Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are one of the core drivers of our success at GreyOrange. Although we’re now based in Atlanta, Georgia, we take pride in our diverse origins. Originally headquartered in Singapore and founded in India 10 years ago by the winners of a high-profile robotics competition, the company has office footprints in Germany, Singapore, Japan, Korea, India and Canada, in addition to our US offices in Atlanta and Boston. The company provides innovative fulfillment solutions including machine learning-based software and robots. Our Indian heritage, with a multi-jurisdictional human resources support base, speaks volumes about our commitment to diversity as a core value of what we do, and supports our drive to transform the logistics industry. Diversity brought us where we are today – and we believe diversity will propel us forward.Contact Us
Our DEI approach involves working to attract, retain and nurture the careers of people from diverse backgrounds, identities and experiences. Why do we believe this is the right strategy?
The most successful companies are more diverse. According to a report by McKinsey, an expert on the subject, companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were more likely to outperform. For example, the report shows companies with more than 30% women executives were more likely to outperform other companies. The evidence also suggests that ethnic and cultural diversity also contribute to performance. The top-quartile companies outperformed those in the fourth quartile by 36% in profitability.
We look to recruit talent representing diversity across race, gender, sexual orientation, veteran status and many other attributes. We are implementing tools to help us achieve this recruitment goal across our organization.
People bring unique perspectives, skills and abilities based on their varied backgrounds. We want to harness these myriad rich attributes to think critically and innovatively, and create the best solutions for our clients.
The corporate world’s purpose goes beyond generating profits. We’re a part of a broader community that’s looking to make a positive impact. Gender, ethnic and cultural diversity aren’t just admirable goals – they are critical drivers of success.
In accordance with DEI best practices outlined by McKinsey, reaching our full potential means keeping the following points in mind to formulate the best diversity approach:
GreyOrange solves our customers’ toughest logistics challenges by harnessing the best talent. We will achieve this mission by attracting and retaining the most diverse people across our organization. Moreover, creating a culture that embraces diversity – and harnesses its strengths – will make our company a better place to work.
