Culture and Community
At Huron, we are committed to creating and maintaining a work environment that values and fosters diversity and inclusion. By recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse workforce, we are better able to meet the needs of our clients and create opportunities for all. Our ability to attract and retain exceptional professionals with diverse backgrounds and life experiences helps us bring more innovative, creative, and unique ideas and approaches to how we deliver excellent service and solutions to clients.
Diversity is about more than differences in race, gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity. It's about inviting an array of ideas, experiences and perspectives into our company. Our clients are expecting Huron to deliver excellence. We understand excellence is all about bringing the best people together and recognizing a need for broad ranges of skills, abilities and experiences to develop and deliver the solutions our clients have come to expect.
Huron’s Diversity & Inclusion Council provides leadership with the framework and resources needed to allow Huron and its clients to realize the benefits of a diverse and inclusive organization. One way we foster this is through employee resource groups, known as iMatter teams. These teams work directly with the Council to identify strategies that enhance diversity and foster inclusion, while creating a greater sense of community within the company.

Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is in our DNA. Our philanthropic program, Huron Helping Hands, consists of civic sponsorships, community service work, pro bono activities and a matching gifts program. Our activities are a combination of employee causes the company supports and corporate-led events.
In May, we held our 5th Annual Day of Service. More than 1,400 Huron employees participated in 94 projects within 86 organizations in 55 locations around the globe. Employees logged more than 4,300 service hours to these organizations — ranging from interacting with more than 600 children through play and tutoring, to preparing, serving, and/or bagging more than 19,000 meals. To see Helping Hands in action, check out the 2016 Year in Review video.
