If DirectEmployers 2023 Annual Meeting & Conference (DEAMcon23) is any indicator, employers are making great strides in creating work environments that are diverse and equitable, but also supporting a culture of inclusion and belonging – which is crucial to success and employee retention efforts. Each year, DiversityInc surveys participating companies and each completed submission receives a free report card, assessing its performance versus the competitor’s overall performance in six key aspects of workplace fairness:

  • Human Capital Metrics: Four levels of management, total management, total workforce, promotions, retention, and new hires
  • Leadership Accountability: Looks at Board of Directors, CEO and Senior Leadership
  • Talent Programs: Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), mentoring, high potential and sponsorship programs
  • Workforce Practices: Talent acquisition, talent management, onboarding, benefits and supplier diversity
  • Supplier Diversity: Spend with companies owned by people from underrepresented groups
  • Philanthropy: Contributions to non-profit organizations focused on people from underrepresented groups and employee volunteerism

Earlier this month, DiversityInc debuted its Top 50 Companies for Diversity, and we are proud to say that of the companies named, 62% are Members of DirectEmployers (denoted with an asterisk below)! Let’s take a look at this year’s ranking:
