En esta empresa se estimula el inconformismo.
Jenny Bullen

Explanation:
Wouldn't call it non-conformism just in case (not something very much appreciated by most companies i'm afraid) but i would go for something that relates well to company world and you see every day in situations vacant anyway... Good luck :)

Explanation:
In this company, we promote uniqueness.

You could also use the term "confrontation", but I do believe
is better to use a positive connotation than a negative one.

individualism ....and other suggestions


Explanation:
Non-conformity is the noun, not non-conformism.

However, to use non-conformism in English would be a bit 'we promote people who rebel against (our/the) system/establishment' (not what any right-thinking capitalist wants, when it really comes down to it)

The equivalent idea is 'we promote individualism'; in other words, we want people whose ideas do not conform for conformity sake, but whose ideas are original and independent of the possibly pernicious influences of the standard 'company mann' (or woman).

Another word, stretching the meaning to its limit is 'creative' as in 'creative thinkers/thinking', 'imagination', imaginative thinking/thinkers'
