Arvato Financial Solutions is targeting applicants with reading, spelling, or arithmetic difficulties with a special job advertisement. The international financial services provider is working closely with the German Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Association (BVL) on this project.

For Arvato Financial Solutions, the diversity of its employees is a prerequisite for sustainable corporate success. When recruiting new talent, too, the company keeps addressing various target groups with a custom-tailored approach. Arvato Financial Solutions is now targeting a special job ad at applicants with dyslexia, or dyscalculia. To this end, the international financial services provider works closely with the BVL. “It’s important to us to reach our target groups in their everyday living environments and respond to their individual needs,” explains Kai Burr, Chief Human Resources Officer. “That’s why we are positioning ourselves on channels they are familiar with and making it clear that we really care about the strengths of each individual.”


To be used in the area of telephone processing

Under the motto “We have a weakness for your strengths,” the Bertelsmann subsidiary placed the job ad to coincide with Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Day on September 30. “Especially in the field of phone processing, we have many options for handling dyslexia or dyscalculia with various tools, and to enable those affected to enter our company on a full-fledged basis,” explains Michael Wagner, Director of Operations and Diversity Officer at Arvato Financial Solutions. The job advertisement was created in collaboration with the BVL, which has been committed to improving the living and working conditions of those affected for more than 45 years. “We are pleased that Arvato Financial Solutions is so committed to helping employees with dyslexia and dyscalculia and has even developed a special job ad for this purpose to mark the Action Day on September 30,” says BVL National Chairwoman Tanja Scherle.
