Allstate Earns a Spot on the 2017 Top 50 Companies for Diversity List
NORTHBROOK, Ill., May 3, 2017 – Allstate earned 33rd place on the 2017 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, DiversityInc announced Tuesday. This is the 12th consecutive year Allstate has been recognized for its efforts to promote inclusive diversity in the workplace.
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.
“At Allstate, we know that our success stems from listening to diverse voices,” said Christy Harris, Allstate’s vice president, talent acquisition and inclusive diversity. “We continue to foster inclusive diversity at our company because we share innovative ideas, understand customer needs and work harder when people are accepted for who they are. Every voice at Allstate counts.”
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.
“There are simply not enough qualified people to hire. A company’s ability to find the best and brightest, advance and retain them equitably is a decisive competitive advantage,” notes Luke Visconti, founder and CEO of DiversityInc. “The DiversityInc Top 50 have a decisive metrics-evidenced ability to treat people more fairly than other large companies. They also have a greater-than-average return for their shareholders.”
