The year 2020 threw more curveballs than a Clippers playoff game. From lockdowns due to COVID-19 to increased awareness around systemic racism, we are all ready for a reset and uplift. One thing that certainly won’t go away with a vaccination, is the great need for social equity.
At PSI we pride ourselves in being a welcoming environment for talent from all cultural backgrounds. As an award-winning MBE (Minority Business Enterprise), we focus on recruiting the best talent for our wide array of clients.
“The PSI team develops relationships with companies that have the same values around diversity as we do,” stated Monty Ragland, PSI Vice President, Client Delivery. “Our recruiters and sales team assist our partners with diversity and inclusion efforts such as branding, education and internal diversity.”
PSI focuses on shaping workforce development in central Ohio through partnerships with institutions, companies and agencies that have similar values.
“Research has found that organizations that exhibit gender and ethnic diversity are, respectively, 15% and 35% more likely to outperform less diverse organizations,” stated Ragland. “Similarly, organizations with more gender and racial diversity bring in increased revenue, more customers, and higher profits.”
Organizations with diverse environments have increased job satisfaction amongst employees, increased levels of trust, and higher engagement levels. Not only do DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) programs lift morale and overall attitude on an employee level, but they also provide a multitude of benefits that can be seen at every level of the business.
“PSI is different than most other companies because we believe that companies are about the people, not just the bottom line/money,” said Ragland. “Our environment encourages open communication that allows for the entire organization to agree on a shared vision for success.”
At PSI, we have been focused on providing equal opportunities for over 28 years. We look forward to the new year and being able to grow our network of open-minded partners in greater Columbus.
