Building for the Future
2022 was a transformative year for Splunk, marked by the continued growth of our business and the ongoing investments in building and enabling our hybrid workplace. And we doubled down on centering Splunkers in our employee experience efforts with enhancements to our mental and physical wellbeing benefits, new opportunities for career development and internal mobility, and the introduction of new opportunities to share context, build connection and grow community across our global and distributed workforce.
Similarly, we made meaningful investments to grow our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) capability, building on Splunk’s rich DEI legacy while laying the groundwork for a new vision for the future of DEI at Splunk with belonging at its center. We hired a new Chief Diversity Officer in January 2022, expanded our function and focus from DEI to DEIB – Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging –and developed the strategy, structures and systems necessary to enable the scaled and sustainable growth of DEIB at Splunk worldwide.
Throughout this period of transformation and growth, we maintained our focus on growing representation, elevating and celebrating the rich diversity of our people, and strengthening Splunk’s unique and inclusive culture so that all Splunkers are able to be themselves, do their best work and thrive.
We are pleased to present our fourth Diversity Annual Report, which outlines our progress over FY23 and identifies opportunities for continued investment and growth. While we are proud of our progress, we know our work is far from done and there are still areas where we can improve and grow. We recognize DEIB is a multi-year journey and laying a solid foundation is essential to building enduring growth and a lasting culture of belonging for all Splunkers. To that end, we remain firmly committed to building the people, systems and enterprise capabilities needed to accelerate our progress and achieve our DEIB ambitions.
