Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
at Instant Teams
Using Our Voices &
Making an Impact
As a WBENC and Military Spouse Owned-certified company, Instant Teams was founded and is operated by strong women. Our CEO, Chief People & Community Officer, and the majority of our workforce are women and military-connected, bringing diverse skills and experiences to work each day. We are committed to leading the charge in remote work solutions through our talent marketplace.
We want our employees to have meaningful careers and feel connection, support, and belonging within our remote workforce community.
Our mission is simple: to foster an organizational climate that promotes inclusivity and belonging, while highlighting the diverse experiences of our employees.
What DEIB Means to Us
Fostering Belonging & Inclusivity
We want our employees to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves – to feel comfortable and respected, to feel as if they have meaningful work relationships, and to feel as if their actions contribute to company goals. Our strategic DEIB programs and initiatives are developed and carried out with those goals in mind.
The military spouse unemployment rate is 5x higher than the national average. The transient lifestyle, increased home demands, and locations of military installations make finding a “normal” 9-5 job nearly impossible for military-connected professionals. Instant Teams has participated in various Congressional roundtables, National Defense Authorizations Act reports, Department of Defense pilot programs, and policy/advocacy work around military spouse hiring and entrepreneurship. By providing fully remote opportunities, career continuation, and upskilling, we make it possible for military spouses, veterans, and other underserved communities to thrive.
STANDING UP & GIVING BACK
How We Show Up Daily
With work at Instant Teams structured around the power of remote teams, it’s extremely important for employees to feel involved and included. Having space to openly share stories, encourage healthy discussions, and feel connected fosters a strong sense of belonging.
We do this through employee-based programming, including Core Value Awards, Community Impact Groups, donation-specific Instant Impact Days, and DEIB discussions. We continuously evolve alongside our dynamic teams and employees with strategic feedback opportunities, data, and a growing library of resources.
We partner with trailblazing organizations to increase opportunities for underserved talent communities, including military spouses, veterans, caregivers, and survivors. Together, through collaborative ideas, programs, initiatives, and advocacy for the military community, we can promote skills training, prepare candidates for the remote workforce, and build talented remote teams for companies across the nation.
