HR Services for Schools and Universities

Educational Institutions

Educational institutions are complex due to the diverse population being served — students, faculty, staff and invited guests. Not only that, educational institutions are often faced with rising costs and a turnover of students year over year. At Exude, we work with schools of all sizes and across all channels, whether it be charter schools, community colleges, trade schools or colleges and universities to help contain costs, implement diverse and inclusive practices and support their business functions.

Solutions for Educational Institutions

We believe a partner should be far more than a vendor. Exude is a boutique firm, with all of the consulting practices and expertise of our largest competitors, housed under one roof in Philadelphia. Our areas of support for educational institutions include, but are not limited to:

Diversity & Inclusion

We partner with you to identify strategies that create a culture of inclusion and train your students, faculty, and staff on the necessary behaviors to be a fully inclusive workforce that fosters efficiency, productivity and success.

We offer several DEI services for educational institutions, including:

  • Diversity consulting: Our experienced diversity consultants provide insights based on educational industry trends and help you define your DEI strategy.
  • DEI training and development: Our DEI training for schools reinforces education and self-awareness with accountability to accelerate your team’s learning.
  • DEI assessments: Our assessments involve focus groups or surveys to understand your organizational culture and employee perceptions before recommending the best solutions.

These services help drive progress in your educational institution, leading to a more diverse talent pool, better employee retention and increased student and parent satisfaction.
