We know that Splunkers are made up of a million different data points. And we’re committed to cultivating a culture of inclusion and making Splunk a place where everyone can thrive. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) provide community for underrepresented groups and allies, offering support, mentoring and networking opportunities. We now have nine employee-led ERGs, including Pride, Womxn +, Veterans, Somos (Latinx), Black Employees and Mentors (BEAMs), Disabled=*True, Pilipinx, Natives, and Neurodiversity.
In light of new and unprecedented challenges throughout 2020, we rolled out a number of initiatives for Splunkers aimed at improving their home work environments and helping them through tough times. These included greatly expanded mental health benefits, flexible work schedules, an entirely new category of additional time off, and extra, company-wide holidays. For Splunkers at home with children, we compiled numerous parent resources, including tutoring materials for high school or college-age students, and added both live and on-demand activities such as coding, dance lessons, art classes and scavenger hunts.
