Consequently, it only feels natural to look to those in higher education institutions with backgrounds and cultures different to ours. We have two big goals ahead of us. One is to attract the best possible talent to bring into the industry and the other is to introduce new ideas to our current employees. The industry we are involved with experiences constant changes in its horizons and abilities. By including more diverse and digitally native generations in our company's composition, they will act as a catalyst for more development, better research and greater ideas."
