Overview

We are proud of our employees– the core and strength of our business. Diversity, equality and inclusion are part of our key priorities. We want to diversify our workforce and player base while promoting equal opportunities and inclusion for everyone – regardless of gender, age, nationality, race, religion or political opinion. If something isn’t what it should be, we empower our employees and our players to speak up. We are committed to creating a fun and inclusive culture while providing a safe and healthy working environment that helps people thrive and develop at MTG.

Governance

Our Code of Conduct clearly states the ambition to create and promote diversity, equality and inclusion within MTG and our portfolio companies and to maintain a safe working environment that promotes physical and psychosocial well-being.

Diversity, equality and inclusion

We know that companies that have a diverse workforce, who treat their employees equally and include everyone, are more creative, innovative and competitive than those who don’t. We also need a diverse workforce to understand and develop products that attract global consumers. To encourage young people to get interested in the digital world at an early age, our companies work together with local universities and schools to increase their interest in tech and to showcase all future opportunities.

Female and non-binary employees are under-represented in the technology and gaming industries. We want to be an active part in changing this, including changing the perception that technology and gaming industries have working conditions that aren’t family-friendly or sustainable over time.

We want and need to improve on our gender representation; therefore we have a target of reaching a 40% gender balance of employees that identifies as female and non-binary in the workforce. We recognize that diversity includes multiple aspects beyond gender, such as nationality, age and languages spoken, among other things. We decided to focus on gender following our materiality analysis conducted in spring 2022.

Organizational health

We believe that our employees are the core and strength of our business. We want them to develop and thrive in their career, while promoting a good work-life balance where we continuously try to challenge ourselves and improve conditions, including offering flexible working hours, additional leadership training and the possibility to work from home.

Like any company, we have areas that need extra attention to make us even better, such as more information sharing, greater clarity when it comes to overall goals and more follow-up. We have decided to measure our organizational health to further understand our organization, employees’ needs and areas of improvement.

Enhance a more diverse workforce

In 2021, 24% out of our total workforce identified as female and non-binary. At a middle-and top management level, the representation decreases to 17%. Our target is to annually increase the representation and reach a level of 40% representation of employees who identified as female and non-binary. We will measure and report on our progress from EOY 2022.

Improve our organizational health

To identify areas of improvement and measure our organizational health we are to start analyzing the organizational health in 2022, and from there set out a defined target to work toward to ensure we continue to improve.
