Organization recognized among Omaha-based companies for DEI efforts.

OMAHA, Neb. — Quantum Workplace, a leading employee success platform, as well as the leader in data collection for the nationally recognized Best Places to Work Programs, was honored by the Human Resource Association of the Midlands (HRAM) diversity and inclusion committee with a 2023 IDEAL Award. 

The IDEAL Award recognizes Omaha-based organizations for their DEI initiatives and accomplishments in embracing and promoting inclusion, diversity, equity, advocacy, and leadership (IDEAL) in business strategies, policies, decisions, and practices. 

Quantum Workplace received the Level 1 - Thrive award in the small/medium category. This is the top-level award for organizations that have established themselves as a leader and resource by implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion policy in their workplace.  

Quantum Workplace’s efforts reduced turnover and laid the groundwork for a diverse and inclusive place to work. 

“This proves that everything we’ve done over the past several years had tremendous impact, and others outside of our company are seeing that,” Quantum Workplace Director of Employee Success Cyndi Wenninghoff said. “Employees find all of these efforts meaningful to building a culture of employee success. We know what it takes to be a best place to work, and that includes creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our Qwirks.” 

Quantum Workplace’s DEI initiatives reduced turnover of women from 9% to 1%. Minority headcount also increased from 11% to 15%. The organization updated language in job postings and on the website to be more inclusive and reflect the values of the organization, and DEI trainings and events are consistently on the calendar.
