BestCompaniesAZ plans Diversity & Inclusion Career Event

BestCompaniesAZ is hosting its annual Diversity & Inclusion Career Event on Aug. 13 at the Hyatt Regency, 122 North Second St., Phoenix, AZ,  85004, 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.  The BestCompaniesAZ Diversity & Inclusion Career Event is free to job seekers but advance registration is required.

At the hiring event, a roster of award-winning companies are offering hundreds of open positions, at all levels, in the fields of finance, IT, healthcare, customer service/client relations, sales and hospitality. Sponsoring companies must have programs in place that support diversity and/or have earned at least one prestigious state and national workplace award to participate.  Most have earned many best practices awards, such as Diversity Inc.’s Top 50, Arizona’s Most Admired Companies, Top Companies to Work for in Arizona, Arizona’s Best Companies to Watch, FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For® in America, FORTUNE Most Admired Companies, US Veterans Magazine’s Best of the Best and others.

On event day, on-site registration and check-in for job seekers begins at 11:30 a.m.  Speaker presentations, which are geared to give attendees insights into the range of opportunities available with key companies, run from noon until 12:30.  Additional one-on-one career networking continues until 2 p.m. 

BestCompaniesAZ Career Events are unlike other job fairs, because we feature company spokespersons from the state’s top employers who provide specific insights in line with our theme – in this case Diversity & Inclusion – and how their company supports these initiatives.  Additionally, these company representatives are experts on their company’s workplace programs, growth opportunities and corporate culture, and are available to answer any questions about their recruitment process,” says Denise Gredler, Founder & CEO BestCompaniesAZ. 

Featured companies include: Charles Schwab, Dignity Health Arizona, Synchrony Financial, Progrexion, USAA , GoDaddy, Hyatt Regency-Phoenix, Medtronic, Vanguard, ZocDoc, Yelp, Aetna and Edward Jones. During the event, the nonprofit Career Connectors has volunteered to offer free coaching and resume services to career event candidates.

“At Progrexion, we are committed to hiring the most wickedly talented people who represent the diverse range of backgrounds and cultures of our customers nationwide. We look forward to participating in the Diversity and Inclusion Career Event to seek employees who are passionate about our mission,” says Jason Stevens, Site Director at Progrexion. “What is unique about Progrexion is that our employees are improving the lives of our customers one at a time by ensuring that they have a fair credit report and more financial freedom.” 

Shannon Feltes Grimes, Talent Attraction Manager of Charles Schwab, says, “Schwab is honored to be part of the BestCompaniesAZ Diversity Career Event. When Chuck started the firm, his vision was a world where investing was accessible to all investors. Because serving diverse investors requires diverse talent, we are committed to hiring and retaining employees from unique backgrounds, strengths and perspectives.  We have current career opportunities for job seekers at various stages in their career, from our Broker Training Program for those new to our industry, to the Relationship Specialist role in Advisor Services, to positions for both new and experienced technical professionals.  Once an employee has landed at Schwab, they will experience an inclusive, collaborative culture driven by our employees’ individual strengths.”

Sundt Recognized By BestCompaniesAZ For Reshaping State

Sundt Construction, Inc.  is among 100 Arizona companies being honored by BestCompaniesAZ for reshaping the state’s workplaces over the past decade.

BestCompaniesAZ, a Mesa, Ariz.-based consulting firm that identifies, develops and promotes outstanding employers, recently released its 100 Best Arizona Companies of the Decade list in celebration of the organization’s 10th anniversary and Arizona’s Centennial. “We are proud to recognize companies that are at the forefront of innovation and economic growth in Arizona,” said Denise Gredler, president and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ. “These are the best and they deserve recognition.” Sundt’s name appears in the Stars of the Best category for mastery and leadership in its field.

“At Sundt Construction, we believe it is our people who make the difference,” said Sundt Senior Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Richard Condit.  “We know that if we keep our employees happy, they, in turn, will work hard to keep our customers happy. We are grateful to be honored among other Arizona companies that also are dedicated to creating great workplaces and maintaining the highest performance standards.”

In addition to being one of the country’s oldest and most respected general contractors, Sundt provides a number of employee benefits, including an employee stock ownership plan; health plan, vision and prescription benefits; paid time off and an opportunity to make pre-tax donations to the Sundt Foundation, a separate non-profit organization focused on the needs of disadvantaged children and adults. The foundation receives most of its funding through employee contributions, which are matched by the company. To date, the Sundt Foundation has provided more than $5 million in aid to community organizations in communities where Sundt has an established office, or to charitable organizations associated with military installations where the company has a construction project underway.
