Over the past ten years, Tipalti has committed itself not just to revolutionising financial operations and global payments automation, but also to changing how inclusivity is championed within the workplace. “Our goal”, says Steve Hunt, Tipalti’s London-based Chief Human Resources Officer, “is to create opportunities without barriers. At Tipalti, amazing opportunities exist for those who seek them. You’ll be consistently provided with the chance to learn new things and be empowered to take ownership, regardless of your background or position within the organisation.” Chat with anyone at Tipalti, and they’ll tell you that one of the best parts of working there is the people you’ll encounter. Collaboration, winning together and a collective attitude to success shape the company’s workplace culture. And in an environment where people are valued for who they are and what they bring to the table, it is easy to see how diversity thrives. Tipalti's executive team includes individuals from various backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders, who together contribute to a more holistic and inclusive decision-making process. Beyond leadership, Tipalti recognises that fostering diversity starts at the grassroots level. The company has implemented robust diversity and inclusion programmes aimed at recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. Its Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), such as its #intheblack, #rainbowroom and #women_at_tipalti communities, offer further platforms to educate, support and champion causes that matter. “As a Tipaltian, I am proud of our diversity, particularly the large number of women that we have in strategic roles. We are actively fighting the gender gap in SaaS. Tipalti does not just pay lip service to diversity. We live it!” says Gabriel Telavivi, an engineer at Tipalti’s Tel Aviv office. In addition to promoting diversity within its own ranks, Tipalti is actively working to create opportunities for underrepresented groups in the broader tech ecosystem. In London, Georgia Fahey, who leads Tipalti’s UK go-to-market recruiting, has promoted recruitment outreach, partnering with the award-winning community enterprise We Rise, to enable young people from underrepresented groups to learn more about career opportunities in fintech. At Tipalti, the demands of building a successful company within an ever-changing fintech ecosystem do not preclude opportunities for personal growth and development. Whether it’s being promoted to lead a team early on during your journey with the company, or leading global, cross-functional projects, Tipalti prides itself on providing employees with the opportunity to grow and thrive. And some of this comes from valuing individuals in their entirety. As Yaara Wertheim, one of Tipalti’s many female product leaders, comments, “At Tipalti, we are constantly presented with opportunities to learn, grow and participate in new strategic initiatives. I have seen my career take off at Tipalti, having joined the company as a Product Manager, and later being promoted to Director. Tipalti has also allowed me to balance my personal and professional commitments. I have three children and through my experience, I am able to demonstrate to them that women can have very successful careers in tech.” Read more articles like this in The Financial Technologist.
