North Carolina recently passed a new law that limits the rights of people in the LGBT community ‚Äî a move that is concerning to CHG and in direct conflict with our commitment to creating a welcoming and safe environment for all people.
In an effort to convey our concern and encourage a more inclusive and non-judgmental approach, Scott Beck, CEO of CHG Healthcare Services, wrote the following letter to Pat McCrory, the governor of North Carolina.
Dear Governor McCrory,I am writing to express disappointment in your support of eliminating anti-discrimination ordinances based on sexual and gender orientation. CHG Healthcare Services is one of the oldest and largest healthcare staffing companies in the country, with more than 2,000 employees across the country. For the past 16 years, we have been growing our business in North Carolina, and we now employ 125 people in our Durham office. We take great pride in our people-centric culture. For the past seven years, Fortune magazine has recognized CHG as one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" in America. CHG is one of only three companies in North Carolina to earn a spot on this prestigious list. This recognition ‚Äî and more importantly, the success of our business ‚Äî is a direct result of how we treat our people and how our people treat each other. Our defining core value is Putting People First. We believe that all people deserve respect, caring, and support, and they should feel free to be themselves ‚Äî regardless of who they love or which gender they choose. We encourage you to put an end to this discriminatory legislation, which is detrimental to the people of North Carolina and counter to the fertile business climate you have cultivated in the state. In the meantime, CHG will continue to support our people and give them the freedom to bring their best selves to work every day, without fear of discrimination. Sincerely, Scott Beck President and Chief Executive Officer CHG Healthcare Services
