Inclusive Diversity Policies and Programs Help the Company to Recruit a Wide Variety of Global Talent to its USA and European Headquarters
JULY 17, 2018—Durham, NC—BioAgilytix, a leading provider of contract bioanalytical testing services with specialization in large molecule bioanalysis, has demonstrated its commitment to diversity as it continues to build out its team as part of the company’s methodical, strategic growth. Thus far in 2018, BioAgilytix has brought on 53 new team members in the USA and 16 at its European Headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. Nearly half of these new hires come from minority backgrounds, contributing additional diversity to BioAgilytix’s already global team. With this year’s new hires included, BioAgilytix employees represent over 25 countries from all over the world.
The company also hires from diverse scientific backgrounds. Of the employees hired in 2018 to date, half have a bachelor’s degree and half have a master’s or Ph.D. degree. This has helped the organization maintain the level of veteran expertise needed to support complex large molecule bioanalysis – in fact, its scientific team averages 15+ years of post-schooling bench experience – while giving opportunities to young professionals to work alongside and learn from seasoned scientists as they grow within their roles.
Recognized by the Triangle Business Journal in 2017 as a Leader in Diversity, BioAgilytix’s broad diversity policy and programs have helped to draw a wide variety of talent to the company during a time of accelerated growth. “As an equal opportunity employer and an organization with global operations, we have prioritized creating a work environment that promotes diversity of backgrounds, opinions, and experience,” said Jim Datin, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioAgilytix. “We believe that diversity within our company is necessary because we serve a diverse pool of global customers. As we continue to grow, we know that we will be able to more quickly problem-solve and reach novel conclusions for each client’s unique challenges by drawing on each other’s varied educational backgrounds, work experiences, personal perspectives, and even different thought processes.”
