Convergint strives to foster a supportive, accessible, and inclusive environment in which individuals of different backgrounds and identities are able to realize their maximum potential within the company. Convergint recognizes that Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) create many opportunities for colleagues, along with establishing competitive advantages for the company. As Convergint continues to evolve, hiring and bringing in a more diverse, talented workforce will enable the company to continue achieving growth milestones.
In keeping with Convergint’s commitment to ensuring the company is a diverse and equitable place for all colleagues, leaders across the globe have been participating in a Diverse Hiring Practices training. This initiative, led by Vice President of Inclusion & Diversity Yaruba Tate, aimed to improve hiring practices across the company as a way to reinforce alignment with Convergint’s I&D principles. The training was meant to be collaborative, and colleagues engaged in the training were to leave with action items from each session intended to leverage in order to make change throughout the entire organization’s hiring process.
The training sessions, hosted by Guardian Quest, aimed to improve hiring practices across Convergint by making diversity a consideration at each stage of the hiring life cycle. Colleagues first joined as a group to test their knowledge on diverse organizations and barriers to inclusive hiring practices. Then, they broke into small groups discussing the unique and actionable three-step approach to challenging implicit hiring bias to help build a more diverse hiring plan.
