We, as a company, perform at our best when all of us are seen, appreciated and able to work to our full potential. An environment that can see and harness the talent of team members without bias cultivates innovation, setting the stage for long term success for our company, customers, partners, and our team members. That’s why Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) must be put into action throughout our entire organization.
DEI covers a variety of ongoing programs here at Hyve including cross-cultural events, education and workforce engagement.
Hyve’s diverse workforce consists of people with multiple social, ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Our hope is that something as simple
as this cookbook can help send a powerful message in advancing cross-culturalism. Prepare to be inspired to create something wonderful!
