Nov. 1, 2022 | HANOVER, MD
TEKsystems named to Index for commitment to inclusion and diversity in the workplace
TEKsystems, a global provider of technology, business and talent solutions for more than 80% of the Fortune 500, today announced it has been named to the 2022 Seramount Inclusion Index, which recognizes organizations who have established inclusion, diversity and equity (IDE) best practices to create inclusive workplaces. Seramount evaluates hundreds of companies annually with increasingly high standards for IDE progress each year. This is the second consecutive year TEKsystems has been named to the Seramount Inclusion Index.
TEKsystems values giving voice and access to diverse perspectives in equal and inclusive ways. By seeking out and embracing diverse backgrounds, TEKsystems leverages differences and fosters full participation of every employee. To achieve this goal, TEKsystems’ commitment to inclusion, diversity and equity includes a combination of active strategies to recruit, mentor, support and promote a diverse workforce.
“Our teams across our organization have worked together to make our employees feel included and supported to show up as their best selves—inclusion is a core value to our company,” says Franklin Reed, executive director for global inclusion, diversity and equity at TEKsystems. “While we continue to learn and make progress on our IDE journey, I’m proud of how far we’ve come and look forward to continuing to strengthen our efforts to cultivate an inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace for all.”
TEKsystems reinforces an inclusive culture so employees can show up as they are and achieve their goals, thereby uplifting their teams and contributing to the overall success of the company. The comprehensive programs in place at TEKsystems begin instilling the value of inclusion into employees during onboarding and continue with ongoing talent management, communication, professional development and leadership training. Additionally, TEKsystems has several employee resource groups (ERGs) and employee networks (ENs) dedicated to assuring that women, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, differently abled individuals and other underrepresented groups have a community and a platform to be heard. Led by TEKsystems President Jay Alvather and comprising leaders across the organization, the company’s executive inclusion board ensures that the foundations and values of inclusion, diversity and equity permeate throughout our overall people, operations and business strategies.
Now in its sixth year, the Seramount Inclusion Index helps organizations understand gaps in demographics, diverse talent strategies and corporate cultures. All organizations receive scores in three areas, including best practices, inclusive culture and demographic diversity. The index recognizes companies that use best practices in recruitment, retention and advancement of people for underrepresented groups. Organizations should create an inclusive culture through leadership accountability, clear communications and employee engagement. Finally, each company on the Index demonstrated improvement in demographic diversity for women and minorities, especially at more senior levels and in promotions.
“We are pleased to see corporations continue to focus on their DEI efforts’ effectiveness by evaluating their accountability measures through precise metrics that pinpoint any challenges and create opportunities for next steps,” says Katie Oertli Mooney, managing director of diversity best practices at Seramount. “We are proud to recognize our Inclusion Index companies for their progress and dedication to creating inclusive workplaces where all talent is valued and set up for their own success.”
