Building the workforce of the future
The extraordinary challenges over the past year have shaken businesses to the root. Uncertainty over the pandemic, the global economic slump, and widespread social unrest in response to racial injustice are among the pressures affecting companies and their employees. Rubicon has felt these forces, too, and they have served as a reminder of the importance of helping our people thrive no matter the circumstances. That is reflected in our recognition as a Certified B Corp, demonstrating our adherence to fostering a culture of innovation; our participation in the largest CEO-driven initiative for opportunity for all in the workplace; and our financial literacy training for all workers.40 We introduced a permanent remote work policy in 2020 to limit the spread of COVID-19, and we continue to look for other ways to ensure the wellbeing of our people.
