Hispanic Network Magazine (HNM) has named SC Johnson as a Top Diversity Employer on its 2013 Best of the Best list. The list appeared in the magazine’s special summer issue that hit newsstands on August 15, 2013.
“SC Johnson is honored to be recognized for the fourth consecutive year by the Hispanic Network Magazine alongside so many outstanding companies,” said Pascale Meyran, Senior Vice President, SC Johnson Global Human Resources. “We are proud to be a family company committed to hiring employees from all backgrounds. We believe that a diverse workforce drives innovation and supports a culture of inclusion across all levels of the business.”
HNM polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies and in producing the list, hopes to ignite an environment of teamwork in which Hispanics and other minorities have access to all applicable business and career opportunities. More than 250 companies and institutions participated this past year; SC Johnson joins Bank of America, American Airlines, General Mills, Ernst and Young, LLP, Macy’s and others on the list of Top Diversity Employer winners.
SC Johnson established an Office of Diversity & Inclusion in 1992 to recognize and support the unique backgrounds, talents and abilities of the company’s employees. Since its conception, six employee-driven business councils have been developed in the United States alone, which provide support and networking opportunities, such as mentoring, community outreach, career development and cultural awareness activities.
