Caring for Community
Tugboat Logic is committed to being a socially responsible organization. We continually develop and improve our policies and practices to support our employees, clients and communities.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We believe that there is strength in diversity, and our workforce should represent all individuals and groups in society. Alongside 22 other companies, Tugboat Logic received The Startup Weekly’s 2021 Diverse and Inclusive Employer Award for our work in diversity, equity and inclusion. With our diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) policy, we establish recruitment standards, promote awareness of diversity issues, create a workplace that fosters dignity and respect, and launch HR initiatives that highlight opportunities for engagement.
Diversity is our biggest asset. We come from different places with essential perspectives that are valuable, insightful and informative.

The DE&I Framework
The Labs team at Tugboat Logic has developed a DE&I framework to implement best practices around DE&I. This framework aims to support individuality, address systemic inequalities and create a culture that values respect, acceptance and equal access to opportunities.
The five pillars of the framework, including requirements for each pillar are:
Leadership Commitment and Involvement
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer; Executive Oversight on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Budget and Resource Allocation
Equitable Hiring, Retention and Benefits
Inclusive Job Descriptions; Equitable Hiring Process; Equitable Compensation and Benefits Program; Clear Career Paths
Community Involvement and Social Impact; Employee Wellbeing
Communication on DEI Initiatives
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Awareness; Communication on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Values
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Report and Feedback; Anonymous Reporting
Actions speak louder than words. That’s why Tugboat Logic employees can take two days paid per year to give back to their local communities through volunteer work of their choice. We seek to provide direct support where we live, work and play, while also enriching our employees’ personal lives by encouraging them to pursue causes aligned with their beliefs.
Make DEI a Priority
Tugboat Logic is pleased to share the complementary DE&I framework containing content (controls along with implementation guidance, evidence tasks and policies) for the above five pillars with all the existing Tugboat Logic’s customers. We hope that providing this framework to customers will support the essential movement toward diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.
If you are not an existing customer of Tugboat Logic and want to leverage the controls piece from the DE&I framework, here is a complete list of controls associated with the five pillars.
