We look beyond traditionally defined differences to create an atmosphere that welcomes all types of individuals who help us exceed our clients’ expectations.
We bring together professionals from a variety of backgrounds with different skills, experiences and approaches. This diversity of thought and opinion allows us to better challenge the norm, identify creative solutions and become stronger thought leaders.
Centric’s vision is to provide an inclusive culture enabling every person to reach his or her full potential, working together creatively to provide the highest value and quality services to our clients.
D&I in Action
Centric actively looks for complementary and unique talent to add to the team. We support the Wounded Warrior project, which assists wounded warriors with their transition to the workforce. We also support educational institutions on a local level, including the Carl H. Lindner College of Business Masters of Science in Information Systems program at the University of Cincinnati. View our careers page for current opportunities.
Centric also makes it a priority to support the men and women who fight for our country. In 2012, Centric was awarded the Patriot Award from the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense after being nominated by one of our employees who served in the Air National Guard.
“We are made up of individuals from different backgrounds and experiences with an array of ideas and working styles. We strive to embrace this diversity and leverage it to better our Centric community as well as to increase our delivery capability to our clients. We talk about creating a company that’ll last 100 years…I have no doubt that will happen.”
Equal Employment Opportunity Policy
Centric affords equal employment to all qualified individuals, without regard to their race, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, age, disability, military or veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity, genetic information and any other classifications protected by law. This policy applies to hiring, tenure of employment and all terms and conditions of employment, including, but not limited to, promotion and development, assignment, transfer, compensation, benefits, discipline, demotion and recreation provided by Centric.
This policy is more than an effort to comply with the law. Centric firmly believes that everyone, regardless of any classification that is protected by law should be treated equally and fairly.
“As a mother of two young children, my availability and time commitments sometimes differ from my colleagues. However, this has never been an obstacle. Everyone at Centric has always been open and accommodating to solutions that will work with my situation. Thus, I am able to give my best to both my family and to Centric.”
Centric offers flexible health care benefits options, designed to allow the employee to make a choice that makes the most sense for them based on their personal situation. The health care benefit plans include coverage for spouses, domestic partners, and / or family, if elected.
Joe Gerstandt is a notable blogger who writes many articles on the subject of diversity and inclusion. In one post, Joe defines inclusion as the act of including additional difference in a group or process. He writes, “Inclusion is not something that you are or are not. It is something that you do. It is behavior: the deliberate behavior of seeking out and including more difference. So, rather than telling me that you are inclusive, tell me what you are doing to include.”
