Diversity makes companies stronger. If you want to grow, if you want to be a more humane and equitable company, and a happier place to work: become more diverse. Yet, “becoming diverse,” while a lofty and important goal, is not just a matter of hiring a few new faces. It’s not an issue of optics: having diverse faces at the table only matters if those people are given a voice, power, and a chance to leave their mark on the company. We'll host a conversation with our COO, Santiago, and our CTO, Mauricio. Welcome guys! In this episode we talked about: What makes a company diverse? How to create a diverse company? Benefits of diversity Jobsity diversity

Today, we’ll lay out what goes into these three staffing solutions, explaining the pros and cons of each, and providing a template for how you might begin to explore the best staff augmentation solution for your specific needs.
