Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2021, Progress has built a close and nurturing culture based on respect, trust and collaboration. The company strives to be part of an inclusive community that celebrates the diverse backgrounds and experiences of all people. Despite the pandemic, the company has continued to thrive because of the rich and diverse people that power Progress.
“Over the last year, Progress has put a tremendous amount of effort into ensuring we continue to lead the charge on important social justice initiatives and to be an employer of choice through our inclusionary practices,” said
Progress was honored for the following:
- Company Culture: Recognizes companies for their leadership in company culture, remote working, future of work, community investment and workforce transformation. Throughout the pandemic, Progress’ top priority has been the health and wellbeing of its employees. Teams continue to collaborate, innovate and support each other, while corporate initiatives such as multiple Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), a company-wide mentorship program and varied culture and belonging initiatives provide employees with a safe place to engage, learn and grow.
- Inclusivity Impact: Acknowledges companies that have made a meaningful impact in areas including diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. Progress has continued to expand its Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) efforts year-over-year, from evolving its employee training and hiring practices, to the hiring of its first Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer, to the company’s collaboration with MassTLC and the Tech Compact for Social Justice.
- Tech for Good: Social Responsibility: Recognizes companies for giving back in areas such as environmental, social and corporate governance programs and addressing the needs of today’s world. Progress’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, Progress for Tomorrow, focuses on three key pillars: Our People (Inclusion & Diversity, human rights), Our Community (social justice, STEM education, emergency relief), Our World (environmental sustainability). All are steeped in the company’s commitment to always put the needs and goals of its customers, employees and communities first.
