Paramus, N.J./FEBRUARY 1, 2019 As Black History Month begins, diversity has emerged as an official workplace imperative. Companies studying workplace trends feature it in their workplace predictions for 2019, and this has intensely taken shape at JBK.

2018 was a record year for companies seeking talented candidates with diverse backgrounds, and to create and execute on a strategy to build a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. Diversity provides access to a greater range of talent, not just those who belong to a particular world-view or ethnicity or some other restricting definition. According to the RSM, Erasmus University, despite a genuine will on the part of most major organizations to implement productive diversity strategies, few, have, to date, come up with something that really works

Today’s strategy of choice requires committing to three values, together known as DEI:

‚Ä¢  Diversity, so people of different backgrounds together make stronger teams;
‚Ä¢  Equity, so processes, procedures and resources are fair organization-wide, with equal pay for equal jobs;
‚Ä¢  Inclusion, so every individual is welcomed, valued and empowered to participate fully.

Commit to DEI and you will reap proven benefits. Let the team at JBK work with you to create and realize the most talented, and inclusive workforce.
