Of Phelps United’s total workforce, 57% belong to an ethnic minority. This is the third year in a row that the company has received this certification, which shows that it considers diversity to be an essential element of the company’s success.
At Phelps United, diversity, equity and inclusion are fundamental to its core values. It’s about unique perspectives, varied backgrounds, ideas and belonging. The company believes this is a key factor in its continued success. “It’s about all walks of life and beliefs coming together and leading to better discussions, decisions and outcomes for everyone.
