Finding The Opportunity In Diversity
+ Giving Back Where It Matters
We know how increasingly important Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives have become to companies and for a good reason. As you explore how to grow your business, how can you develop a more diverse team?
Tapping into a pool of talent from around the world is a great place to start.
Innovative Systems Group has the connections you need on this front, sourcing exceptional talent through our global partnerships to meet your DEI goals.
What benefits does a diverse workforce provide for a company? In our view at ISG, the more diverse the team, the more opportunities to offer inclusive work that fosters greater employee engagement. That, in turn, helps build a culture that’s optimal for collaboration, better ideas, employee retention and a host of other advantages.
As a minority-owned firm, it’s vital to us at ISG to continually implement mechanisms for creating an inclusive and thriving work experience for all employees.
These include but not limited to:
Establishing a program to engage job seekers that reflect a genuinely inclusive workplace
Educating our business leaders on Diversity and Inclusion, allowing our Talent Acquisition force to become more strategic in these efforts.
Enhancing the career development of all African-American employees by fostering inclusion through hiring, retention and growth.
Creating messaging of inclusion on website toward diverse job seekers
Establishing a Diversity Outreach Tracking Program
It’s a special thing to be able to open doors for the employees you care about and those organizations you support. Being recognized as one of the largest minority-owned IT Services firms in the Midwest by Crain’s Chicago Business brings that kind of advantage for us at ISG.
As a Minority Business Enterprise, we’ve put our people in a position to gain access to new client opportunities so they may potentially build relationships made to last.
We’re also certified as an MBE by the following organizations:
Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) under the Business Enterprise Program (BEP) State of Illinois
City of Chicago
Chicago Minority Business Development Council, Inc.
As a CMBDC certified organization, ISG has access and membership into the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Inc. (NMSDC), a network of over 40 regional councils in major cities across the United States.
The ISG way of doing things isn’t confined to being there for our clients and employees. It’s about taking the time to get involved in the organizations that strive to make our community – locally and globally – a much better one. Here are number of them that are Bringing The Best Together of our employees, friends and colleagues to help support our commitment:
