PILLARS

We have created a system with four major to make these ideas a reality

  • Increase staff diversity Talent stems from a variety of human traits and skills.
  • Serving a range of market needs Requires utilizing our diversity, which is essential for the success of our customers.
  • Embracing an inclusive cultureAcross the entire organization will help us to improve our inclusive workplace.
  • Support our communities To have a positive effect on the communities where we live and work, we must support them.

EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT

  • Chances to learn and develop
  • In order to cover the cost of approved business-related education and training, we nudge our employees to put their money into long-term professional development. And so, in order to assist people in obtaining on-the-job training and support, we provide unofficial advice from managers and partners.

  • Representation of clients
  • We are aware that changing policy presents a significant opportunity for improvement. The Harpcredit Office of Legal and Administrative Affairs encourages the creation of ethical regulations aimed at assisting people in realizing their financial aspirations.

    We train legislators, regulators, and senior branch officials at the international, state, regional, and local levels in our capacity as facilitators. On proposed legal and policy changes affecting investors, we offer our well-informed opinion. We also inform our staff members and clients about the significant part they can play in the formulation of public policy.

  • Involving our staff
  • We must go beyond simply fostering talent and career paths in order to support our employees' success. We're creating a diverse, connected company by empowering employees to celebrate their similarities and shared interests.

  • Putting employee health first
  • The welfare of the workforce is still a concern for HC. We have developed a thorough, all-encompassing strategy that offers competitive advantages, promotes learning and career development, and enhances monetary, physical, and mental well-being. We want to improve the HC as a place to work and make it more representative of the neighborhood where we live.

A comprehensive platform for all volunteer, gift-making, and grant-making activities, HC Gives Back was introduced in 2019. We want the HC staff to have more free time so they can interact with and serve the community. Because of this, we create opportunities for integrated service and provide paid overtime benefits through our Service Day plan.

Fostering racial and gender equality

The need for progress has grown as a result of riots and civil unrest in the US and other countries. We at HC are committed to the power of change and understand the value of diversity in ideas, backgrounds, and perspectives. We take a variety of steps against racial injustice and inequality, which we also consider.

These initiatives include promoting the acquisition, growth, and retention of diverse talent as well as making sure that various leaders are on the path to senior decision-making positions. We are reviewing the company's generosity and encouraging supplier diversity along with adherence to moral and human rights standards. As investors, we strive to affect positive change that enhances our clients' financial outcomes.


Diversity & Inclusion effort beyond HC
