Who We Are

Keysight has a long history of advancing engineering to make the world a better place. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment where our global workforce of more than 14,300 employees can contribute equally to accelerating innovation that connects and secures the world. Together, we deliver state-of-the-art design and validation solutions to over 32,000 customers in more than 100 countries.

What We Believe

We believe everyone should be respected in the workplace and in their communities. We expect all employees and those with whom we do business to be treated with dignity and respect. We believe that in an inclusive environment that seeks unique points of view, innovation thrives. And we believe embracing diverse cultures and different ways of thinking is simply the right thing to do.

Vision & Strategy

An inclusive work environment is at the core of our competitive advantage. That’s why DEI values are part of the Keysight Leadership Model — which is the framework for how we run the company. DEI is also one of four CEO-level priorities with quantifiable goals and actions tracked by our leadership team and Board of Directors. Learn about our DEI focus areas:

Advancing STEM

We’re working to expand the pipeline of future engineers from all backgrounds through partnerships, sponsorships, and employee-led educational programs with key non-profit organizations.

Assembling a Diverse Team

We put recruiting programs in place to grow our talent pipeline of women and underrepresented groups to create a workplace that reflects the diversity of the world we live in.

Fostering Inclusion for Everyone

We work to build a workplace culture where everyone can be their best through employee engagement, inclusive policies, resources and practices, and leadership support.

Creating a Place to Thrive

We provide training and mentorship to support employee development at every stage of their career, continuously challenging ourselves to grow in our understanding of inclusion and how to harness our diversity.

Diversity and Innovation

Research has shown that companies with above-average diversity levels produce 45% of their total revenue from innovation. In comparison, companies with below-average diversity levels only generate 26% of their total revenue from newly launched innovations. In other words, diverse teams drive first-to-market technologies that enable companies to stay ahead of competitors. When teams are made up of employees from diverse backgrounds — and feel valued and encouraged to share ideas — innovation happens. In this article, we’ll discuss how diverse perspectives are contributing to the biggest technology trends.

Always Learning

Listening to our employees is key to strengthening our ongoing DEI efforts. The MyVoice survey program fosters transparency and a sense of belonging by ensuring we’re aligned with employee values and providing insights on how to prioritize our efforts.

Though we are moving in the right direction, we must continue to improve our efforts to create a more inclusive workplace. That requires transparency, holding ourselves accountable by setting and tracking aggressive goals, and implementing new DEI initiatives that involve all of our employees.

Future Goals

Starting May 2021, our annual hiring goals are as follows:

of global new hires are women (2020 was 31%)

of U.S. external regular hires are underrepresented minorities (2020 was 42%) 

of our managers will go through the Yale University Fostering Inclusion & Diversity program (goal of 100% in 2022)
