The company’s management team makes sure that employees are properly trained, recognized and rewarded for good work, respected at work and have opportunities to advance.
CPS believes that the diversity of its workforce is one of its biggest assets. When hiring to fill office, sales, field, management and security officer positions, CPS looks for people who are qualified regardless of their age, ethnicity, gender, national origin, religion or sexual orientation. CPS Solutions believes that it is made stronger by a diverse workforce. Diversity at work means more ideas. Diversity in the workforce fosters harmony and better understanding among people.
In this century, when more and more people of different backgrounds and cultures are encountering each other, a diverse workforce is also good for business. By embracing diversity, a business shows that it’s ready for the modern world. Also, the willingness of a businesses to include many kinds of people draws a larger pool of talent to that business.
Diversity also helps current employees by letting them learn more about people of different backgrounds. This education can help form bonds between employees, which may create friendships. These bonds can be invaluable to the company, too, on occasions when it needs to be united in a goal or in a time of crisis.
By using a diverse workforce, management learns better ways to sell products and services to a diverse population. CPS management knows that by fostering employee harmony in a diverse workforce, more employees will be happy and want to stay with the company. The company won’t have a revolving door of new hires and exiting employees. And happy employees are productive and help the company to be more profitable.
It’s the law not to discriminate. By having a diverse workforce and understanding how to keep that workforce diverse, a company will not be the target of lots of discrimination lawsuits and bad media coverage. A company that has a diverse workforce helps the people who work for the company begin to achieve their dreams. Workers can purchase necessities and help their families fulfill their ambitions.
CPS’s treatment of its workforce extends to the public its employees encounter. CPS trains its employees to greet the public politely and with respect. Security officers receive training in what sexual harassment is and instruction not to engage in it. Their instructions include not stopping any clients or members of the public from doing their intended task.
CPS Solutions’ support of diversity includes suppliers too. The company seeks and encourages suppliers who have credentials to approach the company about doing business. Though this is not a complete list, some members of the following organizations and programs are invited to approach the company: the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) and the 8 (a) Business Development or Small Disadvantaged Business Certification Program of the Small Business Administration (SBA). The number of businesses owned by women, blacks, Latinos, Asians, gays and the many other groups that make up this country will only grow and CPS wants to include these business persons as partners.
