By applying the same shared values that unleash prosperity in free societies—such as value creation, integrity, responsibility, free speech, and toleration—we encourage one another to take initiative and challenge the status quo. Informed by the principles that allow a free and open society to flourish, PBM® prepares individuals to innovate, improve, and transform while fostering a healthy, growing organization that creates long-term value for its clients and supporters and fulfilment for its employees.

WOMEN's INFOR NETWORK - WIN

We’re working to close the gender gap in tech—at all levels and in all roles. One way we’re getting there is through Women’s Infor Network (WIN), a program focused on recruiting, mentoring, and supporting Infor women and cultivating their talents into leadership positions. The mission of WIN is to prepare and support women for leadership at Infor. Whether you are male, female, or gender non-conforming, everyone has a role to play in helping build a company and culture that mentors and supports women and celebrates their contributions. More inclusion and diversity means better conversations, more learning opportunities, and faster progress. Together we can create a forum in which we can talk openly and inspire each other. Together we can achieve more.

CAREERS FOR ALL

Infor provides a support network to champion and promote inclusion for Inforians with disabilities and by helping veterans transition their skills to the workplace. We recognize that discipline, integrity, and commitment to excellence are assets that will add significant value to our company. We actively seek the best and brightest talent to identify openings that will be a good fit for their specialized skills and knowledge. Our goal is to increase awareness of the positive outcomes of hiring, retaining, and celebrating the many contributions of employees.
