At PagerDuty, we believe that people do their best in a culture that fosters inclusion, innovation, and success. Our values - Champion the Customer, Take the Lead, Run Together, Ack + Own and Bring Yourself - serve as the foundation of our collaborative and dynamic culture. Whether it’s conducting a retrospective, participating in our monthly Hackdays, cranking out a new product feature, supporting our two PagerDuty bands, or doing our day to day work, Dutonians live and breathe these five values every day. Together, we solve real customer issues and fulfill our mission of connecting teams to real-time opportunities and elevate work to the outcomes that matter.
Our industry, company and success are built on diversity and access to people with greatly needed skills and perspectives from all over the world, from every age group, gender, lifestyle orientation, region and academic discipline. As is true with many great technology companies, our teams, our partners and our customers collectively form a community that is richly diverse and we are better for it.
One way we have “walked the talk” is through implementing systemic changes to ensure gender pay equity, which we achieved last year and will maintain. At PagerDuty, male and female team members are compensated equally, within 1-2 percent, job for job.
Our new parental leave policy is one of the most generous in our industry. We’ve set our paid U.S. parental leave allowance to 22 weeks with total job security, compared to an estimated industry average of 13-14 weeks. We also provide 12 weeks of paid parental leave for non-pregnant parents, including adoptive parents. We are incredibly proud to have made it more possible for all of our team members on “BabyDuty” to have the much-needed time off to care for and spend with their new child.
Additionally, we actively invest in creating and maintaining the right on-the-ground environment where all employees can “kill it,” flourish, grow, and transform. We believe it’s our responsibility to develop and prepare the next generation of industry leaders. We must equip them with the foundational leadership skills and knowledge to match the pace of change in the world. To set our teams up for success, we’ve launched new leadership and manager training programs to include modules that specifically touch on owning your career and innovation and design thinking.
Another way that PagerDuty invests in developing an inclusive culture is through our Employee Resource Groups, such as SisterDuty, our group supporting women at PagerDuty. Since rolling out, the women of SisterDuty have done some amazing work, including creating a range of mentoring networks and giving back to their local communities by volunteering at “hack days” and mentoring young women in STEM.
