[April 4, 2024, Leesburg, VA] – The Washington Business Journal has named The Building People as No. 38 on its Corporate Diversity Index – Midsize Companies list. The diversity index is calculated using a company’s percentage of employees with various racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.

“We are honored to be named to the WBJ Corporate Diversity Index list again this year. This recognition is a testament to the people-first mentality and principles that we embrace,” said Lawrence Melton, CEO & President of The Building People. “Our diversity and high retention rate are a direct result of our scientific hiring strategy that examines candidates’ workstyles, drive, and the dynamic they bring to our team.”

This year, the companies that participated in the Corporate Diversity Index, saw a higher average percentage of people of color among their employees than in previous years, along with a higher concentration in the C-suite. The Building People experienced the same growth, listing among the top three awardees to experience a significant increase in staff diversity percentage since the company’s prior award in 2021.
