Celebrating Mexico's Independence Day and Our Diverse Team Culture

Celebrating Mexico's Independence Day and Our Diverse Team Culture

Eastridge Blog posted by Amanda Nicosia on September 14, 2021

At Eastridge, we take pride in our international presence and global divisions. All September long during Hispanic Heritage Month, we honor our Latino employees, our teams in Mexico, and our global candidates, striving to continue learning more about their exquisite culture and remarkable history.

Today, Eastridge celebrates Mexico’s Independence Day.

Commemorating the uprising of a group of Mexican revolutionaries following 300 years of Spanish colonialism, enslavement, and exploitation of precious natural resources, Mexico’s Independence Day honors the Hidalgo Revolt, which occured on September 16th, 1810, and is considered by many to be the start of Mexico’s independence. However, independence was not fully achieved until over a decade later in 1821. The holiday is traditionally honored with parades, celebrations, and long-standing customs spanning many generations.

Last year, Eastridge saw the expansion of our sourcing center in Mexico, serving candidates and clients globally while supporting the growth of our domestic and international divisions. What started as a team of three in 2019 has quickly grown to a team of 70 members.

Made possible by our Mexico team, Eastridge established a new service line of InSourcing, granting clients access to dedicated sources that supplement their recruiting efforts, eliminate barriers, and help them save valuable time. Using this service allows major retailers to expand into new markets and capture international opportunities, for example.

In addition, Eastridge’s employee-led LatinXellence affinity group addresses vital topics and issues centered on world events, news, and more -- affecting both the U.S. and Latin America. These conversations foster a mutual understanding between our cross-border team members, empowering them at work, in their communities, and through valuable insight for serving an international workforce with distinct customs and needs.

Final Thoughts

Eastridge would not be where it is today without the invaluable influence of our global teams, leaders, and candidates. As we celebrate Mexico’s Independence Day, we thank you all for your hard work, perseverance, and dedication to our mission of empowering opportunity and enrichment through work -- for all.
