Recruitment, Talent and Culture Development
When organizations employ higher degrees of racially and ethnically diverse employees, they perform 35% better than companies that claim to rely on a “culture fit” that tends to trend white and monocultural, according to McKinsey & Company. We expose companies to larger talent pools and help them unlock new audiences and profitability. Diverse organizations are 70% more likely to capture new markets than organizations that do not actively recruit and support talent from under-represented groups.
Our approach is through a lens of partnership, collaboration, and iteration.
