Experience a World of Diversity at Mphasis

DIVERSITY
and INCLUSION

At Mphasis we understand that everyone is unique and the diverse background that they come from adds to the plethora of point of views and experiences that our employees bring to the table. It is this ideology of embracing difference and ensuring that we respect and treat all with dignity, that has led to Mphasis being an equal opportunity employer.

While we understand and are aware that all aspects of diversity needs must be given equal importance, at Mphasis we have picked 2 focus areas on which a gamut of initiatives have been planned and executed in the past and are lined up for the future. These focus areas are Gender & Disability.
