Bias in the workplace

Kimberly King, director of GDOT, says, “Seeing woman-owned companies take on the urgent issue of bias within organizations makes me happy. The firm’s recognition of the need provided by this moment in history is indicative of their forward-thinking commitment to doing business that makes a difference.”

Nichelle Gainey, Foresee and Company’s co-founding partner, says, “We are so proud to have been granted DBE certification. Georgia’s Department of Transportation’s staff was thorough, thoughtful and extremely helpful during the process. As a woman and minority-owned business, we look forward to serving the state of Georgia and the companies doing business here as they work to address bias. We are grateful for the support, recognition and the opportunity to be an integral part of moving Georgia forward.”

Foresee and Company focuses on pinpointing bias within the workplace. It uses a management evaluation with values-based assessments available in the market. This unique data-driven approach gives companies the best predictor of motivations and behaviors in the workplace. Through delivering multi-faceted reports that provide insight into issues like low productivity and high turnover resulting from bias. Using this data, Foresee is able to work closely with management to create customized training. With the use of team building programs without causing greater harm to their culture. Research shows that this is often the unintended byproduct of de-facto diversity and inclusion training.
