This acknowledgment is a celebration of organizations that surpass data-driven benchmarks to promote inclusivity. The Inclusive Workplace Program, launched in 2022, evaluates participating companies through comprehensive surveys and data analysis, focusing on key areas such as inclusion, belonging, psychological safety, community, and purpose.

This program highlights the real strides companies are making in cultivating inclusive cultures that help all employees feel valued and engaged.

Receiving this recognition reflects our significant commitment to ensuring that every member of our team feels included, heard, and valued. Our dedication to fostering an inclusive work environment has had meaningful impacts on employee engagement, retention rates, and brand recognition. As a company, we are proud to be recognized as a beacon of inclusive culture within our industry, showcasing the tremendous benefits of prioritizing belonging and inclusivity in the workplace.

Michelle Lentz, BizStream’s Director of Marketing, emphasizes the significance of upholding a culture rooted in inclusivity.

At BizStream, we prioritize work-life balance, recognizing its impact on our team members’ mental health and well-being. Our support for working parents is evident through our extended and inclusive parental leave, a compassionate bereavement policy for miscarriages, and dedicated private spaces for nursing mothers.

“Our commitment extends beyond our team to embrace organizations making a difference within our industry and community. We actively champion causes close to our hearts by supporting groups like Hand2Hand, Holiday Helpers via Love, Inc., Out On The Lakeshore, and women and girls in tech through sponsorships and partnerships. It’s about fostering inclusivity within our organization and contributing to a broader, more inclusive landscape.”
