CyrusOne: DEI, Community & Culture

Social Responsibility

CyrusOne’s commitment to social responsibility includes embracing diversity and inclusion, building a world-class culture, and supporting community efforts within all areas of the company. What makes us exceptional is the respect our employees demonstrate for each other, each and every day. We live by the Golden Rule of respect for each other and the value that each of us brings in our different opinions and views. CyrusOne participates in a variety of programs and initiatives in order to uphold and further our commitment to diversity and inclusion, community efforts, and world-class culture, examples of which can be found below.

DEI Programs and Initiatives

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Training 

CyrusOne has done comprehensive, company-wide Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) training as part of our HR Roadshow. The training focused on embracing different cultures and ethnicities and engaging with our employees and customers in a way that reflects and respects their unique perspectives and experience. In addition to the DEI training, an annual refresher training course is completed by all employees. Each year, CyrusOne also hosts a Talent Day and Summit event that brings everyone together for leadership development and recognition of CyrusOne team members.

Annual Audit of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Efforts

Each year, CyrusOne utilizes an outside firm to audit our diversity and inclusion efforts to ensure that we are compliant with regard to the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) audit for the government. We monitor our diversity and inclusion statistics on a monthly basis and use this data when making pay and promotion decisions to ensure that we are continuing to increase representation. CyrusOne also celebrates many diversity days throughout the year that highlight all of the unique perspectives held within the company.

Members & Supporters of the Women’s Business Conference

The Women’s Business Conference is an empowerment conference for women that addresses social, cultural, economic, and political challenges that women experience in business through an interactive agenda. It provides development and networking opportunities for female leaders at CyrusOne who are members. For more information, click here.
