From social movements to the global pandemic, the past two years have brought about swift change — a shift in how and where we work and a social reckoning to confront discrimination in many of our public and private institutions. In today’s world, companies need to make diversity in the workforce a business imperative if they want to hire and retain the best talent and prove to their customers that diversity is more than just a buzzword.
In the soon to be released BeyondHQ Diversity Ranking (reserve an advance copy with the form below), we share our findings of how U.S. cities with the largest presence of technology workers are performing when it comes to diversity in their employed talent. What we found was eye-opening. For instance, did you know that:
- New York City has one of the most diverse populations in the country, but it doesn’t rank very highly in tech workforce diversity?
- Silicon Valley, where the tech industry was born, performs the worst when it comes to women in tech?
- Ageism is a cause for concern in a very youthful tech sector, but workers of the age of 55 appear to be overrepresented?
Companies today are increasingly applying diversity metrics to their hiring practices. For many of these organizations, creating a diverse workforce starts with company leadership asking which communities they should consider for expansion to help them achieve their diversity goals. The BeyondHQ platform helps them to get there by running unlimited talent and real estate analyses.
As companies think more about hybrid work models and a geographically dispersed footprint, BeyondHQ enables HR, Real Estate, and Finance teams to evaluate where, why, and how to source talent or open offices. Using a single interface to access trusted market data, our proprietary technology informs ‘what-if’ style scenario planning with customized recommendations based on the organization’s specific needs, priorities, and culture.
