Diversity & Community Affairs
Huron's ability to grow as a company depends on the way we treat our people, how we enrich our communities, and how well we serve our clients. We are devoted to collaborating with colleagues, businesses, clients, and communities to drive corporate social responsibility — doing the right thing for our constituencies — in everything we do. Through the efforts of our employees, Huron will grow profitably and responsibly in all parts of our business and in all geographies where we live and work. With that as a foundation Huron's corporate social responsibility efforts are centered around Diversity & Inclusion and Huron Helping Hands.
In this podcast, Patty Olsen, Chief Human Resources Officer at Huron and Dr. Isaac Dixon, Associate Vice President of Portland State University explore the relevancy of affinity groups with Cindy-Ann Thomas of Littler Mendleson.
Take a look at the 2017 Diversity & Community Affairs By the Numbers to see how our culture and community efforts have made an impact, both externally and internally.
Diversity & Inclusion
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 work-force, we can better meet the needs of our clients and create opportunities for all of us. 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 our clients.
Huron Helping Hands
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.
Huron's Day of Service
In May, we held our 7th Annual Day of Service. Nearly 1,800 Huron employees participated in 118 projects within 94 organizations in 50 locations around the globe. Employees made an impact in their communities by making 184 blankets for kids in hospitals, packing 74,300 individual meals to be distributed to across the globe, coaching and mentoring more than 1,100 youth and providing hundreds of families with access to food, shelter and other necessities.
