A workplace where everyone feels included.

Diversity & Inclusion

The World Economic Forum is an equal opportunity employer, and committed to diversity and inclusion in all its people practices.

The Forum is also committed to creating a workplace and work environment that is safe, inclusive and productive for all its employees, including those with different mobility needs. All of our offices are built with employee safety in mind and are compliant with all occupational health and safety requirements in the geographies that we operate in.

In addition, the Forum offers rich employee assistance programs that are designed to offer employees and their families the support they need, from 24-hour helplines to medical benefits and leave policies.

The Forum also offers a process through which appropriate accommodation can be made for individuals with specific individual needs.

Global Health and Healthcare 

“In my team, I am given opportunities and recognized for the contributions that I make. My work has always been focused on improving the world, and the Forum has given me a platform where I am able to contribute globally, nationally, and locally.”

Reward & Well-being

We offer competitive salaries determined by role and level, and a comprehensive benefits package including generous health and retirement contributions.

The Forum also promotes and supports staff health and well-being, and wants to make its mission a reality in their daily environment. We are a non-smoking organization, and maintain smoke-free premises at all our offices worldwide.

As part of well-being, we encourage biking, walking, or taking public transport to work where possible, and provide incentives for choosing these options.


In addition to on-site fitness activities such as yoga classes, Forum employees take part in team sports including football, basketball, beach volleyball, and softball.

All our employees benefit from five weeks’ paid vacation in all locations.

Strategic Partnership

The team is constantly working in a high gear, and I like how dynamic the organization is. I appreciate that your voice is heard, no matter how junior you are. The structure is pretty flat, and you are consulted by people who are much more senior.

A Learning Organization

The Forum is a workplace like no other. It is at once an expert network, a think-tank, a consultancy, a not-for-profit and a platform for impact. Explore our videos on interesting topics here.

“The organization is very flat, and with that comes both pressure and opportunity. The stress and excitement that comes from it is unparalleled.”
