Direct Recruiters believes that Diversity, Inclusion and Equality are the best practices in modern talent acquisition and building a dynamic workforce. This means being open to hiring and doing business with others regardless of race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, social class, physical ability or attributes, religious values, political beliefs, experiences and more.


Many factors drive various organizations' commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. The biggest factor is dynamic change in workforce demographics. We believe that the strongest workforce is made up of people from all different backgrounds. Globalization, fierce competition for talent, and the changing needs of companies, industries and consumers all play major roles in embracing diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our business and client businesses.


As the relationship-focused search firm that assists top-tier organizations with recruiting, acquiring and retaining high-impact talent, we are highly qualified to help organizations hire transcendent, diverse talent. Our beliefs are that a diverse workforce enables organizations to thrive, and we have an extensive network of candidates of all races, genders, gender identities, ethnicity, sexual orientations, ages, social classes, physical abilities or attributes, religious values, political beliefs, experiences and more. Our inclusive recruiting strategies are tailored for each client in order to bring the best talent match to their organizations.

"Direct Recruiters has always stood for fairness and equality, but we must proactively do better both internally and while guiding our clients. We have formed a task force to proactively address the values of equality, fairness and diversity and we have charged them with listening  to our employees, candidates and clients and implementing real change. We feel that as a search firm we have the rare ability to make a huge impact on individuals, organizations and families. We pledge to do our part of the hard work that comes with making our society a better place. We all deserve to live and work in an environment built on the belief that our differences make us stronger."
