HomeServices companies are rooted in the communities they serve. Many of our companies offer hands-on or financial support to a wide variety of community non-profit organizations. This includes organizations that provide services and support for underserved youth, individuals with disabilities, veterans, the elderly, those who are homeless, those who have suffered abuse, those who are food insecure, and many other causes. Nationally, HomeServices is taking steps to address systemic barriers to homeownership for African Americans and other people and communities of color through the HomeServices Foundation for Housing Equity.
Diversity & Inclusion
We are committed to attracting, developing and creating opportunities that leverage the strengths and diversity of our people. We strive to have:
- A workforce that is reflective of the diverse backgrounds and talents in the communities we serve;
- A workplace of fair treatment and equality of opportunity, which provides everyone what they need to contribute and succeed;
- And a work culture in which everyone feels at home: welcomed, accepted, respected and valued.
Safe & Secure
As part of our commitment to employees, a safe and productive workplace is always top of mind. An accident-and injury-free day, each and every day is our goal. Throughout the year we participate in various initiatives to promote safety prevention including ergonomic self-checks, office walk-throughs, safe driving and HomeServices’ very own Safety Month. Together we work to achieve our goal of zero safety incidents – Target Zero!
Cybersecurity is also a focus to protect both employees and our customers. We know that criminals relentlessly try to steal our work and personal data online, so why would we invite them in? 91 percent of all cyberattacks begin when someone clicks on a link or attachment contained in a phishing email. Because of this, everyone in our organization is on the front line of defense against this significant threat facing our industry. We are committed to ensuring the security of data for all employees, the company, and the communities that we serve. The following resources provide tips and information to help keep you phish-free.
Equal Employment Opportunity, Discrimination and Harassment Policy
HomeServices of America, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates strive to provide and promote equal opportunity and non-discriminatory treatment for all current and prospective employees as required by applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. The company is strongly committed to making employment decisions based on valid requirements, without regard to race, color, religion or religious creed, age, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status (except as required by law), gender, gender identity, gender expression, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, genetic information, physical or mental disability, veteran or military status, familial or parental status, marital status or any other status protected by applicable law.
Company policy regarding equal employment opportunity, discrimination, and harassment is established to communicate the company’s intent to maintain a work environment that fosters respect for diversity and fairness. The company believes in both the actual requirements and the spirit of equal opportunity laws and regulations. To that end, unlawful acts of discrimination, harassment, or other illegal conduct will not be tolerated. It is the responsibility of all employees to ensure that the concepts of equal employment opportunity and nondiscrimination are understood and followed by everyone. Managers have a special responsibility as these protections cover all management practices and decisions, including recruitment, hiring, appraisals, promotions, training, and career development progress. If you believe you have been subjected to or exposed to any workplace discrimination or harassment, you should report the situation to your immediate supervisor, human resources, the legal department or as outlined in the HomeServices HR Policy. The company will take prompt and immediate action against discrimination, retaliation, or harassment.
Recognizing and respecting the diversity among our employees and within the communities where we do business is vital to accomplishing our goals. All employees at HomeServices of America, Inc., its subsidiaries, and affiliates are responsible for creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace. Diversity and inclusion are critical components of a sustainable business and both should be considered in all business decisions. Making the workplace more diverse, equitable, and inclusive is not only the right thing to do, it’s also crucial to our success. Our employees are our greatest asset. We must continue to celebrate our differences and value the diversity among us as our company grows. I fully support diversity and inclusion programs, and I am committed to the company’s equal employment opportunity policies.
