At Harris, our number one value is respect of the individual. Respect means listening, supporting and protecting each other, no matter our differences. We celebrate those differences and know that diversity will make Harris, and the world, better than it was yesterday.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have seen disruptions to our work/life norms. We now have children home from school or daycare, elderly family members living with us, significant others working from home, and most social activities and caregiving support canceled. To help our employees cope during this difficult time we have created Harris EDU. Harris EDU is hosted on Goggle Classroom and offers curriculum to keep children entertained and learning while their parents are working.
Kristin Los, Product Manager with ACCEO Retail, has been adjusting to working from home with her kids. When her daughter asked if she could help Kristin work, instead of telling her no, she said “sure!”. Her daughter sat on her lap with her earphones on while they worked on a spreadsheet together. She ended up writing a nice little note to one of Kristin's colleagues to brighten his day. #WeAreHarris #HarrisHomeOffice #FutureHarris

The theme for this year's International Women's Day was #EachforEqual because an equal world is an enabled world. The race is on for the gender equal boardroom, a gender equal government, gender equal media coverage, gender equal workplaces, gender equal sports coverage, more gender equality in health and wealth ... so let's make it happen. Let's be #EachforEqual.
This month's value is Respect of the Individual. Our values are in no particular order, however, this one does top them all. The rest of our values are not sustainable without a solid base of respect.
