Hatch staff in our South Africa offices celebrated Heritage Day with events to recognize the diversity of our employees
Heritage Day is celebrated annually in South Africa on September 24. The purpose of the day is to recognize and celebrate South Africa’s cultural wealth and diversity, and inspire all citizens to take pride in living in a country where diversity is embraced and participation in dialogue around cultural differences is encouraged.
Hatch celebrated the day by hosting Heritage Day events simultaneously around the country. Employees donned traditional outfits from their own nationalities and shared a meal together of traditional dishes from the employees’ many cultures.
A poll taken of our South African colleagues showed that more than 40 countries are represented in our employees—an illustration of Hatch’s diversity and inclusion at work. Events like those organized for Heritage Day are an important part of how we encourage inclusivity and recognize the diversity that adds strength to our workplace. We believe that a diverse and fully inclusive work environment fosters a plurality of thought and perspectives that solves problems and creates value for our clients in our industry, for our communities, and in the world at large.
