President, Globe Novations
Hyter, 55, has been heralded in the human resources industry as a leader in the realm of workplace diversity. Hyter began integrating his innovative philosophy — that diversity pertains to ways of thinking, beliefs, and even behavior, as much as it does race or gender — into the company’s training materials and classes when he became its CEO in 2001.
Global Novations offers major corporations and small mom and pop shops across the United States and in Europe. (Clients include Microsoft Corp. and Procter & Gamble Co.) diversity, inclusion, and leadership development training. Employers who can learn to integrate employees’ personal philosophies into their corporate philosophy have better track records in attracting new customers — and they tend to have more meaningful relationships with their employees, says Hyter.
