Black lives matter, and we stand with you.
At the founding level of JumpCrew, we’re committing to being part of the change. It’s not enough to be an equal opportunity employer or have basic HR policies against discrimination. We must do more.
A Message From The CEO
An email from CEO, Robert Henderson, to JumpCrew employees:
What We're Doing To Instill Change
As part of our revision, we’re combing through our company and HR Policies and Procedures. To start, an Anti-Racism policy is being added to our company handbook. Current policies will be made complete with language and examples of micro-aggressions that violate each policy.
Violations will not be tolerated in any channel in which we operate. These include our new Anti-Harassment, Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Sexual Harassment, ADA, and Violence in the Workplace policies. Our Talent Acquisition team is updating our procedures around sourcing, recruiting, hiring, and internal promotions, ensuring that job advertisements encourage minorities to apply and join JumpCrew.
What We've Done Thus Far
The JumpCrew leadership team held an all-hands meeting where the floor was opened to talk about the current events unfolding. All members of our executive team spoke as well as black employees that wanted to share. Hearing first hand about their experiences with racism and discrimination was extremely powerful and a message no one will forget.
To continue the dialogue and education around discrimination, we opened a slack channel called “#amplifyblackvoices”. Resources have been posted continuously since it’s creation.
JumpCrew had a talent show planned that happened to take place during the weeks of protests. We decided that instead of canceling, we would hold the talent show and four of our executive leadership members pledged to match the grand prize, donating $1,000 each to NAACP.
We believe in equality and commit to never stop working towards an equal workplace and world.
