Powering innovation through inclusion

Global Payments is committed and focused on creating a better tomorrow in our workplaces and communities. Empowering commerce for all means we’re always working towards a more diverse, equitable and inclusive culture than the day before. Because true innovation is best delivered with all perspectives reflected.

We aspire to give our team members what they need to thrive—fair treatment, access and advancement. It's something we work on each and every day.

INCLUSION

A culture of inclusion and belonging

We encourage our team members to be authentic—creating a culture of belonging we are proud to be part of.

Commerce

We’re in the business of growing businesses

By forging diverse partnerships and promoting equitable treatment, we have earned the trust of more than four million small- and medium-sized businesses, 1,500 financial institutions and 4,000 tech partners in 100+ industries.

Diversity, like technology innovation, globalization and scale, is our business imperative. Powering global commerce across communities starts and continues with a diverse workforce and leadership committed to inclusion.

“Championing DEI benefits everyone. It makes us a better business—more alert to empathy, problem-solving and innovation. All traits we thrive on.”

Bob Cortopassi
President, International Merchant Solutions and Vertical Markets

Strengthening global commerce starts with diversifying it

We're committed to supporting the purchases of goods and services from diverse businesses—those owned by minorities, women, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, disabled individuals, veterans and small enterprises.  

We actively support and participate with advocacy agencies in the development and certification of diverse companies, including membership in numerous organizations.

People

Our team—people who make a difference 

We’re taking critical next steps to ensure our workforce reflects the diversity of the markets we serve. A more diverse workforce is how we start, and it doesn't end there. Our journey is about making sure everyone feels valued for the unique perspectives they bring to the table.

“You can have the most diverse workforce in the world, but if your team members do not feel seen, valued, respected and included in the success of the company, it will limit your ability to succeed. With an inclusive and diverse workforce, the possibilities are endless.”

David Green
SEVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary

Global commerce.
Global team. 

Diverse perspectives are what cultivate our understanding of the world. The innovations we deliver are as strong as our team’s unique viewpoints and experiences. It’s why 'People Who Make A Difference' is at the top of our values.

Our ~27,000 team members are worldwide—across 80 nationalities, 41 countries and 16 languages. As we grow, our people grow with us.
