Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Diversity is a Critical Ingredient to Greatness
At Sagency, we take a people-first approach to business, which means valuing the unique perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences of others. When people feel safe and welcome to bring their authentic selves to work, everyone wins.
In fact, a study conducted by McKinsey & Company found that companies in the top quartile for diversity significantly outperformed their competitors in the bottom quartile. They were 15% more likely to financially outperform their competitors if they were gender diverse, and 35% more likely to outperform if they were ethnically diverse. These results are also supported by DDI’s 2020 Diversity and Inclusion Report, which reported that companies with above-average diversity in leadership are 8X more likely to be in the top 10% for financial performance.
Our Services Reflect Our Values
We acknowledge that bias (whether conscious or unconscious) is too often a significant barrier to building diverse and equitable workplaces where greatness is achieved. We strive to be part of the solution in everything that we do, both internally and for our clients.
We take Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion very seriously and invest in practices such as:
- Intentionally cultivating diverse candidate pools
- Countering bias with reliable and valid assessment instruments
- Creating psychologically safe and high-trust cultures where people feel welcome to bring their unique contributions
Within our own firm, we are taking ongoing steps to be more diverse and inclusive as we grow. Together, we can make progress, both in business and as a society.
