Having a diverse and inclusive work environment has become increasingly important for job seekers in 2016.
In PR and marketing especially, having a varied workforce can help professionals relate to a greater variety of audiences. More and more, hiring managers seek to hire diverse talent.
To determine which companies most successfully appealed to workers by way of those standards, Thomas Reuters looked at multiple factors.
From this year’s Diversity and Inclusion index via Business Insider:
To determine the ranking, Thomson Reuters looked at metrics such as board gender diversity, internal promotions and day care services, which were then weighted based on importance in the market and how each company stacks up against its peers.
In the U.S., technology, pharmaceutical and consumer companies topped Reuters’ list.
Here are the top U.S. organizations with the highest diversity and inclusion scores:
1. Johnson & Johnson offers mentoring opportunities, J&J Diversity University and a supplier diversity program to encourage employees to incorporate diversity when they collaborate.
3. Colgate-Palmolive Co. encourages its employees to participate in network groups including Asian Heritage Group and Women’s Network, as well as several educational and cultural programs.
5. Procter & Gamble Co. has spent $2.6 billion with women and minority-owned suppliers and focuses various efforts on improving the working experience of deaf and blind employees.
Want to work for an organization that values diversity? Consider Columbus, Ohio-based Inspire PR—a rapidly expanding, woman-owned PR boutique.
If you’re looking to join a team that is passionate about its marketing and public relations work and proud of the clients it represents, apply to be Inspire’s next account manager.
Candidates should have five or more years of communications experience and be able to manage key client relationships, lead account work and develop strategic plans.
