Diversity At HR
As a public service design and project delivery firm, Hurst-Rosche has recognized the importance of developing a diverse workforce that reflects the community demographics where our offices are located as much as possible. This allows Hurst-Rosche to better understand and respond to its public clients’ requests and concerns. Hurst-Rosche is committed to establishing a workplace where each employee is valued and encouraged to maximize their potential.
Hurst-Rosche’s Workforce Diversity Plan is a guiding document that is intended to:
Looking at the same data broken out by U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) job categories, the opportunities to increase racial diversity exist primarily in professional and technical jobs. In addition, the information reflects a potential to increase gender diversity in professional and technician positions.
To address these opportunities, our Workforce Diversity Plan includes objectives in the areas of policy and commitment, recruitment, hiring, employee development, training and accountability as noted below.
Policy & Commitment
However, Hurst-Rosche understands that workforce diversity is impacted by many factors and cannot solely be measured numerically. Other signs of success should include an increasingly broader, diverse applicant pool of qualified candidates, ensuring that job interviewers are trained, increasing participation in employment development programs, and providing quality training programs. We accept that no single policy, strategy, or plan will be sufficient. Rather, we are committed to understanding by all that the principle of diversity will be accomplished most successfully over time, through incremental changes and on-going corporate emphasis.
Since you are committing to making HR successful, we have designed a compensation package that is assembled to take care of you and your family when you need it most. Periodically we compare this package with the benefits offered by other area companies to be sure we are providing fair compensation, benefits and a good work/life balance for our staff.
Our total compensation package includes health benefits, work/life balance benefits, financial protection, and retirement benefits. And since we value continued education, we offer regular training assistance, as well as some in-house training programs and resources.
