Inclusion Beyond the Work Culture

At PayPal, employees are encouraged to understand the complexities faced by people with disabilities and make products accessible to them. Employees can enroll for a dedicated session at the Accessibility Showcase, to understand and experience how PayPal is used by people with disabilities. Through this experience, they aim at integrating accessibility in every phase of product development. Supporting the visually impaired customers to browse the web content using text-to-speech software, using appropriate colors, providing captions and transcripts are few examples of how inclusion at PayPal goes beyond the work culture, but translates and reflects in their products and services.



PayPal in 90 seconds

The crispest and easiest way to get the latest in news at PayPal is to listen to their version of the news bulletin – PayPal in 90 seconds. Every Friday morning in India, starts with an email embedded with a video of approximately 90 seconds that brings together news from all sites in PayPal.

I can list a few reasons why PayPal is unusual in a positive way, firstly I feel in any modern-day organization it is very important to follow CSR, here at PayPal other than the normal new hire orientation day, there is a separate day wherein all the new hires are invited to join for events such as planting trees, painting government schools, cooking for underprivileged kids etc.
