africa, Australia, Singapore, and Vietnam, Episerver wanted to align with an organization that could support their diversity and inclusion efforts on a global scale.
