“At BASF, it’s about the power of diversity, equity and inclusion helping us better reflect the markets and customers we serve. The strength of BASF is our people and the way we work together, the quality of thought that we bring to solving customers’ problems. Benchmarking our performance against top-performing companies on the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 helps us gain meaningful metrics and best practice insights to drive growth.”

From the Company

At BASF, promoting and valuing diversity across all levels and dimensions is an integral part of our business strategy and is embedded in our corporate values and code of conduct.

In order to deliver the diversity in our workforce required to innovate and to offer the best solutions to our customers, BASF requires that 50% of the people interviewed for all roles, as well as 50% of those doing the interviewing, must reflect the diversity we seek in the market.

Equally strategic, deliberate and intentional in leveraging the value of our diversity through inclusion, we have set and communicated expectations for an inclusive culture at BASF based on respect for all. Rigorous programs are in place to increase accountability and drive tangible, measurable change across BASF in six areas based on employee feedback: leadership action, cultural education, key performance indicators, compliance excellence, talent and D+I practices and building community connection.

In the past year, BASF has been recognized as a Fair360 Top 50 Company for Diversity and achieved a 100% compliance ranking on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index measures of best places to work for LGBTQ+ employees.

At BASF, diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of our corporate values. Underscoring this continued commitment, BASF is proud to be named a Top 50 company for Diversity.
