Diversity within TNO

Within TNO, everyone must be able to feel at home and be given equal opportunities to develop themselves, regardless of gender, religion, orientation, cultural background and nationality. The central question here is: What do you need? An important element of the TNO Empower vision.

Within TNO, everyone must be able to feel at home and be given equal opportunities to develop themselves, regardless of gender, religion, orientation, cultural background and nationality.

We strive for an inclusive learning and working environment in which we make use of the differences between us to stimulate our creativity, innovation and talent development as much as possible in order to realize the goals of TNO.

Diversity in thinking helps us in meeting our goals. By actively bringing together people of a different gender, age, nationality, we are more innovative and creative than homogeneous teams, we make better decisions and perform better in the long run. Striving for more international diversity also means a larger international talent pool to explore and more business opportunities in a larger international market.

For TNO more than enough reasons to include diversity and inclusion as a focus point in our five-year strategy of 2021-2024. In order to actively embed D&I (diversity and inclusion) in our organization and our behavior, TNO has appointed a D&I officer and a Diversity Steering Committee led by the Executive Board.

Nationality, sexuality and gender

As TNO we strengthen the knowledge base of the Netherlands by cooperating with internationally leading knowledge partners, companies and governments. With new international insights and technical solutions, we make Dutch society healthier and safer and ensure a sustainable and strong economy. This requires that there are two working languages within TNO: Dutch and English.

TNO employees are expected to be able to understand and use both languages at an appropriate level. Everyone has the opportunity to improve their language skills in Dutch or English through training. The choice of one of the two languages depends on the situation, but the starting point is that non-Dutch speakers can fully participate and understand what it is all about.

TNO wants to be a home for talent of all ages and genders. Through mentoring but also, for example, the Female Leadership Program, female colleagues are actively supported in realizing their ambitions.
