Deluxe’s Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity & Equity

Strategy

Deluxe recognizes inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) as an internal and external business imperative. We promote and sustain a culture of inclusion across the organization to strengthen our brand.

Vision

At Deluxe, inclusion, diversity and equity are authentically reflected in all that we do.

Mission

To empower people to bring their full authentic selves to work as One Deluxe and foster an environment that reflects the diverse communities we serve.

We are committed to driving meaningful change in our workplace at Deluxe. Not only are we committed to a more inclusive work environment, but we’re creating a more diverse environment that benefits all employees. What started with our Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Task Force has been elevated with newly created roles that help us to strategically leverage diversity and inclusion to accelerate Deluxe’s mission to power prosperity around the world.”

Employee Resource Groups

In 2020, Deluxe formed its Employee Resource Committee and established four Employee Resource Groups dedicated to fostering inclusion and diversity at Deluxe. In doing so, we have accelerated understanding across the Deluxe family and have expanded our own diversity and inclusion efforts.

In the same year, Deluxe added four new Employee Resource Groups, bringing the total number to eight. Additionally, each group has a dedicated member of our executive leadership team who champions the cause. Our executive leaders meet with their respective groups on a quarterly basis to offer support and share insight.
