“People3 provided a training session for our team on diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias. Daniel, who was our presenter, customized the training session to our mental health setting and helped us to explore the value of diversity and inclusion among our own team at Achieve, as well as for our patients and the community at large. After an initial group discussion, our staff felt particularly comfortable in the break out sessions sharing personal reflections and insights. This helped us to not only better understand each other, but also highlighted the importance of recognizing unconscious bias in everyday living and the need to embrace the diversity and the differences among all of us. We will be continuing our work with People3 and look forward to future training sessions that will allow us to continue this journey to build new skills and enhance awareness.”

Our company is embarking on a new and intentional journey focused on diversity and inclusion.  Our first step was to identify a consultant partner to lead us on this journey.  We embarked on a search with the assistance of Lockton, and interviewed several companies.  We narrowed our search through numerous meetings and discussions and ultimately chose people3 due to their fit with our company.

People3 checked all the boxes, in addition to fitting with our culture, they had extensive experience in both manufacturing and distribution environments as well as a global presence.  They come at it with a holistic view and have met our specific requests along the way.

I am also very impressed with their technology and professionalism. Their responsiveness to our needs is impressive and exactly what we need as we embark on this new and exciting path for our company.”

By diving into unconscious bias, key life events, and personal testimonials, our team came out of the presentation with ample information and tools to communicate with employees more effectively across different generations. We highly recommend and will definitely reach out to People3 for future presentations/trainings.”
