Encore's commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion
At Encore, diversity, equity and inclusion are foundational to our culture and core values.
We strive to create workplaces that reflect the communities in which we work and where every person has a full sense of belonging. By doing so, we fuel our innovation, collaboration, expertise, and excellence and connect more closely to our customers and the communities we serve.
Our four stakeholder groups – Team Members, Customers, Community and Suppliers – are engaged, encouraged and supported towards positive change by the work of our Business Resource Groups, communications teams and governance teams, including our Global Inclusion Council.
Our DE&I strategy is focused on four main groups.
Our Team Members
We believe a diverse and inclusive workforce is the catalyst for all progress. By leveraging our Business Resource Groups (BRGs), we encourage Team Members to share unique experiences and perspectives in support of better understanding, open dialogue and enacting positive change.
We have a social responsibility to the communities in which we work, live and serve. Through volunteerism, sponsorship and support for diverse charitable causes, we strive to use our influence and partnerships to empower underserved communities and populations.
In our mission to be an invaluable partner on our customer’s journey, we continue to develop team members, resources and a brand that respect, reflect and best aligns with the unique needs and perspectives of our diverse customer base as we continue to Deliver World Class Service and attract new clients.
We strive to encourage and increase the support of and long-term relationships with businesses owned by minority or underserved populations.
Encore's Business Resource Groups
By creating an all-inclusive environment, we empower team members to be represented throughout various internal groups, which are open to all team members within the company. Our goal is to foster growth and development for our team members by offering compelling workshops, seminars and networking opportunities.
