Diversity is about people, community, and family. It’s built into our mission to “support families through strong partnerships” and “to create a work environment that encourages professionalism, growth, and diversity.”

Despite the feverish pursuit to define, perfect, and brand culture, there are still some things that might come as a surprise. Here are 5 things you might not know about business culture.

Positive culture is considered a company’s secret to success. But can you get too much of good thing? Horizons Workforce Consulting’s (HWC) Lucy English says all the dedication to building a strong culture might be actually costing in another important area; diversity.
“Bright Horizons was founded thirty years ago with a clear mission of making a difference in the lives of all clients and families that we have a privilege to serve,” said Bright Horizons CEO Dave Lissy. “In order to do that, being an inclusive and tolerant organization for our own employees is central to that mission.”

At Bright Horizons we stand together in support of the people of Orlando and LGBT communities everywhere. We stand united against violence and against hatred. We stand committed to growing generations of children who will know peace throughout their communities and around the world, who will love and respect all people, and who will celebrate their own individuality and that of all those around them with open arms.
