Aramark (NYSE: ARMK), a global leader in food, facilities management and uniforms, was once again named to DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for diversity list.
“We are proud to be recognized by DiversityInc as a Top 50 company and share this honor with our 270,000 associates around the world,” said Lynn McKee, Executive Vice President of Human Resources for Aramark. “The strength and success of our company is fueled by our diverse team members who proudly represent many different backgrounds, perspectives, talents, beliefs and values.”
The DiversityInc Top 50 list, issued yearly since 2001, recognizes the nation’s top companies for diversity and inclusion management. These companies excel in such areas as hiring, retaining and promoting women, minorities, people with disabilities, LGBT and veterans.
"Events of the past year have demonstrated that decisive ethical leadership is necessary to guide any organization to success," notes Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc. "Successful leaders hold themselves accountable to be culturally competent, a skill that requires constant learning. DiversityInc Top 50 Companies have a metrics-evidenced ability to treat people more fairly than other large companies. They also have a greater-than-average return for their shareholders."
DiversityInc’s extensive annual survey yields an empirically driven ranking based on recruitment, talent development, senior leadership commitment and supplier diversity. This year’s competition was improved by new survey questions, increased emphasis on fairness over chasing numbers and more sophisticated analysis from DiversityInc’s data scientists.
“This year DiversityInc saw an increase in technology and pharmaceutical companies, industries that are typically underrepresented, participate in the survey,” said Carolynn Johnson, DiversityInc’s COO. “We also have a record number of CEOs and US leads who attended the event, indicating the importance of diversity and inclusion, as well as the validity of the Top 50 event.”
