We’re working to provide the right support and protections for employees and everyone across our supply chains.
We know that we need to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace for everyone who works for and with SteelSeries. With this in mind, we surveyed people throughout our workforce to find out how we’re doing and where we most need to make changes. We’ve set up employee committees around women, LGBTQ, and other under-represented groups, and we’re taking steps to build a more inclusive culture and improve how we do recruitment and career development.
The SteelSeries Board of Directors gained Pernille Fabricius, its first woman member, in 2021.
We take a stand for civil and human rights and donate to Black Lives Matter, The Trevor Project, and other organizations that are working for social justice.
All of our employees get two fully paid days off each year to volunteer in their local communities, and employees who donate to charities of their choice can apply to have the donations matched by SteelSeries.
We support the My Block, My Hood, My City social initiative in Chicago by volunteering to help underrepresented groups build tech skills.
Our codes of conduct commit all SteelSeries suppliers to follow international standards on child labour, forced labour, discrimination, anti-corruption, and bribery.
Most of our large retail and e-tail partners have their own strict codes of conduct and require regular audits to check that the SteelSeries products they sell are manufactured in socially and environmentally responsible ways. We work to ensure we meet, and where possible exceed, all these standards.
We’re taking steps to further improve female representation across SteelSeries. In 2020, 34% of our workforce was female and 66% was male.
We’re in the process of registering with international bodies such as Sedex which set global standards for sustainable and responsible business practices across supply chains. This will give us access to best practice tools and services to help us better manage and further improve working conditions in our supply chain, prevent bribery and corruption and ensure we keep the environment intact for future generations.
