Diversity and Inclusion
At Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Our continued success requires that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt serve more people in more languages and countries than ever before. Our customers increasingly demand products and services that are relevant to their information needs and respectful of their cultures. To meet these needs, we must ensure that we are sensitive to - and accepting of - the diverse nature of our customers around the world.
We believe that one way of meeting our customers' needs is through diversity in the workplace. Changing demographics in the US and elsewhere fundamentally affect the make-up of the HMH employee population. We must ensure that our culture, attitude and systems are in alignment with these changes.
We want to develop and encourage the potential contributions that all our people bring to the Company. In order to do this, we must first recognize the value of the broad and rich variety of experiences, ideas, and skills our colleagues offer the business.
We believe that there is an ongoing business benefit to our customers, employees, and communities when the Company is not only free of illegal discrimination but also inclusive with a diverse workplace.
