Diversity & Inclusion at Evans
Diversity and inclusion is a top priority at Evans. Our goal is to attract, develop, and retain the most qualified individuals from all backgrounds. This requires a culture of inclusion which expects all associates to embrace and value diversity; and cultivate strong relationships with community groups.
Diversity encompasses differences and similarities that make up a wider community whether it is identities, backgrounds, experiences or points of view. It is not about removing barriers for some, it is about creating opportunity for all.
Our associate led Evans Diversity & Inclusion Council is responsible for developing actions and championing efforts in providing a workplace environment that recognizes each associate’s value and creates the opportunity for a mutually rewarding relationship.
A Safe Workplace
To ensure that all associates are free from harassment or discrimination on the basis of sex, gender or any other basis, Evans
maintains a zero tolerance policy regarding harassment or discriminatory conduct which is based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, citizenship status, military status, sexual orientation, victims of domestic violence, protected veterans status, gender identify, genetic information, genetic predisposition or carrier status and any other category protected by law. Our non-discrimination and anti-harassment policy also prohibits harassment or discrimination by a supervisor, employee, client / customer, visitor or representative of business with whom we interact as part of our job responsibilities. Evans provides training on this area at least on an annual basis for all staff and annually informs each registered vendor of our commitment to anti-harassment, non-discrimination, equal employment practices and our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and the role they have in these areas.
We also work within the high standard developed by our Code of Conduct Policy.
The Evans Employee Experience—A Better Way.
Each associate begins their Evans career through a structured onboarding program designed by both our Employee Experience Team and the direct Manager of the position. You will receive information on our systems, programs, processes, our company culture and how we work at Evans. After your initial learning, you will then meet with your Manager regularly throughout the year for coaching discussions. Through these sessions you will discuss recent positive events and results, any challenges, align on priorities while discussing progress made against goals and projects before closing out the session in discussing efforts in your continued professional development. We don’t believe in annual performance reviews. We would rather invest in your development throughout the year and receive your feedback through employee surveys and focus groups. We have a keen interest in the thoughts, ideas and suggestions of our associates. We then share the findings along with actions developed in a timely fashion. With this approach, we have been honored with the Best Place to Work in WNY by our associates for the last five years.
As a trusted advisor, serve the community by helping clients achieve their financial goals and add real value to shareholders, customers and employees through local decision making, tailored solutions, and access to leadership.
