Our business begins with our people. At Sycomp, we believe each employee contributes our company’s growth and success. We strive to create a positive environment that is inclusive, challenging, and rewarding. In this environment, each employee can take pride in being a key member of our global team.
Founded in 1994 by our CEO, a former United
States Marine, and headquartered in Foster City, California, Sycomp is a Woman and Minority-Owned Business entity nationally certified by the Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council.
The practice or quality of including or involving people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, etc.: “equality and diversity should be supported for their own sake.”
True diversity goes beyond our business status and ownership. Sycomp is a diverse family of employees that we believe are the life blood of our organization.
We strive to continue growing a workforce with the right people, with the right skills – regardless of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or identity.
Globally, Sycomp’s staff consists of 42% Women – of which 68% are Ethnic/Minorities, and 58% Men – of which 59% are Ethnic/Minorities.
Culture is the centerpiece of Sycomp’s strategy. It’s not just verbiage we use in our presentations, it touches every part of our organization and pulls the team together to provide personalized service to our customers. In a very competitive employment market, culture is as important as pay and has played a vital role in our employee retention and long-term growth. Sycomp’s annual attrition rate in the US has been less than 3.5% for the past 10 years. For Sycomp, it’s not about how many people we have, it’s about having the right people with the right skills.
Leveraging our collective experiences, expertise, and diversity in delivering global IT solutions, affords our customers to better realize a world without boundaries. By cultivating a sense of belonging, this encourages each individual to bring their best self forward. We strive to foster an environment that promotes our employees to connect and be themselves. Embracing the uniqueness of each individual and accepting each other as equals encourage engagement and creativity in the workplace, reinforcing a greater sense of family.
We strive to recruit talent from diverse sources (i.e. colleges, trade schools, www.veterans.gov, etc.) and invest in internal mentorship programs to help individuals transition into IT professionals. Another effective way to find and hire new employees is through referrals. All Sycomp employees are encouraged to recommend anyone they know would be a good fit and are paid a referral fee for those hired. These recruiting and hiring programs have played a major role in expanding our diversity and developing a highly skilled and cohesive team.
Without Supplier Diversity, the impact of geo-economic and political situations can be catastrophic to a business. Sycomp is committed to ensuring our viability by implementing supply chain diversity. During these situations, Sycomp monitors orders to validate that supply will be available. By proactively verifying alternative logistics to secure on-time delivery in areas that have restrictions, we limit our exposure to any significant issues.
Our commitment to diversity across race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, and experience underlies our success and is what sets us apart from our competitors. Each of us make the company whole. Every effort, every investment, and every member are what help shape Sycomp to be what it is today and what it will be in the future.
