“I found the experience working with Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. to be methodical and well-paced,while ensuring that I understood the concepts before moving on. I would recommend Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. to any organization that has not been able to convince their CEO the value of Diversity & Inclusion or commit to its principles be included in all new initiatives.”
Denise Banuelos, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, California State University San Bernardino

I contacted Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. because we are making strides to improve diversity within the organization. Through the process, there is much activity around building ERGs with no measurement around ROI. I chose Hubbard and Hubbard because this group has significant training programs that address ERG, DROI, and assessment around identifying business results.

 

Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. solved my problem through a number of avenues. First, through consultation, the company was able to advise me around the best approach to take in order to support company diversity initiatives around ERG and BRG start-ups, further, they advised ways in which we could actually measure the success of our initiatives.

 

What is unique about the approach is the hands-on application of assessing the success of our programs, various measures that can be used to assess ROI using diversity initiatives, and how to support change within the organization. Specifically, it was the multi-level approach to assessing DROI through the evaluation of targets, linking needs with evaluation through the Alignment and Forecasting Matrix tool.

 

Hubbard & Hubbard has a wealth of tools, books, lectures, and personal support that make them unique, as well. The website is replete with tools that are intended to facilitate learning and application.

 

I found the experience working with Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. to be fantastic. They are delightful to work with; one is certain they only want your success and are extremely supportive around any concerns the learner may have. I fully intend to engage with Hubbard & Hubbard regularly through my learning journey in support of diversity. I could not have asked for better coaches, mentors, and trainers than this organization.

 

I would recommend Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. to my organization and any organization that is truly interested in using diversity to improve the bottom-line within the organization. The reason I’d recommend this organization is that while several organizations teach about the importance of diversity and inclusion, Hubbard & Hubbard actually teach how to apply what you learn in a manner that facilitates support to the business, improved processes, performance, retention, and business results. It is more than simply understanding the reason why diversity is important, their techniques allow one to actually implement initiatives that through the use of diversity, improve revenue, reduce attrition, support diversity hiring, drive business results.”

Ardella Coleman, Human Resources Director, Comcast Cable
“I contacted Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. because we recently created a role focused on inclusion in the workplace and I was struggling to prioritize and demonstrate the value of the numerous initiatives involved in the program.
  • Hubbard & Hubbard, helped me by helping me identify and evaluate the different factors in each of the programs and organize them into a more executable strategy
  • The result was we are reframing our approach to the initiative, focusing more on gathering the data we need to make effective decisions than acting on assumptions or others’ experience.
  • The solution was unique because it combines all of the “traditional” methods of outlining a change management initiative with the ability to define metrics that aid in evaluating not only cost benefit, but the actual behavioral delta that is attributable to the inclusion activities.
  • I would recommend Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. to anyone who is responsible for creating strategies to address inclusion issues in their organization. While the value of the approach can be beneficial at any phase of your initiative, I think it was particularly helpful for us as we were at the six-month mark when I took the course.
I think its greatest value is to give you the language and methodology that you need to design, develop and implement programs that will move toward your desired objectives in the most cost and benefit effective way.”
Toni Cornelius, Managing Director, Inclusion and Workforce Strategy, Mesirow Financial
  • The services provided by Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc., has already resulted in significant changes in our organization in cost savings and in more effective processes. We are using your tools in conducting our everyday business.
  • A unique characteristic of your corporation is that you are able to customize to fit the structure and the culture of the individual organization. I find this ability essential to successful implementation in a government organization.
  • The excellent service we get from your office staff also deserves recognition. It is amazing how quickly my calls are returned, even from the Far East. Also, the written materials we receive are of the highest quality, and are adaptable to our specific needs. Please thank them for such super Customer Service.
  • I appreciate your availability and willingness to help as we implement the processes. You have been there whenever we needed advice or assistance. “We have learned to trust the process,” and we look forward to our continued partnership with your organization in the future.
  • Hubbard & Hubbard, Inc. is definitely “World Class!”
