As we have reflected on the events of this past year and the effect it has had on our employees, clients and candidates, we realize there is much more to be done to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace.
We are fortunate to work in a profession that allows us to help many well-intentioned companies meet and hire exceptional and diverse business leaders. Studies have shown that diversity provides a distinct competitive advantage and is good for business. Companies that are more diverse outperform their peer groups in many key business metrics. It is our responsibility to inform our clients that studies have proven that diversity is good for business and to provide them with solutions to achieve their diversity aspirations through our traditional search and Leadership Pipeline Programs, which we developed ten years ago to help companies meet their DE&I goals. Diversity has always been a core value of HFA, however we recognize that we can and will do more to foster diversity, equity and inclusion within HFA.
