These last few months have been an unprecedented time for human-I-T for many reasons. While the shutdown has caused many difficulties, they have shined a light on the need for digital inclusion now more than ever. Through our efforts, we have been able to assist thousands of people in getting the technology they need to stay safe, informed, and connected these past few months.
To meet these needs, we have grown the team considerably, hiring 22 people last week, bringing our staff to almost 80 people! This includes bolstering existing teams such as our fabulous Subscription Specialists, who help people get connected to low-cost, high-speed internet, to expanding our Tech Support team as they assist over 51,000 Detroit students.
One of the significant upsides about this growth is getting to meet a bunch of new faces (virtually, of course!) who are passionate about giving back to the community. Here are what a few of our new team members had to say about recently joining human-I-T:
“I am thrilled to be a new member of the human-I-T team! It’s clear that everybody here truly believes in our purpose of empowering people to achieve their full potential, and I’m proud to join an organization that’s committed to inclusivity and sustainability.” -Ghermayn Baker, Marketing Director
“To be part of a mission that prioritizes not only bridging the digital divide but also focusing on sustainable and innovative ways in doing so is something I never thought possible. I learn something new every day here at human-I-T and am excited to continue down this path of continuous improvement to contribute the best that I can to help others!” -Chan Nguyen, HR Generalist
“This is only my second week, and I've been so impressed not only with human-I-T's openness to feedback and change but also how quickly action is implemented based on said feedback. human-I-T really does believe that everyone's perspective is essential and that everyone can help make the system better so that we can continue to do what's best for our clients.” -Julie Burkhard, Donation Coordinator
