    As the nation's population grows increasingly diverse, companies must expand diversity in their organizations and recruit talent from an array of backgrounds to remain competitive. Henkel is attending the conferences to strengthen its workforce and find potential candidates, as well as share the company's diversity and inclusion efforts with prospective employees. As a global company, Henkel employs about 48,000 employees worldwide and serves consumers in more than 125 countries. Ensuring a diverse workforce that reflects its consumers is vital to Henkel's success. ?

    Juan Serrano, director channel development, has attended the conferences as a Henkel representative and successfully filled an open position with a NSHMBA recruit. "Attending conferences like the one organized by NSHMBA helps us expand our outreach and target talented, diverse candidates we might otherwise miss," said Serrano.

    In addition to attending the career expos, Henkel is a sponsor for both conferences and will conduct interviews onsite for available positions.
