ApTask Global Workforce Solutions, a certified African American- and veteran-owned staffing and professional development firm, is proud to announce that its Global CEO, Eddie Bright Jr., has been named a 2024 DE&I (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Influencer.

Bright, who rejoined ApTask as majority owner and global CEO in 2023 after serving as president and global CEO of HCM Staffing and Consulting Group, is a passionate advocate for cultivating diverse, equitable and inclusive work environments.

"Truly inclusive companies are 21-42% more profitable, and that's a fact," said Bright. "I'm driven by the understanding that diversity isn't just the right thing to do, but it's also beneficial for business. Within each of us lies a unique talent or skill that sets us apart, and it's our job to identify, foster and nurture that talent to achieve greatness."

Under Bright's leadership, ApTask has launched several notable initiatives, including the Veteran Hub Program, a resource center aiding active-duty personnel and retired veterans' transition to civilian life. The company has also established a partnership with West Side High School, developing 12 high school students and equipping them with workforce-ready skills. Ten of those students have since graduated and joined ApTask as full-time recruiters, forming their own internal recruiting company, GenZ Recruiting, a division of ApTask Global.

Additionally, Bright hired an executive to promote workplace accessibility and belonging, focusing on hiring practices for those with seen and unseen disabilities.

"Eddie Bright Jr. is a true DE&I champion, driven to create an environment where every individual feels valued, respected and empowered," said Taj Haslani, Founder of ApTask Group of Companies. "We are honored to have him leading our global team and shaping the future of our industry."
