Top-ranked Sodexo runs a program called "Spirit of Mentoring" and uses metrics to provide a scorecard for its diversity progress.
The IT workplace is home to people from a broad range of ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, abilities, and life experiences. To succeed in recruiting top talent and retaining it, companies must recognize the office dynamics arising from this diversity and make the most of it. That means cultivating the unique perspectives that this kind of diversity brings. More and more companies are doing just this; many of them are tech-focused, and others are non-tech industry companies that still have a great need for top IT talent. DiversityInc recently released its "Top 50 Companies for Diversity" list, and you may be pleasantly surprised to see the extent of efforts that marquee businesses are making to maximize the value of their multi-cultural workforce - from mentoring to resource groups to charitable efforts. Nearly 450 companies took part in the research involved for DiversityInc to compile its list, which is derived exclusively from corporate survey submissions in which 200 questions are asked. Here are the companies that came out on top. For the complete list, click here.
