Meet Qlarant – Portrait of an Inclusive Employer
In previous discussions about inclusion, we have seen how fully committing to this innovative philosophy and letting it permeate a company’s culture creates a better environment and an improved bottom line. We know strategies to assure diversity and a welcoming environment to people of all abilities has been an extraordinary positive for Easton based Qlarant. Their entire company culture exemplifies this successful strategy.
Qlarant has a fully integrated process which involves employees from recruitment to employment. Additionally, The Qlarant Foundation is dedicated to supporting community organizations that focus on supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. “By creating a diverse team with a wide range of experience and backgrounds, we are stronger and better prepared to face challenges and find success,” remarks Pat Boos, director of Marketing.
More importantly, this accepting environment and full commitment to this Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy have made Qlarant one of the top employers in the region. Two of their many awards include Baltimore Sun’s Top Ten Places to Work – 2018 and National Association for Business Review’s 2018 Best and Brightest Companies in the Nation.
Next month, we will review best practices for inclusion when recruiting new staff.
