The importance of Diversity and Inclusion at PayU


As a global and multi-cultural organization with varied ethnicities thriving across locations, we realize that our responsibility towards fulfilling the D&I commitment is huge. Therefore, we continuously strive to create a diverse, inclusive and safe environment, for all of our people, communities and customers. Our leaders are committed to create an inclusive work culture which enables transparency, flexibility and unbiased attention to each and every PayUneer so they can succeed, irrespective of gender, color or personal faith. An environment where every person feels they belong, that they are listened to, and where they are empowered to speak up.

At PayU we have zero tolerance towards any form of prejudice whether a specific race, ethnicity, or of persons with disabilities or the LGBTQ communities.

PayU Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives


Breaking down stereotypes

We enjoy dialogue at PayU and to discuss our culture through the D&I lens. One of the ways we do this is through our series of engaging fireside chats throughout the year and across our organizational globe on topics like PayU Women in Leadership, LGBTQ in Tech, Female industry leaders and their careers, Intercultural collaboration etc.


Inclusive hiring

We are always on the lookout for talented people who want to be inspired, and also want to inspire us! We encourage all styles of working and all styles of thinking and have numerous initiatives in place to be inclusive in our recruitment processes. Examples include our collaboration with Women in Technology and our successful Second Innings Program.


D&I training

We believe in the concept of growth mindset and understand that learning about Diversity and Inclusion is an ongoing and ever evolving process. We partner with top universities as well as subject matter experts from the D&I field to provide our PayU colleagues with trainings on Unconscious Bias, Building Inclusive Leadership Skills, Dignity at Work and many more interesting topics. Together we keep learning and improving!

Embracing Pride & Celebrating the LGBTQ community at PayU

As a global organization operating across multiple cultures, PayU is focused on nurturing an inclusive culture and promoting inclusive behaviors. Our core values of openness and courage are a reflection of how we walk the talk – we appreciate openness and honesty and are proud of every PayUneer, who has the courage to bring his/her/their real self at work each day.


At PayU we are committed to creating a safe haven where any PayUneer feels secure to live with their true identity, on their own terms.” – join Mario Shiliashki, CEO PayU GPO, & Prashanth Ranganathan, CEO PayU Credit LazyPay, as they officially introduce PayU’s global Pride Month celebration.
