    In the May-June 2021 issue of Staffing Success Magazine, the Member Sound Off section highlighted ASA members who answered the question, What are you doing to make diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) top-of-mind in your company and/or in the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry? 

    We received so many responses we were unable to feature them all in the magazine. We felt these stories should be heard.

    Vice President, Business Development and Account Management, TorchLight Hire

    What are you doing to make diversity, equity, and inclusion top of mind in your company and/or in the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industry? 

    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a core pillar for our company this year and beyond. We’re committed to listening and learning from underrepresented populations and elevating new perspectives and voices as a core operating principle.

    That starts with educating our team to recognize their own biases, however uncomfortable that may be. It continues with transforming our recruiting and overall business practices to ensure that everyone gets a fair shot, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, veteran status and others. And it extends to sharing what we’re learning to our clients with the goal of helping them recognize how crucial DEI is to team and organizational success.

    We know DEI is not a destination—it’s an ongoing effort to level the playing field and bring fairness and opportunity to all. We are striving to be part of the solution in as many facets of the hiring and staffing process as we can.

    Do you have a story to share? Contact me directly via ASA Central or at hjones@americanstaffing.net to be featured.
