ATLANTA, April 25, 2023 - Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a leading global business services company that supports, protects and connects major consumer purchases, has been named to the Forbes list of the Best Employers for Diversity for the fourth consecutive year. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The 2023 awards list was announced on April 25, 2023 and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.
The Best Employers for Diversity were selected based on a survey of approximately 45,000 U.S. employees working for companies with a minimum of 1,000 employees. The evaluation was based on three criteria:
- Direct Recommendations: Employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements regarding Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Disability, LGBTQA+ and General Diversity in their current workplace. The recommendations of women, elders, and ethnic minorities were weighted higher than those in non-minority groups.
- Indirect Recommendations: Participants were also given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out, either positively or negatively, regarding diversity. Only the recommendations of minority groups were considered.
- KPIs: Extensive research was carried out to evaluate how companies fared across a range of diversity-related best practices, such as the presence of resource groups within the company, the publication of diversity data, and the share of women in board and executive positions.
