I just want you to know
In light of recent events, I feel compelled to reiterate that I and my companies do not tolerate discrimination in any way, shape or form - even if we disagree on an issue.
While our hiring practices encourage diversity, I endeavour to always employ the people I think are best for the job, irrespective of any personal factors, as the quality of our products and services is paramount to the companies overall success. This applies for our operations in every country where we currently operate, and will extend to any new country where we might start services in the future.
We strive to ensure that all Hayai workplaces are safe-zones for all employees, and believe that employees and contractors in the field are entitled to the same protections as on-premise employees. As such, any abuse committed by any employee against another OR toward any employee will result in immediate disciplinary action and/or will result in the appropriate authorities becoming involved.
This does not mean that Hayai workplaces will be free of fun and vibrancy - I don't want to foster an atmosphere of "political correctness gone mad", I simply want to ensure that anyone working with or for Hayai can be free to be themselves without judgement, fear or violation of their personal liberties.
I also want to make a committment to the general public that I expect any and all employees and contractors to do their best to help or protect anyone who suffers intimidation or a derogatory act of any kind, should they witness one (even if on they're on their way to or from work or a job-site).
I personally would also like to hear about any positive acts performed by our staff should you notice anyone in a Hayai uniform doing something that might be worth recognizing.

P.S. I've printed a memo sent by GrubHub CEO Matt Maloney to employees, as well as a clarification - the message is along similar lines.
