50 best companies for diversity
Running the gamut of education, health care, and tech, these top companies understand the benefits of a diverse workforce—and they’re hiring now.
The world is getting a much needed lesson in the importance of diversity. According to the 2020 Monster State of the Candidate survey, half (52%) of job candidates say diversity, equality, and inclusion in the workplace is "very important" to them. Millennials (57%) are more likely to say diversity, equity, and inclusion is "very important," compared to Gen X (47%) and baby boomers (49%). Those numbers should be higher, and maybe they would be if more people knew that intrinsic value that diverse workforces bring to businesses.
The last couple of years have seen companies in various industries ramping up diversity and inclusion training to improve hiring practices. That's not by accident. A recent survey by McKinsey called Delivering Through Diversity found that ethnically diverse executive teams were 33% more likely to see better-than-average profits; and companies that feature gender diversity in management positions are 21% more likely to experience above-average profits.
During Monster's LGBTQ Pride and Work panel, Tom Bourdon, head of inclusion and diversity at Staples, said, "This is why you now see more and more companies either having a person or department that is going to be dedicated to diversity and inclusion because companies realize that the more diverse and inclusive the workplace, the better they're going to be able to attract top talent, serve a really diverse marketplace that's out there, and ultimately come out on top in a really competitive work environment."
Recently, Forbes, in partnership with research firm Statista, released its third-ever America's Best Employers For Diversity list, which represents companies where diversity is reflected from the top down. To compile the list, Statista surveyed 60,000 Americans working for companies with more than 1,000 employees, asking questions about gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and disability, with responses from underrepresented groups holding greater weight in the ranking.
Great news: Many of the top 50 companies on Forbes’ list are hiring on Monster. These top employers run the gamut from universities to hospitality corporations, banking and financial services to health care organizations, and yes, even tech companies.
