The murder of George Floyd on May 25—and the events that have transpired since then—requires deliberate introspection about the state of affairs in our country and beyond. These events are of deep concern to me, our employees, our families, our friends, and our communities.
The Black community is in pain, and positive change is a necessity. PerfectServe stands in the fight against racism and injustice. We stand to overcome the challenges that we face and use our voices to demand that ignorance and inequity come to an end.
It’s important for me to reassert that PerfectServe has zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind. We pride ourselves on creating a work environment that is equally welcoming to people of all races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and nationalities.
In this moment, actions speak louder than words. We’re committed to evaluating our processes and standards—with help and input from people inside and outside the company—to ensure that diversity and inclusion play a larger role in PerfectServe’s culture moving forward. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but these initiatives will make us a stronger company and a better member of the community in the end.
This is only the beginning. We are confronted with daunting social challenges, and there isn’t a silver bullet. We can all do better, and PerfectServe is committed to being part of the solution.
