Once again this year Cisco was among the prize winners of the annual survey into the ‘Best Employers in Belgium’. Our company carried off a special prize for diversity. Not for the first time, by the way: we also won the prize in 2007.

For the fifth year in a row, we made it into the top ten in the category of companies with more than 500 employees. And we achieved the highest score of the ICT companies in this category.

These tremendous achievements are to the credit of all our staff, whom I’d like to thank wholeheartedly. They are the ones who demonstrate every day that diversity at Cisco is not just empty talk but something simply in our genes. And they are also the ones who continue to spread our open, inclusive business culture with enthusiasm to the outside world. That’s why I have great pleasure in dedicating this prize to them. And I have no doubt that we will continue this great tradition next year.
