OneDigital Reduces Pay Gap for Black Employees, Achieves Compensation Parity for New Hires Across All Races and Expands Leadership Accountability in DEI&B Efforts

“Many Voices, OneDigital” 2023 Report data demonstrates leadership in creating a culture of belonging

ATLANTA, GA – April 16, 2023 – OneDigital, the nation’s leading insurance brokerage, financial services and HR consulting firm, has released its annual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEI&B) report with data showing significant progress across its inclusion and belonging focus areas: learning and coaching, assessment and transparency, growing our team, social responsibility and giving.

As an organization that is dedicated to fierce advocacy for our tens of thousands of clients and the millions of people we serve, it’s imperative that we lead by example and maintain a culture where everyone feels they can be their authentic selves and to feel at home at OneDigital. Our efforts towards Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEI&B) is core to our continual pursuit to build an environment where our people can do their best work and live their best life. What sets us apart is our transparency in sharing our progress towards achieving our DEI&B goals and commitments.
Adam Bruckman, President & CEO at OneDigital

In 2023, OneDigital advanced several key DEI&B initiatives in key areas, including:

  • Reduced the racial pay gap between Black and white employees from 14% to less than 5% in the past 12 months.
  • Achieved 100% base pay parity for new hires across all races. Base pay for underrepresented minority new hires in 2023 was at or above white employees for similar roles.
  • Added four new Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) focused on early career professionals, Black women, veterans and military families, and neurodiversity.
  • Welcomed seven women- and minority-owned businesses to OneDigital in 2022-2023 through its mergers and acquisitions strategy.
  • Presented hiring managers with diverse candidate slates over 85% of the time, which has increased every year since 2021.
  • Raised over $225,000 in charitable donations nationwide through the annual DASH campaign with 50% of proceeds going to DEI&B organizations and initiatives and contributed over $2.2 million in total giving to our local communities.

We have all seen the way that the words “diversity,” “equity” and “inclusion” stir in people a powerful reaction, positive or negative with no in-between. The irony is that this is the complete opposite of DEI&B’s true intention — to remove labels and bring people together. At OneDigital, there is room for everyone to be lifted up; it does not require someone else to be lowered down. When more of us feel entirely accepted, safe to speak up and in alignment with our magic – the things that make us each uniquely who we are – it’s a win. And a win for one of us is a win for all of us.
— Kristen Eskew, Vice President of DEI&B at OneDigital
