Do Better, Hire Better: Building Teams That Reflect Our Communities

Written By Hannah Risser-Sperry | Oct 16, 2020

As a staffing agency, we’re considered experts when it comes to hiring. While we think that’s true, we also know enough to raise our hands when we’re not sure the right way forward.

We are in a moment of profound change: people on the internet are asking to see leadership teams and businesses are trying to hire employees of diverse backgrounds. There is a lot of work to be done to ensure that workplaces represent the communities in which they operate, and we know this is not something we can simply hire our way out of.

So, we’ve raised our hands: we need help to serve our candidates and clients, and we know we’re not alone in that. We’ve tapped some experts to talk us and you through these topics, and help all of us find our way forward while being ethical, compassionate, and purposeful. Come learn alongside us.
