Championing Corporate Diversity
An award-winning, forward thinking New York City based executive search firm, where championing corporate diversity, equity, inclusion and gender parity is at its core.
We are Ellig Group, the leader in identifying, recruiting, developing, and onboarding diverse executive talent for senior-level appointments in the C-suite and boardroom, ensuring long-term success for corporate America and our nonprofit clients along with the candidates whose careers we champion.
Here at Ellig Group, we believe it is imperative for corporate America to build a reputation of inclusion within all levels of the workforce. Not only is securing diverse executive talent the right thing to do but countless studies have determined a correlation between diverse executive talent and higher financial performance.
Therefore, if a company’s objective is to drive profits, then appreciating the connection between diverse executive talent and financial performance might be something organizations with lower diversity, equity, and inclusion numbers may choose to strategize around—and here we can help.
We know when organizations adopt championing corporate diversity, boosted profits inevitably follow. In addition to the increased profits, companies have benefited by an improvement in quality of talent, increased employee retention and being the employer of choice, and increased employee commitment, loyalty, and innovation. The key constituents are your employees, consumers, communities, and shareholders, and they are all always observing. It’s not uncommon to learn of employees turning down offers from other corporate suitors on the basis of a lack of their peers being equally represented at the would-be new employer.
Take a moment to observe your workplace surroundings. The demand of diversity, equity and inclusion permeates throughout all cultural spaces and can be seen on Madison Avenue and the advertising world, within the federal government, healthcare, education, entertainment and media, in a word the appeal for diversity, equity, and inclusion is “ubiquitous.” If you ignore culture you are diametrically competing with organizations that are listening, acting and leading.
How diversity, equity, and inclusion can have a rippling impact within an organization’s long-term success is simple mathematics. In a homogeneous group, where everyone is the same, you’ve established an echo chamber and ideas and decisions will reflect “group think.” On the other hand, when a group is made up of a cross section of culture with unique voices, you have a kaleidoscope and can discern complexity and craft better honed and targeted decisions.
Executive search is the foundation of our business and frequently marks the beginning of our relationship with our clients. Our cutting-edge technology, robust database, and vast network provide a strong launching point and unparalleled experience for clients seeking diversity throughout all levels of their organization, always providing you with a diverse panel of choices. Reach us if you would like to have a more comprehensive conversation on championing corporate diversity and how we may serve you.
