We want to provide the best employee experience in SaaS. That means making Hootsuite a place where everyone feels safe, welcomed, valued, and empowered to do their best work without compromising who they are.
Hootsuite pledges to honour equal pay for all employees, regardless of factors such as gender, sexual orientation, neurodiversity, age, race, or ethnicity.
Through measurable actions, beginning with annual Pay Equity Assessments, we aim to address and eliminate existing pay gaps within the organization.
By forming a dedicated committee that works closely with our Executive Team, we aim to integrate DE&I within every facet of our business.
In addition to educational initiatives, the committee helps ensure that Hootsuite is strategically aligned when it comes to prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
Real connection begins with learning about each other. Through our partners, we seek to learn and address the challenges faced by underrepresented groups. Their support also increases our pipeline of diverse talent, provides an opportunity to expand our network, and helps our leaders build diverse teams where everyone feels engaged and included.
Chief People & Diversity Officer | Hootsuite
At Hootsuite, we consider diversity and inclusivity throughout the employee lifecycle—from a prospective employee’s first point of contact, throughout the recruitment process, and well after hiring.
Throughout the hiring process, we ask candidates to raise any need for accommodation to help eliminate barriers to success and to keep our career opportunities accessible to all.
We make a donation to a charitable organization for every successful hire of a referral who self-identifies as a member of an underrepresented group. This aims to inspire diversity within Hootsuite, and better reflect the communities and customers we serve.
We provide standardized learning programs globally to create a fair and equitable employee experience - starting from your hiring process. Hiring@Hootsuite, Unconscious Bias, Challenging Your Bias and Building Inclusive Teams.
We’re wild about our health and wellness initiatives, and we know our people are wild about them too. Through these, we hope to create a safe space where employees can come exactly as they are and find the support they need to thrive in and out of the workplace.
We care about our people, but it’s not enough to just say that. On top of extended health benefits and lifestyle spending accounts, Hootsuite provides coverage for a variety of services where made available by law.

When it comes to DE&I in the workplace, we foster a culture of belonging through
conversations that deepen our understanding of diverse experiences.
Guest speakers from diverse backgrounds share their personal stories to challenge our biases, widen our understanding of experiences differing from our own, and support us on our journey to allyship.
Members of underrepresented groups within Hootsuite get the opportunity to sit with our CEO and Chief People Officer to share their experiences and help influence how we build a more inclusive workplace.
Taking the time to learn together reinforces Hootsuite's culture of belonging and supports employees in building a more inclusive environment for members of underrepresented groups.
