Maricela Ostrand Featured in Comparably Listicle Discussing Why Beacon Hill Is A Company Women Love Working For

March 15th, 2023

Maricela Ostrand, Senior Regional Director of Beacon Hill Life Sciences, was interviewed to discuss why Beacon Hill (BHSG) is a place where female employees love to work.

Kicking things off by reflecting on what Beacon Hill does to promote gender equity, it is important to note the nature of the role. As many employees operate with commission-based roles, hard work can really pay off. On this topic, Maricela said:

“Pay equity as it relates to performance is an initiative that BHSG takes very seriously. Our Division Directors own and manage their own P&L which allows for more autonomy and oversight to ensure the team is equitable. I can think of a handful of situations where we have found pay inequities that were fixed, and coincidentally, in all of these cases, they were women. The reason for this was not because they started lower than their counterparts, but rather, their ability to advance faster in these particular cases resulted in their pay needing to be adjusted sooner than anticipated.”

Regarding evening the scales for women in the workplace, Maricela stated:

“Beacon Hill evens the scales for women in the workplace by way of recognition and allowing leadership opportunities even through accommodation. Our most successful producing manager in all of life sciences is a woman who sits remotely. Even though remote work situations are not our preference and often creates an additional obstacle of producer success, when someone is able to succeed and break records, we will find ways to make their contributions more meaningful.”
