Balance Staffing was founded with the vision of creating a company that values the lives of all candidates, clients, employees, and partners. At our core, we have always been a company composed of individuals who believe our collective humanity has the power to enrich and shape the world around us. Within our world and workplace, we are committed to addressing pertinent issues head-on and using our collective voice to be actively anti-discriminative. We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of those we serve and encourage all of our employees, clients, partners, and communities to use their voices for good, promote equity, and treat others with respect.

All employees of Balance Staffing have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other company-sponsored and participative events. All team members are also required to attend and complete annual bias and equal employment opportunity training to enhance their understanding and prevent and correct discrimination in the workplace. Any employees found to have exhibited any inappropriate conduct or behavior against another may be subject to disciplinary action. Employees who believe they have been subjected to any kind of discrimination that conflicts with the company’s diversity policy and initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or an HR representative.

Proud Partnerships

We are proud to partner closely with organizations who enhance and support our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion in our teams and communities.

Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: steps we’ve taken

Balance Staffing donated $10,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (LDF) and $5,000 to the Black Organizing Project, as one step of a larger plan to fight systemic racism. LDF “seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans. LDF also defends the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggle and works to improve the quality and diversity of judicial and executive appointments.” The Black Organizing Project “is a Black member-led community organization working for racial, social, and economic justice through grassroots organizing and community-building in Oakland, California.”

Starting this year and going forward, we will be observing Juneteenth (also called Freedom Day) as a company, with the intent to create a space for learning, reflection, and action steps.  Balance CEO John Moss sent out virtual Juneteenth educational resources, access to online celebrations, and links to activities from around the country. We have and will continue to provide resources for Black history, mental health, and anti-racism  education for our internal employees, including Black Lives Matter, Juneteenth, The Loveland Foundation, and more. 

Additionally, in an effort to continuously improve as an organization, we have deployed two employee feedback surveys out to our team members this year. The objective of these surveys was to gauge employee engagement within the organization and recognize ideas, opinions, and suggestions. The results of the survey are anonymous, are first shared with our internal leadership team for review, and then shared with the rest of the company. This feedback is used to recognize company strengths, inform policy change, and identify opportunities to increase employee engagement.

We are also proud to be building a diversity franchise expansion that will offer ownership opportunities for individuals of diverse backgrounds within our local communities. In this expansion, franchise owners will operate under the Balance Staffing Franchise company and will hold a diversity certification. Our hope is to expand our community relations and connect local residents to opportunities. 

Our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: future goals

We plan to implement a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee with short and long term milestones focused on building an inclusive organization. Some of the goals of our DEI committee will be to establish Employee Resource Groups (ERG), a DEI task force, implementing anti-racism and implicit bias training in hiring, and providing ongoing resources for our internal staff to drive inclusion. Additionally, we will continuously be analyzing our internal hiring practices, tenure, and promotions of our employees to further develop equity and inclusion.
