Our belief on Diversity and Inclusion: Diversity is Appealing

Did you know there are over 1000 different kinds of bananas out there? Each one brings something unique to the table, just like our people. We love that we’re all different; however, we have to admit that not all have been treated equitably in the past. Bananatag promises that however you identify you will always have equitable access and opportunity to succeed.

Our belief on Equity: Pay Parity

We believe in gender pay parity. We’ve taken a public pledge and worked to eradicate gender pay gaps (and gaps in other areas of diversity). We’re committed to bi-annual reviews and making corrections if we fall off track. Our aim is always a $1 to $1 ratio among all Bananas.

We’re certain that at Bananatag you’ll be able to have impact and create an inspiring career.
