Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB)
Creating an inclusive environment.
livingHR believes everyone should have access to opportunities and know what it feels like to belong. Belonging and celebrating our whole selves has been woven into our Culture Code as an organization since 2009. We believe that in order to support belonging, we must use our voices to advocate for everyone in all groups, races, abilities, identities, genders, religions, and backgrounds.
Showing Up for Our People
Humanized Benefits to Support Our Diverse Team
We weave DEIB into the fabric of our culture, and one of the most important ways we do that is through the benefits we offer our employees. We believe that everyone deserves to have access to the benefits they need to thrive, regardless of their background or identity.
Benefit plan options that include gender-affirming care and domestic partnership eligibility
Company paid access to mental health care
Family and Caregiver Leave + Parental Leave
The Family Emergency Fund: A trust-based fund available to all W-2 employees for unexpected healthcare expenses, caregiver gaps, or temporary lodging expenses due to any crisis not covered by other benefits or insurance
Unlimited PTO with a 3-week minimum to counteract the research done that shows unlimited PTO encourages less time off

livingHR Digital Inclusion Guide
The digital space isn't always inclusive, whether it be the representation we see in imagery, the language used, the color contrasts in design, or even how we write #HashTags. Our team created a guide for navigating the digital space to show up with an inclusive step forward.
We are committed to continuously improving demographic representation in our sourcing, screening, selection, and candidate experience processes.
We offer transparency with pay bands for all levels within the organization because we know it’s essential to creating a fair and equitable workplace.
Our Representation Today
Because representation matters, we always strive to ensure each person on our team feels represented, heard, valued, and seen. We survey our team members regularly to gain a better understanding of the representation we have as a group and to gauge how each person is feeling. We take these results into careful consideration as we make plans to move forward as an organization. We are proud of the diverse representation that encompasses our team, and we are constantly evolving how we attract, retain, and support our talent.
