Respect-based retention principles



Women serve as nearly half of the labor force with 21% in C-suite seats and only 4% of these seats are occupied by Black or Latina women.


In 2000, women were only 4% of the veteran population. By 2040, women will be 18% of the veteran population. Today’s women veterans are the best-educated and most diverse generation. 


Immigrant women overall are less likely than U.S.-born women to work in managerial or professional occupations (32.7 percent compared with 41.1 percent).


Only 34.6 percent of working-age women with disabilities (3.5 million) are employed in the U.S. compared to 82.5 percent of working-age women without disabilities.


25% Women of age 65 and over are projected to make up 25 percent of the female labor force in 2024, while older men are projected to make up 21 percent of the male labor force.

HBGM&Co. centers all people and advocates for those that identify as Veteran, Differently Abled, Immigrant and Mature-aged. Companies who are educated on how to retain them benefit from high employee retention with research showing an 18% increase in valuation versus the average.

An Ambitious Firm With a Lasting Impact


Entry-level placement of a Trailblazer within a wellness company, resulting in a promotion to Operations Manager within one year. 

“I have amassed a number of powerhouse skills on my resume but was missing the job title and salary to match. HBGM&Co. assessed my skills on a macro level and matched me with a company I not only aligned with personally, but a company with a clear trajectory towards upward growth. Through development and coaching I scaled with the company from an entry-level position to middle management. The concept is brilliant and I am thriving in this new role.”
