BELONGING is about more than just being accepted. It's about feeling like you have a place in the world, that you matter, and that you're valued.
We invite everyone to join us in creating a workplace where all voices are heard, and everyone feels welcomed, valued, respected, and empowered. Together, we can create a culture that celebrates diversity, fosters growth, innovation, and success for all.
At HCL Engineering & Surveying, we believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) starts with knowing you belong to the team. We live BDEI every day at HCL and show our values through our actions and words in the way we show up in our company, with our partners, and in the communities we serve.
As a minority-owned business, we understand the importance of creating a workplace that values and celebrates diversity in all its forms.
To that end, we have developed a comprehensive BDEI plan that is woven into the fabric of our company culture and operations. Our plan includes the following key components:
As a certified minority-owned business with a diverse workforce, we understand the importance of living our values and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work. We are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive workplace for all employees, and we will continue to take proactive steps to ensure that we are living our values and making a positive impact in our community.
At HCL Engineering & Surveying, we believe that education and engagement are key to building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. To help our employees learn and grow together, we’ve developed a range of fun and engaging activities that promote understanding and awareness of DEI topics.
We hold regular workshops on a range of DEI topics, from unconscious bias to cultural competence. Our workshops are led by experienced facilitators and feature interactive exercises and group discussions.
We organize regular potlucks where employees can bring and share food from their cultural backgrounds. This not only promotes cultural awareness but also provides an opportunity for employees to connect and build relationships.
We have a book club where we read and discuss books on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This activity encourages dialogue and helps us learn from each other's perspectives.
We offer implicit bias training to help employees recognize and address their own unconscious biases. This training helps to promote more equitable decision-making and fosters a more inclusive workplace. It also encourages open communication.
We organized scavenger hunts where employees can learn about different cultures, identities, and experiences. This fun activity promotes learning in a lighthearted and engaging way.
