To all current and potential PolicyStat stakeholders,
As president of PolicyStat, I am deeply troubled by the hostility and fear of discrimination generated by the recently passed Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in Indiana. The Indiana I know is a warm and welcoming place, and it is disheartening to see our state’s reputation tarnished in this way.
Since the founding of our company, PolicyStat has worked very hard to create an environment free of discrimination. Early on we established a strict policy to provide equal opportunities for employment and advancement for all individuals regardless of race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, physical disability, or any other potentially discriminatory characteristic. This policy applies to all employment practices including (but not limited to) recruiting, hiring, pay rates, training, promotions, and all other terms and conditions of employment and termination.
Every effort is made to ensure that coaching and employment decisions are made strictly on the basis of both the individual’s ability to perform and their actual performance of any given job. The relationship between PolicyStat and each member of the PolicyStat team is expressly intended to be free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, and we maintain this same perspective in our relationships with all of our other stakeholders as well – our customers, our community, and anyone else affiliated with our company. This will never change.
