2009 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity

worker treatment

DiversityInc Top 50 competition is an editorial, objective process, obtained through a detailed, analytic survey of more than 200 questions. The overall intent is not just to track metrics but to draw an accurate picture of a company's culture.


  • Human Capital: includes race/ethnicity/gender/age-demographics questions surrounding the work force, new hires, management by levels, promotions and retention. We do not count demographic areas in which companies significantly over-index demographically. This category also includes questions on work/life benefits and recruitment strategies, including those aimed at LGBT people and people with disabilities.
  • Corporate and Organizational Communications: examines such internal factors as employee-resource groups, mentoring and employee surveys, and such external factors as philanthropic contributions, multicultural marketing and web-site communication of diversity branding.
  • Supplier Diversity: looks at percent of procurement budgets spent with suppliers owned by Blacks, Latinos, Asians, American Indians, women, LGBT people and people with disabilities. It also examines whether supplier-diversity numbers are audited and have third-party certification; whether companies include supplier diversity in their requests for proposals (RFPs); and whether they mentor suppliers and offer them financial assistance.
  • CEO Commitment: is the most heavily weighted area in the survey. Questions examine the CEO's personal involvement in diversity, how she/he holds executives accountable for diversity success and board-of-director demographics.
