In any company, but especially in multicultural and international companies, diversity and inclusion must be a priority. We strongly believe that these two qualities have the potential to result in better productivity, innovation, and creativity within a company. It also allows companies to get the best human talent possible which in turn helps us achieve our mission and main objective: To make coffee better, from every possible angle.
Caravela is a diverse company by nature. We have a presence in 11 countries around the world with export and import operations, and more than 200 people making up this team. We are made up of individuals from 14 different nationalities working at Caravela, we have many different mother tongues, cultures, races, accents, backgrounds, and educations, and because of these we hold different opinions, points of views and perspectives.
Having always tried to offer our customers a great diversity and variety of coffees and origins, it has by default always been a necessity for us to employ a multicultural team of qualified professionals, something which has been of great benefit to us. Having said this, we had never actively asked this diverse community whether they felt included, accepted or even marginalized at Caravela. For this reason, we decided to start working on our Inclusion and Diversity strategy to achieve four main goals:
- To continue improving the company’s working culture
- To create a safe and inclusive environment where everybody can be their own selves.
- To guarantee the wellbeing of all employees and their families for them to have a good quality of life and health
- To help all employees to thrive, grow personally and professionally and prosper.
