Summer Scoville: HR Achievement Awards
How have you helped to develop and foster the culture within your company?
The Dell culture is one of customer first, high collaboration, work hard/play hard environment, and part of a family feel. We also value a culture of winning together, innovation, results and integrity. The leadership team encourages participation in community involvement such as the food bank, blood drives, STEM efforts in local high schools, etc., and [employees] receive paid time during this involvement. … Last year I partnered with our wellness coach to create a hiking group during the summer months to encourage health and wellness across the site. Many employees were interested and met up a few times a month to hike the beautiful mountains of Utah.
How have you worked to ensure greater diversity/inclusion at your company?
The Utah site has several Employee Resource Groups that focus solely on diversity and inclusion such as Women in Action, Pride, Veterans & Supporters, Latino Connection, Planet, Caregivers, GenNext and Indian Subcontinent. These groups gather often to host site events, support community involvement initiatives, provide growth and development opportunities within the site, and offer leadership roles for individual contributors. These groups are supported by the executive team and run by the employees.
