Bozzuto Employee Perspectives
We recognized the need to celebrate the robust diversity of our workforce in a way that was both inspirational and educational.
We solicit "storytellers" during Black History, Woman's History, Heritage Months, Pride Month to share cultural stories and/or personal stories about their heritage, culture, gender, sexual orientation (i.e. What does PRIDE mean to me) in a Q&A format. These stories are published internally on a weekly basis during the corresponding heritage month for employees to read. During the months where there is no nationally recognized heritage month, we solicit stories from other diverse groups within the organization i.e. Interns, Veterans.
Employee perspectives has quickly become one of the most widely read and anticipated internal communications within the organization. Employees have a unique opportunity to learn about different cultures and perspectives in a peer to peer environment and they have found these stories to be both educational and inspirational. Featured employees often receive direct positive feedback from other employees, who they may or may not know, who can personally relate to the stories shared.
We have built our company through the combined efforts of people with a variety of backgrounds, genders, cultures, races and abilities. We are proud of, and thoroughly committed to being an organization that recognizes the beauty and the richness of diversity.
