Award Recognizes the Bioanalytical Laboratory’s Commitment to Diversity in the Workplace
August 7, 2017—Durham, NC—BioAgilytix, a leading provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with specialization in large molecule bioanalysis, has been named to Triangle Business Journal’s 2017 class of Leaders in Diversity award winners. The award honors companies that are working to build teams of people with diverse backgrounds and beliefs, accurately reflecting the diverse population that lives and works within the area they operate. BioAgilytix was selected because it has demonstrated respect for inclusive treatment of others, as well as advocacy for underrepresented groups.
As an equal opportunity employer and an organization with global operations, BioAgilytix has sought to create a work environment that promotes diversity of opinions, perspectives, experience, and personal style, and that sees candidates selected for their unique talents rather than their age, sex, race, religion, national origin, or other status. “Our approach to recruiting is focused on building a well-rounded team of people with a unique breadth and depth of skill and different sets of life experiences,” said Jason Shannon, Human Resources Manager at BioAgilytix. “We do this because we believe we can more quickly reach novel conclusions by drawing on each other’s varied educational backgrounds, work experiences, personal perspectives, and even different thought processes.”
BioAgilytix has credited its diversity policy and programs in helping to recruit a wide variety of talent, from recent graduates to top thought leaders in the global bioanalytical realm, during a time of continued company growth. “Diversity is a necessity for the success of our global business, because we serve a diverse pool of global customers,” said Jim Datin, Chief Executive Officer of BioAgilytix. “It has always been a driving force in our hiring efforts, and it is truly exciting to see our team grow, not just in size but also in breadth and depth of talent, diversity, and unique perspectives. Through open collaboration we are able to tap the variety of knowledge and skills possessed by our talented people to efficiently solve our customers’ unique bioanalytical challenges.”
BioAgilytix will be recognized with the 2017 class of Leaders in Diversity award winners at a luncheon held on September 8th at the Raleigh Marriott City Center. More information on the event can be found here.
