Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion

As one of the largest nonprofits in affordable housing, Mercy Housing supports people who come from all different kinds of cultures and backgrounds. In order to best support their diverse residents, they need to recruit and employ an equally diverse workforce who can speak different languages and relate to the various cultures – which is no small task for its lean HR team.

Diversity, equity and inclusion for us is critical. The communities that we serve are richly diverse and it's important that our teams are as diverse and understand the needs, the culture and the tone of any community that we're working in. ADP has allowed us to be able to … understand our pay equity landscape here at Mercy Housing to make sure that we are paying fairly, that we're paying equitably across all cuts of our population.
