Diversity has always been a part of our company and our corporate culture. As different as the companies within the SIXT Group are, as diverse are the people who work for us. This diversity, which is expressed in criteria such as gender, origin, color of skin, religion, sexual orientation as well as in different abilities, education and personalities, is the engine of our success and the source of past and future innovations.
SIXT not only stands for strong brands, but also for strong values. As different as we are, we are united as a family. We demand and promote a corporate culture of acceptance, appreciation and respect in which everyone can develop their strengths and weaknesses, their personality and their ideas. This is DiverSIXTy.
Living diversity within and outside our company offers each of us the chance to learn from one another, to take on new perspectives and to see the world with different eyes. Productive cooperation is only possible if everyone is able to contribute themselves and their skills regardless of their personal background. I am committed to this, with the goal that one day we will no longer have to talk about differences and managing diversity, but that we will understand the uniqueness of difference as added value.Friederike Reichenberger
Executive Vice President global People Management
As a family owned company with 7,000 employees in over 110 countries, we live and promote interculturalism on a daily basis. Through targeted relocation measures and intercultural events, we create a culture of openness and mutual acceptance towards other cultures and support the holistic integration into our company network.
We take a clear stand against any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. We offer our employees a productive and open environment in which everyone can contribute and develop their personality and identity.
We stand for an open working environment in which religion of every kind is respected. Our Silence Room offers all employees a place of encounter and peace, where everyone can find the opportunity for prayer and meditation in a sheltered setting, so that they can practice their faith during their work.
It is our priority to give every employee space for their individual lifestyle, without gender playing a role. It is therefore very important to us to recruit well-trained and qualified women for our company, to actively promote them and to strengthen their positions. We also support our employees in reconciling family and career.
Regular get-togethers offer employees a networking and exchange platform on various diversity topics at the SIXT locations. They form the basis for measures and changes within our company.
By participating in the CSD Munich, Frankfurt and Berlin we set a clear sign for acceptance, cosmopolitanism and inclusion with our LGBT+ network.
The Silence Room offers employees of all religions a place of prayer and meditation. This enables all employees to follow their faith during their work and to integrate it openly into their daily work.
Within the Female Career Tandem, SIXT employees are accompanied in their professional and personal development by a female manager for over a year. The programme has now been extended to include male colleagues.
Regular events create places for intercultural encounters and, together with our training courses, sensitise participants to the various value bases that characterise our diversity.
SIXT is living diversity in all its facets. Since 2019 we belong to the signatories of the Diversity Charter or “Charta der Vielfalt” as it is called in German. With this, we would like to set a sign for diversity at the workplace and show that we are standing for an open work environment free of prejudice.
To me, DiverSIXTy is a public comment, a sign all of us are sending out together - that we want to live in and actively create and shape an open, inclusive and welcoming environment which is based on respect for one another - no matter where we are from, which color our skin has, which sex we have, whom we love, what or whom we believe in.Johanna Scheffer

For me, DiverSIXTy means sharing information, culture and experience in a respectful environment where people feel motivated and free to give their best. It's enabling people to see the world though different perespectives, so that we can all grow together.Romero Tavares
