diversity. equity. inclusion

the Smithsons way

the world has changed, and it's time that the staffing and recruitment industry change with it. Smithsons believe in representing who we put to work, and what work we put people in.

Our Commitment

We are committed to advancing social justice and racial equity in our organization, our communities and our society. We are working toward a world where everyone, regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability or Veteran status, has equal access to opportunities and feels valued and respected.

For other agencies, the world of diversity, equity, and inclusion might be new to them. But for us, it's been the focus from the beginning. We've created diverse pipelines representing a wide range of historically underrepresented people, and have worked through our core industries to create equitable and inclusive environments.

We have a comprehensive approach and set of tools that span every facet of a DEI transformation. We also help you embed DEI in everything you do, across business functions and organizational priorities, from leadership, recruitment and change management to supplier diversity, merger integration, and more.

Your business can't truly thrive unless every employee is thriving. But the diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) strategies of yesterday simply aren’t enough to build an innovative, future-ready culture that embraces diversity at every stage, from recruitment through retention and advancement. 

As innovators in diversity consulting, we can help. DEI is embedded in our mission, and through our own journey we’ve built extraordinary teams and an amazing culture. We've spent decades supporting our clients in people-centered organizational transformations, and we've learned many valuable lessons along the way. We know that a more diverse and inclusive environment doesn't just benefit employees; companies that commit to DEI outperform their peers across a wide range of critical metrics.

the impact of DE&I in staffing

When diverse backgrounds and perspectives come together, innovation and new ideas thrive — and that’s a recipe for business growth, too, as plenty of research shows. So if you’re looking to build a more well-rounded team and drive your business forward, we can help.
