Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are three core values that are more important than ever as we work together to make a unified and collaborative workforce for all. With that said, the processes and initiatives put into place can look different across all organizations, and knowing where to begin can prove to be a challenge. Join J.B. Hunt Director of HR Compliance Mark Jostad, and ArcBest Senior Manager of HR Compliance and Inclusion Dana Deason for a one-hour webinar on how their companies are approaching DEI in the workplace, what has worked (and what has not), and important lessons learned along the way. Whether you are new to DEI or looking for best practices and benchmarks for your already established programs, this webinar will provide tips for both recruitment and retention, including how to:

  • Begin a DEI journey to establish a diverse workforce
  • Maintain momentum with your initiatives to ensure they remain successful after initial launch
  • Form valuable Employee Resources Groups (ERGs) that have proven to show effectiveness in building equity and inclusion within an organization
